Eggnog Party!
Celebrating 2014 with 2015 Insights!

82% of our audience learned something! 18% attended for the eggnog, fun, and insights! We paid tribute to Aamer Sachedina, we sang, we danced, and we learned what was great about DB2 in 2014 and what people are looking forward to in 2015! Watch or listen, and learn...

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

A couple of our guests were unable to attend, but that's ok - we put words into their mouths for them! And, some of our guests had a lot of cool and interesting things to say. I learned a few things too, as did 82% of our studio audience! Melanie Stopfer joined us during her vacation - that's commitment to the DB2 community! Listen to what she and other IBM guests say, for there's a very good chance you're going to learn something you didn't know!
