Finals Round #3

Top 6 Finalists Compete for YOUR Votes!

Great DB2 LUW presentations!

100% of our studio audience learned something! Today's presentations included topics on IBM DB2 LUW Oracle Compatibility, scheduling db2top via crontab, monitoring enhancements for BLU columnar tables, lessons learned on defining disk storage, where to get, and how to install, free drivers for DB2 10.5 Express-C, and how to connect Java to DB2 via Hibernate for good performance! This show contains another buffet of useful tips and advice! Enjoy!

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

I goofed. I asked the judges to save two of our bottom four finalists, but I should have asked them to save three. We subsequently "discussed" this matter and the judges have decided to save Rohit. So, Rohit, sorry to send you on an emotional roller coaster, but you're still in it!

To review, based on DB2 community voting, Rajesh and Roberto were "safe". Rohit, Brandon, Sree, and Akshat presented to earn "saves" from our judges. The judges have saved Rohit, Brandon, and Akshat.
