DB2 training for DB2 10.5 on Windows

DB2 10.5 on Windows

My department actually has some training budget for the upcoming year and I have been asked to submit some thoughts on what would be beneficial for me to attend.  I was looking at IDUG but it looks like it is geared towards z/OS and not windows (I did not see a single subject with windows mentioned in the description for this years IDUG).

Does anyone know of any good conferences or seminars that would be good for a SQL Server DBA who is now working with DB2 10.5 on Windows?  Maybe something near a beach?

Thank you!

The IBM Professional Certification Program offers the DB2 10.5 Fundamentals for LUW (Linux, Unix and Windows) course which is a good starting point.

If all of this is too basic then there is also an advanced course.

IDUG is geared towards DB2 on all platforms including Windows and everything that relates to DB2. :)

On a typical IDUG conference there are tracks dedicated DB2 on Z/OS as well as DB2 LUW (and iSeries). Also tracks concerning development on DB2 as well as administration. And general tracks as well covering everything else related to DB2. Also you get a chance to earn a IBM Professional Certificate for free while attending a conference. This is a great place to network with DB2 fellows and ask questions related to the challenges/problems you are engaged in. :)
Also the IDUG website as many useful resources that you can profit by.  
I have been IDUG member since 2010 and speaker on several NA conferences and I have learned a great deal by using the IDUG website and attend the conferences. I work with DB2 on z/OS, AIX, Linux and Windows.

Thanks for the suggestion, I have been a member since March 2018.  I like the site but it seems that most of it is geared to UNIX and Mainframe.  When I look for an topic, 95% of the posts are not for LUW.  I wish they would add tags so I could just search for LUW articles and examples.

I am trying to get my boss to send me to an IDUG conference but training budget is normally used for coffee supplies around here.  :)

Thanks again!
