Day 2 of COLLABORATE and no distractions like hockey to tend with today. I have seen a nice balance between new technology and the traditional offerings in the Oracle tech space. These user group shows, in some ways, are the bastion of the technologies which, as “old” as they may be, are still in use and of interest to many attendees.
Whilst we all embark on this magical journey called “COLLABORATE”, keep in the back of your mind what this conference is all about. This event is driven by volunteers … 100% in their spare time; logging hundreds of hours altogether to make your experience as education-centric as possible. It is a powerful way to spend your volunteer time-working alongside others with the single goal of making the event as worthwhile for the attendees as possible.
Quick blog post from Collaborate 2012 in Vegas. I’m only doing one session this year but it’s a very long session — I’ve just done a deel dive on deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability. It’s a broad topic and my plan was to focus a lot on basic concepts and how they are working.
Log Buffer Editions are marching along, and this Log Buffer #268 is once again all about Oracle, MySQL, and SQLServer plus some peeks at some of other glittering database technologies like PostgreSQL and DB2. Sit back and enjoy.
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.
It seems like yesterday that the blogs appeared. Over the years they have proved to be of much value for the technical and not-so-technical masses. The big boom in this social media outlet has enabled unprecedented sharing of ideas for the database professionals. The nature of databases and the blogging is to always be changing, but Log Buffer Edition stays, and here is the Log Buffer #267.
The purpose of technology is the make the life easier and more quality oriented. It is this virtue of technology which makes it evergreen and sustainable. The unique feature of technology is its innovative nature. Technology blogging is a way for the technologists to rant about technology and throw light at known and unknown corners with new angles. This Log Buffer Edition covers those angles in Log Buffer #266.
It’s that time of the year again…. Collaborate time: the world’s only user-driven, user-run Oracle conference. From April 22 to 26th, thousands of Oracle professionals are heading to Las Vegas for a week’s worth of presentations, education sessions, networking opportunities and who knows what else (it’s Vegas, after all!). Here is what we have planned for Collaborate 12:
Weathers are changing, clocks are being adjusted too, and the changes at the technological fronts are as usual rapid, frequent and over-whelming. Keeping up with such rapid-fire changes is a project in itself. In database triangle of Oracle, MySQL, and SQL Server; patches, updates, features, tricks, and tips are booming and so is this Log Buffer Edition, which is Log Buffer #265.
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.
