Upcoming IDUG Tech Conferences EMEA and Austrialasia

By Matt Huras

Folks, check out the upcoming International DB2 Users Group (IDUG) technical conferences in Melbourne, Australia in September, 2015 and Dublin, Ireland in November, 2015. These conferences are the top way of growing your database expertise and enlarging your social industry network around DB2. They are the real deal. Top notch industry professionals – developers and practitioners are here. The best quality content you can get, in my opinion.

I’ll be there, along with several of my colleges. We’ll participate in various presentations, special interest groups (a kind of mini- meetup), panel sessions, dine-around and other events. Everyone is welcome, of course. Click on these images or go to and click on the Events tab for more information.
