COLLABORATE is all about quality and content, presenters elaborating based on their specific areas(s) or expertise. The show may be elaborate, but “show” is secondary to education. A handful of tier 1 shows throughout the calendar year do just that … primary focus is on the user community, the people who live the software from day-to-day.
Many readers of these BLOG posts are seasoned attendees/presenters at this IOUG/OAUG/Quest collaborative event held every spring. User group events are the one of the best stomping ground for hungry IT specialists, thirsting for news on late-breaking solutions and more traditional technologies.

I am doing RAC attack today at UKOUG as well as giving a 2-hour exert technical session at 11:25am. The show so far? Sweet!

Both of these topics have been perennial favourites for me and many of my attendees. I find with both of these items, there is always something more to learn.
Pythian’s presence at OOW each year permits this fine company, of which I have been a part for a total of close to 8 years, to get higher on Oracle’s and the industry in general’s radar. There are so many differentiators that separate Pythian from other companies. Take homes from OOW?
