Upcoming Db2 Events – As Summer 2020 Goes Virtual

Posted by Kim May on May 20, 2020 under DB2 Education, DB2 for Linux Unix Windows, DB2 for z/OS, International DB2 Users Group (IDUG), TFG Blog.

I can’t say I’m too disappointed to be taking a break from conference travel and post conference exhaustion, and it’s refreshing to see the creative changes facilitated by the mass transition to virtual events. Given that the primary goal of these events, whether in person or virtual, is to share technical announcements and updates, it seems either format can be successful.  And of course, each has its pros and cons.

When this is all over, however, I look forward to reconnecting – in person – with friends and colleagues to share technical updates.  Along with dinner and drinks!!

With a virtual “Cheers!” to everyone, here is a list of current and upcoming Db2 events:

1. Going on NOW – Enterprise Data & AI on IBM Z Virtual Symposium, May 19, 20, 21
This complimentary virtual event will explain how to use IBM Z data for modern engagement, analytics and AI applications to become truly insights-driven. Please note: you must register to access copies of all replays.

2. July – IDUG Virtual Db2 Tech Conference, July 20, 21, and 23
This three-day event will be followed by three additional weeks of IDUG conference content, making this the perfect way to access the cutting-edge sessions of an IDUG event directly from your home or office.

Conference registration also comes with complimentary, year-long premium membership to IDUG, enabling full access to IDUG exclusive articles, blogs, presentations, and forums.

Cost: $199

3. August – SHARE Boston, dates TBD
In an effort to continue to provide education, networking and influence, SHARE Boston will now be a virtual event. SHARE is looking to deliver opportunities to learn and network with peers in this new format. Stay tuned to the SHARE website for updates.

4. Db2 LUW Virtual Users Group – July, date TBD
IBM’s Db2 LUW coordinator extraordinaire Kay Groski is working to schedule speakers and topics so the groups she started in 2018 (including the Mid-Atlantic group I attend) can extend their reach by going virtual – at least for a while. As details are confirmed I will share more here.
