Congratulations Richard, Douglas, and Yonghang!
A Buffet of DB2 LUW Tips and Advice

Replays available in WMV and M4V formats!

96% of our audience learned something! Today's "special guests" included five contestants that shared some very helpful and creative DB2 LUW tips. Our judges chose their favorite three to advance to the March finals. Watch the replay to learn about the "db2greg" command, performance tips for migrating from Oracle to DB2 LUW, an excellent technique for diagnosing lock contention, and much more!

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Despite two contestants not showing up, we still had a terrific contest kickoff that is full of terrific DB2 advice! We are still looking for contestant applications until 10 February 2012 to fill slots on the 17th and 24th. To possibly entice more contestants into participating, we are easing the presentation burden in March and reducing the finalist shows to March 2nd, 16th, and 30th (no presentations on the 9th or 23rd).

It's that time of year again! DB2's GOT TALENT is BACK! In 2012, the prizes are BIGGER! For our Contestants, DB2's GOT TALENT provides a great way to showcase your DB2 skills. For our studio audience and replay viewers, DB2's GOT TALENT provides a grand buffet of DB2 tips, tricks, and advice!
