DB2's GOT TALENT 2016
3 Contestants Compete for YOUR Votes!
Great DB2 LUW and z/OS presentations!
Most of our studio audience learned something! We have a new format for our contest this year! Contestants only present ONE time, up to seven minutes, in hopes of earning votes from the DB2 community, their peers, and friends. Voting is achieved by simply LIKING videos on YouTube. We've embedded the videos herein for your convenience, plus we'll share the URLs for direct access. Cheers to your learning! Watch...
Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary
The definition of insanity is to repeat the same thing whilst expecting different results. So, this year we're trying some new things. One of our contestants failed to show up. You can't win if you don't show up, and this year everyone that shows up is a winner! Another of our contestants had some technical difficulty - that's ok, we invited him back to try again on 4 March 2016. It was the compassionate thing to do, because, after all, he is from Iceland and could probably use a little warmth and hospitality from down south.
DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 - Participate
Our call for contestants is STILL OPEN! Only
20 18 8 slots available! Unlike prior years, contestants will only present ONCE! And, every Contestant will earn an honorarium prize ranging from $10 to $75 just for giving a short 7 minute presentation!
DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 - ROUND #1
We have three contestant videos for you to watch and learn from. They are conveniently embedded below. This year voting is achieved via "Liking" the videos. So, if you like a contestant video, if you like the contestant, or if you learned something from the video, then click the THUMBS UP to like it! Apparently the ability to "LIKE" a video (thumbs up) is only available on YouTube (not via the embedded videos below).
