Forget ‘Strictly..’, forget ‘I’m A Celebrity..’ – the renowned ‘DB2′s Got Talent’ Contest is returning for its third year! Once again DBI, one of Triton’s software partners, are searching for real talent in the world of DB2. We are thrilled to be sponsoring the event, as we did last year, and we’re eager to encourage anyone in the DB2 user community to take part.
The goal of the event is for DB2 users to share their experiences from the past year – tell us about your successes, but also challenges you’ve faced along the way. Whether your project was relating to Load Utilities, Concurrent I/Os, Table Partitioning, or anything else DB2 related, we want to hear from you. Plus, there are some amazing prizes to be won, with the overall winner being rewarded with an IDUG Conference Registration to any IDUG Conference in 2013, alongside $1,500 travel expenses. The approximate value of this prize is £2,100, not to be sneezed at!
The complete list of prizes is as follows:
1st Prize: One FREE IDUG Conference Registration to any IDUG Conference in 2013 (North America, Europe or Australia) provided by IDUG, plus up to $1,500 USD travel expense allowance provided by DBI.
2nd Prize: One FREE DB2 Symposium Registration (3 days) to any Event in 2013 provided by KBCE, plus up to $1,000 USD travel expense allowance provided by HLS Technologies.
3rd Prize: Apple iPad (approximate value $500) provided by Responsive Systems.
Finalist Prizes: Each of the top 10 contestants invited by the judges to participate in Finals Shows will win $50 Amazon.com Gift Certificates, provided by ourselves, Triton Consulting.
Open to both DB2 LUW and z/OS users, the contest will be judged on 5th April 2013. Read all about the competition and how to enter just by clicking here.
