Have you ever wished you had a safe place to play with Db2 and learn about some of its best new features? Well now you can. IBMers and Partners can request a Db2 Modernization virtual environment and start learning in minutes. If you are an IBM client, just reach out to an IBMer or one of our business Partners. They can request an environment for you. All you need is a browser to access the environment.
You get access to a virtual machine with 8 cores, 16GB of memory and 200 GB of storage. The machine is preinstalled with Linux, the latest Db2, Jupyter, Python, the Db2 Console and the Db2 RESTful Endpoint.
Hands-on labs are included so you can learn about:
- Db2 and Machine Learning
- The latest Db2 Console, including extensive examples of using the Db2 Console REST APIs
- The Db2 RESTful Endpoint Service
- Db2 and JSON
Once you are done with the labs you are free to experiment with the extensive sample Python code. The sample code is also available on GITHUB so you can apply everything you learned to your own projects. There are even reusable Python classes that make using the RESTful Endpoint APIs and Db2 Console APIs easy to use with just a few lines of code.
