I’ve been attending OOW every year since I moved to San Francisco in 2007. I always enjoy the event – great speakers, parties, crowds, meeting old friends, hearing new product announcement. I like the excitement. This year the event is particularly exciting for me: For the first time, I’m attending as a speaker and not just as attendee. I’ll be speaking quite a bit actually, on rather diverse list of topics. Here’s what my week look’s like?
Here are a few suggestions to maximize your time at OOW and allow you to get as much bang for your education (and entertainment) dollar as possible:
Along comes the Oracle RAC Special Interest Group (SIG) which is appearing at a conference near you. At Oracle Open World 2012, RAC SIG personnel will be on-hand running RAC Attack – a hands-on lab where you can build a cluster on your Windows, MAC, or Linux personal computer. This is a dream come true. I first did RAC Attack at the UKOUG show in Birmingham last December. I am not anywhere close to being a RAC expert but I have rolled my sleeves up and got into the technology. Do not miss this opportunity at Oracle Open World next week in San Francisco
Every time I have had the pleasure of attending Oracle Open World, I have discovered a plethora of technical heavy-weights from all over the world in attendance. I enjoy meeting and shmoozing with these people almost as much as absorbing the technical content of the show itself. Many of my Pythian colleagues are presenting at OOW12 and thereby making this fine company AND themselves more renowned in the Oracle tech arena:
There’s a known bug, 7306820 “ORA-7445 [krhahw] / ORA-27090 during file header read. Instance may crash”, but this bug is fixed in 188.8.131.52, and this database is running 184.108.40.206. And on top of that, it’s an Exadata system, so I/O to storage servers goes over the InfiniBand network rather than using async I/O (AIO) calls.
With the summer approaching in Australia and Winter making inroads in Canada, the contrasts are also vivid in the blog posts of Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL. Relishing this distinguished medley, Log Buffer Edition is blossoming with new blog posts in Log Buffer #286.
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading IOUG community. One of the area the user group is pursuing all the time is finding the new speakers and that takes some part of convincing the community members to actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
If the basics are right, then the foundation is more likely to be solid, and the growth on that foundation is almost sure to follow the progressive path. Bloggers of Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL are striving hard to set the basics right of the technology in order to help laying a sound foundation for the readers, so that they can grow leaps and bounds in the right direction. This Log Buffer Edition, in Log Buffer #285 covers just that.
This Log Buffer Edition is encompassing various blogs across Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL arena. Enjoy the Log Buffer #284.
MySQL management plugin for EM 12c has been long overdue. I’ve initially migrated the older plugin to EM 12c about 6 months ago and few dozen people received this as initial beta of the plugin. It worked OK but didn’t use any of the 12c new features and its home page was a bit of a mess in the EM 12c Cloud Control web interface.
