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.
You can still sign up if you’d like to attend. There are a couple of great LUW options on 10 June as well – you can sign up for just one day or for multiple days.
