Bonus: Learn about DB2 V11's unofficial support of JSON and please take our one question poll. Enjoy...

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

George is definitely one of my Top 10 favorite IBM people. He's a technology guy, honest, warm, with just a little sprinkle of sales speak. He's genuinely an advocate for the DB2 technology he represents, and he's really good at helping people understand complex topics. Have you seen or used "DB2 Demo"? It's a really cool educational training tool that you can use to learn many capabilities of DB2 LUW. I'm in awe that he developed it while flying on planes around the world - I usually watch movies!
