ALL ABOUT IDUG Austin Texas May 23-26

plus DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 Winners!

1st Place Winner - IDUG Badge: Rohit Kumawat

2nd Place Winner - Apple iPad: Ankan Garg

87% of our audience learned something and 100% had a few good laughs! Terry Johnson, IDUG Chair, shared a great presentation about the IDUG conference that was packed with tips and advice, and we announced our DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 winners! Quite amazingly, "must be present to win" had incredible significance in the final outcome. Read on dear lovers of DB2...


Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Remarkably, the contestant that had the most YouTube video "likes" (votes) did not attend our show today. And, once again, we are reminded that EVERY vote counts. As you'll see in the replay video, 1st place beat 2nd place by only FIVE votes! Because our contestant with the most votes was not present in our audience to win, our 2nd and 3rd place contestants actually ended up winning 1st and 2nd places! WOW! My head is still spinning!

I would like to offer my congratulations and thanks to all of our contestants! You are all winners! Anyone that takes the initiative to share their knowledge with their peers is a winner in my opinion! A community grows when its members share their knowledge and resources! Thank you, thank you, and THANK YOU for demonstrating the spirit of IDUG!

DB2's GOT TALENT 2016 WINNERS

1ST PLACE: Rohit Kumawat, Tata Consultancy Services

On 26 February, Rohit gave a great presentation on how he migrated 20+ DB2/AIX databases from Power6 to Power8 in mere minutes. Rohit has won a free badge to the 2016 IDUG Conference of his choice - and I hope he chooses Austin Texas! To enjoy Rohit's 1st place prize winning presentation, CLICK HERE to view it on YouTube.

2ND PLACE: Ankan Garg, Tata Consultancy Services

On 4 March, Ankan gave an interesting presentation on HADR challenges, solutions, and advice. Ankan has won an Apple iPad and now needs to make a very important decision - white or black? DBI Software will have this iPad engraved with his name and then ship it to him. To enjoy Ankan's 2nd place prize winning presentation, CLICK HERE to view it on YouTube.
