I participated in a couple of bootcamps last week - one was two days and the other was an abbreviated half-day session. Feedback from the customers that attended was very positive. Its was an enjoyable time for myself - as there were many questions and the days were quite interactive.
A few new resources have become available recently to help with working with XML and pureXML:
- I have a new article up on developerWorks. This article is meant to serve as a quick reference/cheat sheet as you get up and running in writing queries for DB2 pureXML. It provides coverage of working with XQuery and SQL/XML.
- Not too long ago - the WebSphere Application Server Feature Pack for XML was released. Some articles and supporting materials to check out include an article on developerWorks as well as a RedPaper that is under development.
