Session title: A RESTful Approach to Using Db2

Session abstract:

Modern application development paradigms need to be able to connect from a variety of devices to back-end databases. The use of native database drivers or frameworks are not always practical on mobile devices especially when there is a requirement to install drivers locally on the device.

RESTful APIs provide an elegant way for applications to connect to databases without the need of drivers. This session will cover the current RESTful support in Db2 on a distributed platform and demonstrate how applications can be built using these APIs.

If time permits, George will introduce Click to Containerize Db2.  He will provide a brief overview on how you can quickly move you on premise Db2 databases to OpenShift and Cloud Pak for Data to accelerate your Private and Hybrid/Multi-Cloud initiatives.
