December 18th, 2014 Comments off
As we approach the end of 2014 and look forward to next year, I want to encourage you to take stock of your knowledge and skill as it pertains to DB2 for i and data centric design and programming.

Your value, to employers, clients, partners, and colleagues will diminish over time unless you "sharpen the saw".

To that end, I want to call your attention to a couple public classes we are offering in Rochester, Minnesota (aka: the home office).

2015, February 17-19 

Skills taught


_________


DB2 for i SQL Performance Monitoring, Analysis and Tuning

If you need more detail on what the respective classes cover, or why the knowledge and skill are critical success factors in the world of database engineering, please contact me. And if you want to explore a private and/or customized session, we can assist there as well.
