Presentations for PDUG conferences Wrocław 27-28 September 2017 POLAND

Only a few months have passed since the last conference and we are already planning another!

As we announced at our last meeting, our next event will take place September 27-28, 2017 in Wroclaw (IBM Global Services Delivery Center, Muchoborska 8). This will be our first visit to this city, which we are extremely happy about. But what would this conference be without excellent presenters and all those interesting topics to discuss? Let's create another unique atmosphere of our conference, filled with experience and news from the world of DB2.

Presentations are open!

To submit presentations for the conference, simply fill out a short survey available on our website. (Red button on the right) We strongly encourage users, administrators and developers to share their knowledge and experience in DB2.
Presentations that you submit may be of varying degrees. From beginners to moderately advanced to expert knowledge of DB2. Maybe you are a developer and you know how to do something really interesting with SQL / PL? Or maybe you are an administrator and you were dealing with a really nasty problem in DB2 but you managed to fix it?

Every experience is interesting and important to the learning process, and yet we all want to learn. Presentations are usually 45-60 minutes but we are also open for longer or shorter sessions. Presentations will remain open until 1 August 2017.

You may hesitate but we will help you!

We know that it takes time and effort to prepare a presentation, especially if you have never presented before. But that's what we're here for. Our organizers are able to help you throughout the presentation process. We can even be your sparring partner if you want. Do not be afraid to share with us your presentation ideas.

As a presenter you will have a wonderful feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment with a well-done job. It is also an excellent opportunity to improve your speaker skills, you never know when they may come in handy. Being a presenter is also a great way to get out of your business and show yourself to a broader auditorium to meet other people and be the spark that will start the discussion!

Each presenting user will receive a DB2 certification voucher!

We appreciate the time devoted to the preparation of the presentation, and every DB2 user whose presentation will be delivered on PDUG will receive a voucher entitling us to pass one of the selected Information Management (DB2) exams.

Book your time in your calendar today!

See you at the conference
