I’ve attended the Strata conference in NYC last week. Its been many years since I’ve last attended a conference without presenting in it. I decided to attend the conference since it is considered the foremost data science conference. And I was very much interested in what those data scientists are up to. I share some of it here.
As OOW approaches. I want to re-share some of my trivia/coincidental facts about Oracle with you; some have heard this before.
This is my first Oracle OpenWorld in a few years. I have not changed (I don’t think), but the show must have grown significantly. With the huge number of acquisitions over the past few years, I am sure I will not recognize some of the solutions mentioned in many presentation billboards as I pass through all the conference venues. For any first time attendees who stumble into this post, my advice as an OOW veteran:
Isn’t that that time of the year again? Yes, it is — it’s time for our annual Oracle Bloggers Meetup and of course Oracle is piggybacking OpenWorld with the meetup again! ;)
Pythian is pleased to announce our speaking schedule at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld 2011. We’re excited to be joined by our customers Western Union, and Worldwide Technologies (WWT) as we present real-world experiences and project success.

t’s a busy summer at Pythian, with our continuing wave of speaking sessions at upcoming community and regional industry events. Coming to a city near you, watch for Pythian presenting hot Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server database topics.
This is a short blog post to let you know that there is a Oracle 11GR2 Clustering Webinar is coming this week. This session is going to be presented more in-depth at Oracle OpenWorld this year. Thank to all your votes at Oracle MIX. This webinar is kind of a bit of a pre-Oracle OpenWorld warm up :)
Here is my third installment of “The Chronicles of Yanick: Escape from Asheville” chronicling my exploits at YAPC.
As it was my very first YAPC, I stuffed my schedule as if I were a child left alone in a bakery and the talks were cakes. Consequently, I ended up booked solid from 10am to 6pm for all of the three days of the conference. Next time, I will probably go a little easier on the talks and give myself more room to attend hackatons, BOFs and whatnots. But for a first time? Walking the talks was the way to go, both to get a feeling of the conference and to take advantage of the occasion and connect all the Perl big names with their wetware implementations.
This post is addressed to all RAC SIG members who are planning to participate in the InSync11 conference this August in Sydney Australia! InSync11 is organized by Oracle Community for Oracle Community and is one of the biggest Oracle technology dedicated events in Australia and New Zealand region. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from others, listen to experts from around the world and meet face to face people from your networks (including RAC SIG).
