Ember Speaking at DB2 Symposium on 16 May

Posted by

Once again this year, I’ll be speaking at the DB2 Symposium in Einhoven on 16 May! I’ll be giving a day-long intensive on DB2 Security, Performance, and a Touch of Cloud. I’ve been working hard on creating and polishing the presentation, and am quite excited to be including Jupyter Notebook topics in this presentation, in addition to the topics mentioned in the title. The full agenda looks like this:

  • DB2 Security Deep Dive
    • The basics of DB2 security
    • Standard access control
    • Fine-Grained Access Control (RCAC/FGAC)
    • Label-Based Access Control (LBAC)
    • db2audit
    • Native Encryption (including use of HADR to implement Native encryption without outage)
    • SSL Authentication
    • SSL for HADR
  • The DB2 optimizer
    • DB2 optimization
    • Understand how to gather explain information and the advantages and disadvantages of the various methods.
    • Read an explain plan
    • Using the design advisor in conventional and unusual ways
    • Collect section actuals
    • Understand some SQL tuning strategies that come out of explain data
    • Looking at the performance impact of security features
  • Jupyter Notebook and DB2
    • What is Jupyter Notebook
    • Why Jupyter Notebook
    • How to run and share Jupyter Notebooks
    • Connecting to DB2 from a Jupyter Notebook (local and cloud)
  • DB2 in the cloud
    • Cloud Concepts
    • DB2 cloud options
    • DB2 cloud security
    • DB2 cloud availability

The DB2 Symposium is a slightly different format than other conferences and educational opportunities. It provide three days, each with a different speaker with tracks for DB2 for LUW and for Z/OS. It is a fairly small group setting that allows attendees to really connect with the speaker. I have poured hundreds of hours of time into creating and polishing my presentation.

You can still sign up if you’d like to attend. There are a couple of great LUW options on 17 and 18 May as well, with top DB2 speakers – you can sign up for just one day or for multiple days.

Ember is always curious and thrives on change. Working in IT provides a lot of that change, but after 17 years developing a top-level expertise on Db2 for mid-range servers and more than 7 years blogging about it, Ember is hungry for new challenges and looks to expand her skill set to the Data Engineering role for Data Science. With in-depth SQL and RDBMS knowledge, Ember shares both posts about her core skill set and her journey into Data Science. Ember lives in Denver and work from home for XTIVIA, leading a team of Db2 DBAs.
