  • -IDX-5100 Fun with SQL
    A SQL Dojo is a meeting where a bunch of developers, DBA and SYSPROGS get together to work on a number of SQL challenges. They are there to have fun and to engage in a group effort in order to improve their skills in a non-competitive, collaborative, fun environment. The goal is to have practical hands-on experience within a group of peers, learning a specific technical skill within one hour at IDUGThe exercise is considered successful when it is completed within allocated time AND audience can repeat the exercise at home by themselves. At the end of the dojo the participants receive, a working solution by dojo leaders, which might not correspond to the solution the participants came up with, but is also working.
    Speaker: Dan Luksetich, DanL Database Consulting, Consultant;Kurt Struyf, suadasoft, senior consultant
  • -IDX-5508 CSN and IBM Present Best Practices for IBM Data Studio
    IBM Data Studio provides an integrated modular environment for database administration and application development for DB2. CSN will share their experiences using IBM Data Studio and talk about hints and tips that they have learned to get the most out of the tool. An example scenario from CSN was to combine IBM Data Studio with the IBM Explorer to give the mainframe DBA's a non 3270 based environment where they could do their main daily DBA tasks. We will explore this use case along with many more that helped CSN gain success with Data Studio.

  • -IDX-5738 High-Performance Application-Design Strategies for Database Systems
    Many hours go into designing databases & reviewing the SQL used to access those databases. In fact, this topic is the subject of many white papers and presentations about performance tuning. But little material is available on how applications should properly access database systems for high performance. During this presentation, application designers will learn many of the pitfalls to avoid when designing applications that access database systems as well about high-performance access strategies. Although this presentation is not a lesson in writing SQL, it does address some new SQL features in DB2 11 for z/Os and DB2 10.5 for LUW that can affect application design.
    Speaker: Douglas Partch, CSG International, Lead Data Engineer
  • -IDX-6709 Get the Lowdown on NoSQL Databases for Faster, Leaner Cloud Service Management
    Today's application developers use NoSQL databases for faster, leaner service management for cloud. It's more than a trend of data storage on the cloud; it's about performance, scalability and availability with real implications for managing data. Today's enterprise data architects face a dizzying array of NoSQL options. Join a distinguished panel led by Dr. Angel Diaz (VP, IBM Open Technologies & Cloud), including Max Schireson (CEO, MongoDB), Adam Kocloski (CTO, Cloudant), John Ponzo (Fellow, IBM Mobile) and Dan Wolfson(CTO, IBM InfoSphere) as they discuss how enterprises are leveraging NoSQL for powering a new generation feature rich mobile apps, accelerating delivery of Mobile back-end services and take the worry out of NoSQL.
