5th csDUG Conference: A great success!

The 5th csDUG Conference happened last Thursday (Nov. 23), in Prague. This year, this one-day FREE conference had 2 tracks (Database Administrators and Database Developers) and was attended by 50 DB2 users, mainly from Czech Republic and Slovakia. The event was held in the IBM lab in Chodov, and was sponsored by CA Technologies and IBM. Thanks to all the speakers made the trip to share their DB2 expertise and give presentations about DB2 for z/OS.

    Thank you Philippe and all crew for organising and sponsoring it. I really liked the technical content and possibility to exchange few words with other db2 users that you managed to attract to attend this conference. It was also good to meet and talk with CA and IBM experts there. Truly a an added value for all participants.

    PS> Sandwiches for lunch were also very nice - I like idea of standing lunch, as you can talk with others freely
