I would have liked to see something a little more hands-on since this was a tutorial day. It was OK.

Being new to the IBM i platform and to DB2 I didn't know what to expect but received exactly what I had hoped. This tutorial provided a lot of history about the platform and a bunch of nomenclature comparisons to what I am familiar with in the Linux world. This was my first time meeting Alan and he seems like a very patient, and curious person which, in my opinion, is exactly what makes a good expert.
