Alex Gorbachev @ RAC Attack! in Chicago

Posted in: Technical Track

Just a quick note that I’m going to present two sessions on the RAC Attack! event in Chicago next week — 4-5 August 2008. The event is organized as two threads — one for advanced RAC DBA’s and another one for beginners. Each thread will have one day of hands-on labs and one day of lectures. Another option would be to choose two days of lectures. More details on the RAC Attack event home page.

I’ll be presenting on both days. The beginner’s presentation will be “Under the Hood of Oracle Clusterware” and the more advanced session is called “Connections! Connections! Connections!”. Now, I’m terribly busy preparing for it — working on the slides (yes, I started earlier than some might expect…) and setting up the live demo.

RAC Attack is organized by IOUG and RAC SIG and, as far as I know, the attendance will pretty good but there are still few places left so you have a chance to register.

What’s for me? Great opportunity to catch up with few old friends and, hopefully, meet some new ones. In addition, I have never been to Chicago so it’s something I really keen to experience while I have a chance.

I’m looking forward to having you at the event and also seeing your presentations! I think this will be a great event and I hope we can arrange for you to see a few local Chicago watering holes too :). Travel safe, see you on Monday!

Dan, I’m arriving at 4:03 on Sunday. Any tips on what to see for the rest of the day and, perhaps, take few shots (good opportunity to test my new Nikon D80)?

On the other hand, consuming few shots sounds just as good. :)
