On this blog I devote a lot of ink to things that are free. With this whole day virtual event (click here to register), not only do you get a day full of education for free, you also get $35 in Amazon Web Services credits to practice everything you learned. You attend free classes and get paid; it is a great deal.
October 1 is going to be a great day for anyone who is looking to jump start their skills to build Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings. Hear why selecting a combination of industry-leading IBM software running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows you to focus all your resources on innovation instead of infrastructure.If you can’t make it to the live event on October 1, don’t worry session replays will be available but you should register.

Be sure to register for and attend the DB2 session at noon – 1pm Eastern Daylight Time where Mark Wilding and I (Leon Katsnelson) will talk about a set of capabilities that are unique to DB2 and make it the best database for use on the Cloud. You will get pointers on everything you need to get started with DB2 on Amazon EC2 cloud and you will have $35 credit from Amazon to actually make it happen. If $35 does not sound like much, consider that you can have DB2 running on Amazon EC2 for as little as 10 cents per hour.
