I can only comment so much on technology announcements. However, as the maestro Pythian’s team of 18 at the show this year, I can comment on how to get the most out of your OOW participation & experience.
Many database administrators who are hungry for CORE database sessions at Oracle Open World need to look far and go out of their way to resister early for presentations in this discipline. Database administration, in some circles, is looked upon as a “dying” role as vendors automate and encapsulate CORE support activities into the likes of ASH, Cloud Control and some other high-end management assistants. The fact remains … regardless of what we are told, the strong CORE database skills are here to stay and a demand for education on this topic is not going anywhere quickly.
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?
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:
Thank you to all who attended our Open House last night to help us celebrate Pythian’s 15th Anniversary. It was a great night! Thank you to all those who helped make it happen. Check out a few highlights from the evening:
Pythian is pleased to announce our speaking schedule at this year’s Oracle Open World 2012! Here are the speaking sessions that we will be participating in, including one session that we will be co-presenting with our friends at Harvard Business Publishing.
This Australian conference represents the climax of Technology, Development and Applications users in one go. As icing on the cake, mobile technology and telecommunication will also feature during this scintillating saga of expertise and sharing of knowledge. Where there is mentionable database talk, there is Pythian. I will be presenting two sessions at the Insync12 this year, both about Exadata, a technology closer to my heart.
HOPE Volleyball Summerfest (Helping Other People Everywhere, Ottawa-Carleton Inc) celebrated 30 years of fun for a cause this year. The charity has donated more than $3.5 million to over 110 charities since it began. Here are a few highlights from Team Pythian, at HOPE on July 14th. It was a great day!
My impressions: being the first time that these kind of conferences were done in Argentina I have to say it was great, small but great. No many people knew about the event and even that the response was pretty good. It was a 3 day event with plenty of technical talks and some others talks coming from Companies who wanted to share experiences and impressions on what is coming for MySQL technologies.
