One of the problems with having a presentation with a topical title is that you keep having to update the darned thing. 🙂
“Memory Matters in 2007” is a case in point. It’s morphed over the years from two presentations: “Central Storage Performance” and “Expanded Storage Performance” (the latter of which eventually became obsolete) to a presentation that covered OS/390 real memory, DFSORT and DB2 virtual storage, to the current “Memory Matters in 2007” which covers z/OS real memory and a bunch of subsystems (CICS, MQ, DB2, DFSORT, IMS and Websphere Application Server).
Now I’ve been asked twice to present the same topics but fast-forwarded to “Memory Matters in 2008” – when we’re still in 2007.
I suppose I could call it “Memory Will Matter in 2008″ but that rather spoils the pun. (I do wonder how many of my audience in München got the pun.) 🙂
So anyhow, I’m going to update most of the sections to cover eg DB2 Version 9 and CICS TS 3.2. Just a little sooner than I’d anticipated. 😦
The second outing for the ’08 model will be at the UK GSE Conference October 30-31. This is at Chesford Grange, near Leamington. (Haven’t I been here before?) 🙂
What I might try and do is post new foils (or at any rate sketches of them) here and see how people react.
And I suppose my manager will want me to podcast this. 🙂 I wonder where to host such a thing.
