ORADEBUG TRACE UKOUG_EVENING STATE DUMP, DAY 1

Well, this was a nice Oracle Bloggers Meetup this year. It was less crowded compare to last year which is a bit surprising if you think about it — there are more and more Oracle bloggers around. On the other hand, it let me focus more talking to participants of Oracle blogosphere and other social networking Oracle related crowd and I met quite a few new faces.

SELECT * FROM V$UKOUG WHERE DAY BETWEEN ’03-DEC-07′ and ’04-DEC-07′;

Tom Kyte’s keynote on 11g (original OOW version is here) started with a poll — out of few hundred people there were 13 that worked with Oracle 4, 2 – with Oracle 3 and no one working with Oracle version 2 (version 1 didn’t exist as we all know now). Interesting that since 1994 we had new release every year on average — impressive pace. The next session was from Tom Dale — “Virtualization in Production”, then scaling 6 node RAC cluster at CERN by Eric Grancher and Anton Topurov, my last session of the day was Joel Goodman’s — Oracle 10g: RAC Tuning Tips. I’m well rested now and it’s important as I won’t get much sleep this night and could fall asleep during my own presentation tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Getting Ready for UKOUG 07 in Birmingham

Christo Kutrovsky and me arrived in Birmingham today – just 6+ hours direct flight from Ottawa to London and two and a half hours on the bus – not too bad compare to 30+ hours travel from Melbourne to Ottawa earlier this week. I ‘m really tired now and I still need to tighten up my presentation before I can go and meet few Oracle geek at the nearest pub but I’ll probably take couple hours of sleep. Unlike some slackers I have my own preliminary agenda for the first day.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is Over

The second, and the last, day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is over. I had a quick chance to peak into Steve Lemme’s presentation on CA approach for solving an IT management dilemma. Instead of keynote and the following presentation, I paid a visit to exhibitors and spoke to practically every exhibitor. It turned out that some of them knew or heard about Pythian which was quite pleasing to hear.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne — the Start of Day Two

Regardless of my unfortunate early wake up, the day started great. I spent a couple hours reviewing and tightening up my block change tracking presentation. Unfortunately, just before the beginning I realized that one animated slide was completely screwed up and I wasn’t able to fix it on time so I apologize to the audience once again — it will be uploaded fixed. Other than that screwed up slide, the presentation went very well.

The First Day in Melbourne

I’ve got up at 6:30 today (it becomes a bad habit) because my phone started to make annoying sounds at 5:45 — it’s way too clever about meeting reminders and timezone-aware. OK. Time to move now — the second day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is about to start…

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne – My Preliminary Schedule

While I have another blog post in drafts, I should quickly update on the sessions I’m going to visit in the next two days of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne. I arrived to Melbourne today and I took Babette for a walk. This tour deserve a separate entry so I postpone it until I have more time to empty my camera and sort it out so back to the schedule…
