I've taken it upon myself to put up our team's first blog posting, and to tell you a little about our team, and what we hope to do here.
The DB2 Express-C product is IBM's Information Management foray into releasing a freely distributable, freely downloadable version of the industry leading DB2 database program. The three of us who'll be posting here are the members of a new team leading the efforts to develop and nuture the development community around this new product. Our names are Ryan Chase, Raul Chong, and me, Ian Hakes (conveniently, my name comes last both grammatically and alphabetically).
What we're looking to do in this blog is to provide a bit of an informal means of keeping you informed about the news, events and highlights of the DB2 Express-C community. Eventually, we'll tack on an RSS feed, so your aggregator can keep you informed about the latest and greatest.
Don't forget to visit our home page, or our downloads page, or visit the developerWorks hosted support forum if you have any questions (links are available over there on your right hand side). Or, if you feel like just posting a comment here to one of our blog posts, by all means go ahead, though be advised that we won't be answering any support or product release questions in this space. You'll have to go to the more official channels for that.
Thanks for visiting, and we're all looking forward to a long and prosperous trip with every one of you out there!
Cheers for now.
