I will be speaking at the Twin Cities Oracle Users Group 2011 Winter Meeting. It’s the first time I’m speaking for this user group so I’m excited to meet the new audience. I will present one hour version of my Grid Infrastructure Internals session. Of course, no demos during presentation as it’s just enough to cover the theory slides but I’ll leave the demo as a homework as usual. :)

North California Oracle User Group are planning their 2011 conferences and are looking for good presentations!

Anyway here are some highlights from the last day and a half…
The highlight of Monday night was Doug Burns shaving ceremony and finalizing it at Tap & Spile. I have captured some videos but they need some post-processing before I can publish them. Another highlight was watching photos of previous UKOUG conferences I attended.
Blogging from the Speaker Ready room which is now suited on the balcony overlooking the exhibition. I must say that I like the new location. Not only it is closer to the action, but allows you to oversee who is hanging out over the exhibitors. There’s been a number of interesting sessions, but it’s little things here and there that I learn that provide some real value. Here’s a few examples
After an inauspicious start, my 7th visit to Birmingham for the UKOUG Conference is in full swing. As in the past, the quality of the presentations is outstanding and the biggest challenge to the attendee is to decide which of the 3 concurrent sessions to attend.
For those of you in the New York City area, I’ll be speaking at the NYOUG joint BI/DW and Web SIG meeting. The topic will be a case study of Pythian’s Exadata implementation at LinkShare.
