My Failure, Success and Great Experience at Oracle OpenWorld 2011

A bit more than a week passed since most of us who been part of the OpenWorld are back from San Francisco. It is about time to start sharing stories on how it went for each of us. I must admit that it happened to be a very stressful OpenWorld for me personally. I am recovering from it slowly. On the positive side I met so many great people, discovered how supportive people are and how great is to be a part of the Pythian Team! Let’s talk about how my 2 presentations went at Oracle OpenWorld 2011.

How Oracle Has Done Nothing to Change MySQL

Oracle Open World Has Been Just That

After the first day and a half, the show has yet again lived up to all expectations. Oracle has been around for over two decades and this well-oiled machine excels at everything it does … OOW 2011 being a living/breathing example.
