University DB2 User Groups in Mexico


Last year I visited several universities in Mexico, and I'm very glad about the progress of the DB2 on Campus program in that country. Miguel Angel Garcia Trujillo, the DB2 on Campus program manager in Mexico maybe one of the reasons why the program is becoming a successful one since my last visit. The picture in this blog item is of him with students of two DB2 User Groups.

In total there are three very active DB2 user groups in Mexico:

- UNITEC
- UNAM
- UPIICSA

These DB2 user groups have been promoting DB2 in their universities and other universities, they have helped with the translation of several DB2 documents to Spanish, and many of the students are preparing to write the DB2 Certification Exam 730 (DB2 Fundamentals). Their enthusiasm is contagious!.

I will be visiting Mexico again this year (June - July), and I will have the chance to see the members of these DB2 User Groups. They plan to write the exams prior to my visits.

Congratulations Mexico!

  3. Hola, yo asistí a una de las visitas que hizo a las Universidades de México durante el año pasado para ser mas exactos el TEC de Monterrey Campus Toluca, me he puesto en contacto con usted debido a que vamos a celebrar el XIII Simposium de Sistemas y tecnologías Computacionales y quisiéramos ver la posibilidad de que asista a nuestro evento y nos hiciera el honor de exponer sobre DB2, al parecer dejo sus datos a alguien de la escuela para ponernos en contacto con usted pero no los hemos podido obtener y navegando en la red encontré este blog. Agradeceria me diera un correo electrónico para ponerme en contacto con usted o si nos puede dar el contacto de alguien que pueda asistir a nuestro evento. Muchas gracias por su atención.
