Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

What a fun show! Michael's humor and storytelling abilities were simply delightful, and we had some fun with sound effects too! His presentation provides abundant SQL and DB2 command examples. I predict this show will be one of our top 10 for 2013! If you can't improve the performance of your DB2 LUW databases after watching this show, then you need to watch it again!!! Pay attention!!!
