Well like all good things, summer is also ending and its closing days are rapidly approaching. For most of the database techies, there is nothing to get remorseful, because they are thrilled to be back in full flow managing and loving their databases. They are gearing up, refreshing up, re-evaluating and reassessing themselves and also blogging about it. This Log Buffer enjoys the last days of summer in this Log Buffer #234.
The season of conferences, webinars and seminars is coming. As the summer vacations are coming to a sumptuous and fulfilling end, the techies are getting ready towards sharpening and sharing their technical know-how with the public through the events. From MySQL to Oracle to SQL Server, the things are all set to appease your technical buds through the events. This Log Buffer contains some news about those events along with much more in this Log Buffer #233.

Just a few days ago I received a reminder email from Burke Scheld for the “AUSOUG National Conference Series – Perth 2011 – Call for Papers”. I had an event-related conversation with several Oracle guys in my professional networks and the answers I received triggered this blog post. Some of the very good Oracle professionals I personally respect said “…I am not sure what I would get out of it …” or “…I haven’t done anything exciting for the last FEW MONTHS …”. The answers I received shocked me a bit.
