Educational Seminar Details

September 15: "DBA Things a Programmer Should Know and Vice Versa"

There are times when DBA issues and Developer issues overlap. What does the DBA know that a Developer should know. And how can this knowledge be used to make designing and writing programs easier? What DDL parameters impact program design and data integrity? And what DB2 roadblocks exist that can make the most perfect program perform poorly? These questions and more will be answered. The session will include new Version 8 material.
