Are you an Oracle blogger attending Oracle Open World 2009? If so, you are invited to attend this Oracle Bloggers Meetup during OOW 2009 — a chance to meet your online buddies face-to-face in relaxed and informal atmosphere. Details here.
In record time, less than a week after the conference, all 11 videos that were taken at OpenSQLCamp Europe are online, for those who missed the sessions, or just want to relive the fun! The YouTube videos have the descriptions and resources from the official conference pages, and links to pages. If there is more information to add (for example, the slides from a talk are now online), or if you spot an error, please feel free to add a comment on the YouTube video, or as a comment to this blog post.
Here are all the videos from the 2009 MySQL Conference and 2009 MySQL Camp:
OpenSQLCamp 2009 is happening “in parallel to the Free and Open Source Conference 2009 (FrOSCon) on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd August in St. Augustin, Germany …. close to Bonn and Cologne.” I plan on being at FrOSCon and OpenSQLCamp. Where I go before and after that is up to *you*. Yes, that is right, perhaps I will visit a user group, such as France’s MySQL User Group. Or perhaps your company needs the type of services Pythian can offer — we can do the “traditional consulting” model where we look over your systems for performance tuning and security gains, or fix problems in an emergency
The topic for this meetup is quite exciting – Oracle Exadata and everything about it. David Centellas, Senior Database Consultant from Oracle will do technical presentation on Exadata and, after the break, we will have a open forum discussion where two Oracle’s Enterprise Architects, Tim Rubin and Chris Jones, will answer our questions and share thir real-world experience.
This year, the International Free Software Forum celebrated its 10th anniversary. It happened last week in Porto Alegre. Pythian presented a session on Thursday called 8 Rules for Designing More Secure Applications with MySQL. As promised, here are the slides we used on that session: 8 Simple Rules to Design Secure Apps with MySQL.
We will start with an overview of the AQ technology in Oracle database – what it is and what it let you do. Then we will see how it’s used in Oracle E-Business Suite and how to manage it. Our speakers for the evening are your fellow SOM members – Jurijs Velikanovs and Warwick Sands. TBC.
This meetup will be focused on storage technologies for Oracle database. It looks like a short presentation on Oracle Automatic Storage Management is in order – quite a few people are missing the concepts of the Oracle flagman storage storage solution and it’s useful to understand the approach whether you use it now or not.
I think it was the smallest group so far which is not surprising considering that Monday has been the least popular day in our internal poll. We had a tad less than 20 people but very good size for the informal discussion of Oracle 11g adoption that took place at the second half of the meetup.
More than a month has passed since Sydney Oracle Meetup #2. We shot some video, but it took me a while to process it and publish a few interesting pieces, but I finally got it all. Have a look.
