Collaborate 2006 Presentations

Posted in: Technical Track

Well I have been back from Collaborate 2006 for over a week now and decided that I should also make my presentation available from the Pythian web site. While there I participated in three sessions. I joined Michael Abbey, Ian Abramson, and Carl Dudley on a panel for the Non-Oracle DBA.

My first presentation was PostgreSQL for the Oracle DBA. Although the crowd was small at the presentation itself, there was lots of interaction with the attendees. I was pleasantly surprised to find that almost everyone attending the session had experience in Oracle, PostgreSQL AND Mysql. It certainly attests to the growing popularity of non-proprietary databases.

My second solo-presentation was Oracle 10g Data Pump 101.  There were many many presentations on Oracle Data Pump at Collaborate 2006, from 30 minute mini-sessions to 2 hour in-depth sessions. My presentation was on day three of the conference and I was pleasantly surprised that the room was nearly full for my technical session. It was a good beginner overview of Data Pump followed by a live demo. As with most live demos, we hit a small snag but overall the presentation went well.

Enjoy the slides and if you have any questions on either of these topics, feel free to contact me via email.
