RMOUG10 — Do Sharks Eat Oracle ACE’s?

Posted in: Technical Track

RMOUG Training Days 2010 are in the full swing today with the University classes ongoing and that’s also the day most of my friends arriving here at Hyatt and when all the fun begins. Now that my stomach is full and Debra is off to her hotel room and Lisa is sleeping, I can finally do a quick blog post.

The flight Ottawa-Denver was quite enjoyable as it’s one of the rare direct flights from Ottawa. RMOUG volunteers pick up their guest speakers personally, which is a very nice touch, and with all this my travel to Denver feels just like a short drive to work. And that’s important if you know what we are up for tonight…

Few Oracle ACEs divers are going to jump into the pool with sharks at Denver Aquarium and show them who’s the boss. I’ll pretend to be a diving ACE as well (sh-h-h-h… don’t tell anybody I’m not). Unfortunately, it does mean that we will be late to the RMOUG speakers reception but we have to sacrifice something.

I’m sure you are dying to know what happens to us and if anybody gets eaten. If so, join us tomorrow, Wednesday 17-Feb, at the Denver Convention Center at the Oracle ACEs and ACE Directors Breakfast at 7:50am. This is your chance to ask any questions you want and get honest answers on anything from Oracle databases and Fusion Apps to diving with sharks and anything in between.

Also consider dropping by the OakTable / Apress booth to have a more private conversation with members of the OakTable Network. Traditional OakTable Challenge begins again tomorrow so if you think you have a tricky question around Oracle databases — by all means let us know. You can also tweet it using #oakrmoug. This is also a chance to get your book Expert Oracle Practices: Oracle Database Administration from the Oak Table signed by number of authors that attend the conference.
