Baltimore / Washington DB2 Users Group
About us

BWDB2UG was founded as a "gathering" point for computer professionals within the Baltimore/Washington commuting area to discuss and share ideas on DB2 topics. The group is comprised of DB2 users on all platforms with a common desire to become more proficient in this comprehensive database management technology.

Meetings are held quarterly and feature leading speakers from the field and BWDB2UG members discussing personal experiences with DB2. The meetings provide a chance to learn how to use DB2 more effectively and give insights into projects at other businesses.

Learning from others is only one advantage of becoming a part of BWDB2UG. In addition, you have the opportunity to share your own experiences and help your fellow professionals. The entire group benefits from the active participation of its members. Together, everyone wins.
