Posted by Scott in General
First, thank you to our 28 contestants that entered the DB2's GOT TALENT Contest! We appreciate your willingness to share your DB2 knowledge with the DB2 community! Our judges had to make tough decisions to determine our Top 10 Finalists! The March Finals will be held on March 2nd, 16th, and 30th! Finalists will have FOUR minutes to offer the tip or advice of their choice in hopes of earning VOTES from our studio audience and replay viewers! Our Top 10 are the cream of the crop! Don't miss these shows!


Congratulations Richard, Douglas, Yonghang, Kohli, Elder, Rodolfo, Kingo, Brian, Ember, and Jean! You made the Top 10! Start browsing and think about how you'll spend your $50 gift certificate! We'll be getting these out to you in late March! Here's what you need to know for the finals:
  • March 2nd: You get 4 minutes to impress the world-wide DB2 community! You can present any topic you like - a polished version of your February audition presentation or a new topic!
    • Please send your topic to db2sgottalent "at" by 28 February
  • March 16th: We will have a theme of "DB2 Commands". Each finalist should have a presentation ready that offers a tip or advice on any DB2 command. You will have 4 minutes. Popular voting will determine who is "safe" (moving on to March 30th) and who is "not safe". Of those who are "not safe", our judges will "save" one finalist to advance to March 30th.
    • Please send your command topic to db2sgottalent "at" by 9 March.
  • March 30th: We will have a theme of "Your favorite DB2 Success Story". Except for those finalists that are dismissed on March 16th, each remaining finalist should have a 4-6 minute presentation ready. DB2 Community popular voting between March 16 and March 29 will again determine who is "safe" and who is not. Our judges, at their discretion, will have the option of "saving" one finalist. The "safe" and "saved" finalists will be voted on by the DB2 Community during March 30 through April 12th.
    • Please send your Success Story topic to db2sgottalent "at" by 23 March
  • April 13th: ALL ABOUT IDUG and DB2's GOT TALENT Winners Announced! Make sure you REGISTER for this show if you have not already done so! Top prize winners MUST be present to win!
