Judge Susan Visser, IBM, wrote another excellent blog about our 3rd contestant search show. Rather than steal her thunder, we suggest you READ HER BLOG! 96% of our studio audience indicated that they learned something that will be helpful to them! Congratulations to John, Sameer, and Thiru who were selected by our judges to advance to the March finals! We have just one contestant slot open for 25 February if you're interested in sharing your DB2 knowledge with your peers!

Thank you to all of our contestants. We appreciate your willingness to share your DB2 knowledge with the DB2 community. The tips and lessons learned were excellent! Here is a recap of today's finalists and their topics:

  • John, A cookbook process for moving data from DB2 mainframe to LUW using federated tables
  • Sameer, Assorted tips for DB2 monitoring and SQL tuning
  • Thiru, Using EXPLAIN FROM ACTUALS to achieve successful DB2 monitoring

For our studio audience, much to our dismay, once again the survey did not pop up after the show. We've learned from GoToWebinar technical support that this is "an opportunity for improvement" that arises when a Webinar is defined as a repeating event with the same attendees. We did this, of course, so that people would not have to re-register for every show in the series. No worries. We'll figure out another way to collect your feedback and award prizes for attendance.
