IBM will host a Db2 for z/OS: REST and Hybrid Cloud Virtual
Wildfire Workshop February 20 – 21, 2023.

This no-charge workshop enables customers to gain an understanding of how to leverage Db2 Native REST services in a hybrid cloud environment using RESTful APIs. Attendees will be provided with a cloud-based virtual lab environment to learn how quickly and easily RESTful APIs can be created using z/OS Connect and mapped to Db2 Native REST services.

The audience is architects, database administrators, application developers, and other decision influencers interested in creating RESTful APIs using Db2 for z/OS SQL statements and stored procedures.
