When I tell my friends I’ll be going to Vegas for IBM Insight, there’s a bit of eye rolling along with a sarcastic “yeah, sounds like hard work… say hi to the blackjack dealer for me”. But while there are some fun events associated with the conference (a No Doubt concert, evening receptions, and keynotes involving Kevin Spacey and Grant Imahara from Mythbusters) it is really about the “work”, and in my case it’s helping evangelize DB2 pureScale and other great DB2 technologies (and as odd as it might seem to some, I do actually find this fun as well).
For those of you attending — or still on the fence trying to decide whether it’s worth going or not (hint: it is!) — I’d like to quickly highlight some of the pureScale-related sessions that you will be able to attend while there (among hundreds of other ones). The first two below are mine, but overall there’s a good mix of IBM speakers (giving you insight and behind the scenes info on how things work that you won’t hear anywhere else), as well as DB2 pureScale users who are going to talk about their personal experiences and how they’re using pureScale to meet their high availability, scalability, and performance demands. I’ve got them all on my own personal agenda and I’m looking forward to seeing them.
