Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Twerk. Eggnog. Coffee. Bourbon. DB2 friends. These are a few of my favorite things! Today's show just simply warmed my heart. It was a joy listening to everyone share their 2013 news and what they are looking forward to next year. No doubt, DB2 BLU 10.5 and DB2 z/OS V11 have certainly been positively impactful to people's lives. What's coming next year? You'll just have to watch and listen!
