IDUG North America 2015: XML and more…

May 8, 2015

I spent this week in Philadelphia at the annual DB2 user group conference. The week was packed with excellent technical sessions, panel discussions, customer presentations, hands-on labs, seminars, and lots of networking opportunities.

As you would expect from such a big event, a very large variety of DB2 and application development topics were on the grid, including DB2 BLU, high availability, DB2 11 for z/OS, query optimization, DB2 in the Cloud, and many others.

And, almost 9 years since the introduction of pureXML in DB2 9.1, XML was still a popular topic at this year’s conference, with some excellent sessions from DB2 users and from IBMers:

E03 – XML – Essentials for the DB2 z/OS DBA
Thanikachalam “Billy” Sundarrajan, Fifth Third Bank

E05 – XML and JSON in Examples
Jan Marek, CA Technologies

E17 – XML Data Processing Performance
Aleskey Slutch and Alexander Veremyev, Raiffeisenbank Russia

Hands-on Lab: Learning Exciting JSON and XML in IBM DB2 for z/OS
Jane Man, IBM Corporation
