I’ve spent a fair amount of time writing VBScript scripts to administer Windows servers and workstations and automating repetitive tasks.

My old friend and collaborator Theo Schlossnagle at OmniTI posted his slides from his Scalable Internet Architectures talk at VelocityConf 2009.

You could hardly find anybody who presents his visionary views of the new technology trends like cloud computing, virtualization, or server consolidation with such a deep understanding of the topics.

This meetup is focused on Oracle 11g adoption. We will have one presentation followed by (or combined with) the discussion of Oracle Database 11g release, who is using it currently – what are positive and negative moments. The presentation for this meeting is “Oracle 11g New Features Out of the Box” by Alex Gorbachev. Unlike many presentations on 11g new features, we will try to focus on a more subtle enhancements and less known new features.
