SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2012 DB2 and XML

Since DB2 version 9 we have the possibility to store XML natively in DB2 tables. It’s really cool, it’s really powerful… BUT how do you start? What are your options? Do my developers know how to deal with this? Does my DBA speak, Xpath, Xquery or am I looking at Xtra problems?
This presentation will start from the very basics and will explain both to developers as DBAs the possibilities, functionalities filled with working examples, that you can take home and start playing around with.

SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2011 My personal favorite V9 and V10 features

Every release has its buzz words; sometimes those features are truly amazing, sometimes not so much. In a world of blogs and twitter, this is my take on “what’s hot and what’s not” within DB2 V9 and DB2 V10. We’ll be talking about XML, not logged, native stored procedures, hashing, new security features and much more.

SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2011 To log or to lose

For DB2 the log is crucial, critical, and vital even, but how much do you really know about it? You might know about undo and redo statements, but did you know DB2 can startup without its directory but not without its log? How does DB2 use its log during startup and shutdown? When are records forced to the log? For which objects will the log contain all recovery information? If you want to know the answer to these and many other log related topics, come to this session and we’ll demystify the log. It will show the importance and the power within the log. Almost everything is in the log, for you to use, but you have to be aware of it. This session will make you appreciate the DB2 log more and make you understand why it is so critical. Either you log or you lose.

SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2009 Practical SQL performance tuning, for developers and DBA’s

17 June 2009
10:00 - 11:00
SQLAdria Seminar – Dubrovnik 2009 Practical SQL performance tuning, for developers and DBA’s

Objectives:
Understand the basic rules of writing performing SQL

Outline:
To index or not to index
Access paths explained
Predicate solving when and how
Suboptimal coding and their improvements
Other easy to use CPU saving techniques
Mips and money

Full Abstract:
This presentation is a PRACTICAL, HANDS ON way to SQL performance tuning and SQL improvement. When logically correct SQL will always return and answer, the statement might be expensive or cheap but is quite often suboptimal. This presentation will explain the ground rules to writing performing SQL and has numerous EASY-TO-FIX, REAL LIFE improvements. If you are a developer or a beginning DBA, you’ll gain an understanding to better SQL writing and tuning. If you are a more experienced DBA you’ll get a thorough refresh, learn something new and walk a way with an idea of “how to explain SQL to your developers”.
