DB2 pureXML Webinars and Bootcamps

February 14, 2010

If you are new to using XML in DB2, or if you have colleagues that are looking for an introduction to DB2 pureXML, make note of the following (free) opportunities.

DB2 pureXML Webinar

On February 24 there will be a live Webinar titled “XML and DB2 pureXML for Beginners“. It starts at 1pm US Eastern Time (5pm GMT) and takes about 1 hour. The presenter is my colleague Bryan Patterson, and I will be also be there to answer questions. At the following URL you can find more information and a link to register:

The actual registration page currently says “Duration 2h30min” but that’s incorrect – it’ll be just about an hour or so.

DB2 pureXML Bootcamps

If you want to learn DB2 pureXML in more detail, including XPath, XQuery, SQL/XML, XML indexes, XML compression, and so on, consider attending one of IBM’s free DB2 pureXML bootcamps. A bootcamp is basically a 2-day (or 3-day) course consisting of presentations and hands-on labs where attendees can gain or deepen their DB2 pureXML skills. It’s for application developers, architects, DBAs, and other interested folks.

For the next weeks and months, DB2 pureXML bootcamps are scheduled in Chicago, Toronto, New York (Manhattan), and a few other cities. The latest schedule and registration information can be found at the following URL:

If you’d like to see a bootcamp scheduled in a city near you, please send me an email with suggestions (mnicola@us.ibm.com). No promises, but we’ll see what we can do!
