DB2 on Campus at YorkU

On April 22nd, Dan Han, the first DB2 Student Ambassador at York University, organized the first ever, DB2 on Campus event at YorkU.

Over 70 YorkU students from Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and IT programs attended the event to learn about the DB2 on Campus program and to help grow the DB2 community. Also, everyone in attendance requested to be contacted about additional DB2 resources, DB2 certifications, and future DB2 events!

Our featured DB2 on Campus Quarterly Newsletter and DB2 Best Practice flyers were picked up faster than free food! We also handed out DB2 9.5 Discovery Kit DVDs, some free t-shirts, and Raul donated a copy of his book, Understanding DB2: Learning Visually with Examples, to the YorkU Library.

Special thanks to the presenters, Raul Chong, Dan Han, and Ali Khan. Special thanks also to Amyris Rada for fielding the multitude of questions from students, and to Harsimran Singh, Ali Khan, and Raeid Saqur - York interns and Club Presidents for helping Dan organize this event.

Feel free to join the DB2 in YorkU group on channelDB2 to keep up with DB2 on Campus initiatives at YorkU, or if you want to contact the YorkU DB2 Student Ambassadors.

Cheers! Agatha/Dan
