Workshops will take place coding complex queries to drive the logic in these areas home. Workshops build in this area where you will eventually see 3,4,5 different ways to code and get the same results. Material is always taught with a slant on performance. Class continues learning the native SQL-PL language and how to code, deploy, and test stored procedures. Best practices in all areas of this language are covered. And finally learn what makes queries, programs, and applications run too long. Every developer and DBA should know how to read and analyze a Db2 explain, and the IBM Data Studio tool does a great job at visualizing the explain output.
