Eggnog Party!
Celebrating 2015 with 2016 Insights!

95% of our audience learned something! 5% attended for the eggnog, fun, and insights! We sang, we danced, and we learned what was great about DB2 in 2015 and what people are looking forward to in 2016! Scott got a little crazy with twinkling DB2 Experts. 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 95% 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!

Ho ho ho - our post-show survey!

Silly us. We asked what people were looking forward to in 2015. Yeah, that probably should've been 2016, but most respondents figured this out anyways! We also asked what the "secret prize word" was - ha ha - there wasn't one this year! Last year we gave out prizes to everyone in our audience that knew the secret word. This year DBI spent all our marketing money at the DBI/Triton reception at IDUG Dublin.
