I was at the Share conference this week in Anaheim. Share is, as always, what I consider to be the premier user-driven mainframe and z/OS event. There were a lot of very good technical sessions this week.
The themes of the conference included some items that have been covered before, such as cloud, z/OS 2.1, and security. There was also a focus on analytics, with quite a few good sessions in that area.
Starting out the week there was a good session on IMS V13. There was also a DB2 11 for z/OS Overview.

At Share I presented on "Become an OMEGAMON Power User". In case you missed my webcast from last year on the topic, here's a link to the presentation:
