A mere 5,018 minutes until the festivities start at the 2012 version of the UKOUG User Group Conference. The show is intense and hugely educational with some of the world’s finest in attendance and presenting. For us Pythian’ites the trek terminates on Wednesday evening with British football’s Manchester United. Keep a close eye out for RACAttack above the vendor forum. Pythian’s own Alex Gorbachev and others will help you attack the RAC. Not to be missed.

Perth is far from everywhere, but not far from the Oracle technologies. Passion, knowledge, and urge to share the experience, skills, tips and knowledge brought people from across the planet to gather under one roof and learn, educate and network under the banner of Oracle with 20:20 Foresight.
There is a very strong Oracle Community in Perth, Australia. I admire many Perth based Oracle User Group volunteers who year from your organizing a great Oracle event. This year it isn’t an exception. I just spent 30 minutes going through the program and I should say the lineup of speakers is very impressive. Here’s the schedule.
This year’ OOW was even more amazing for me. For the first time I presented at OpenWorld.It is great to see how many people now share my interest in integrating Hadoop into the enterprise data warehouse eco-system. To those who missed my presentations and to those who attended and want to review the slides, you can find the content here.
Pythian remained active in the core orbit of Oracle Open World 2012. Its presenters, bloggers, tweeters, managers, marketing, and rest of the people rocked the stage and backstage. This blog post shares some moments from this year’s Oracle’s mega blockbuster conference.
If you are into the social media and a database professional, you are sure to know that Pythian is really passionate about the bloggers of database technology. Pythian has been carrying the torch of Bloggers Meetup tradition at the Oracle Open World, and has done it again this year in San Francisco’s Jillian opposite the Moscone West.

Tuesday morning at OOW is always occupied by this forum, an opportunity for authors and other persons to receive heads up on what’s coming down the pipe from Oracle. The following notes are musings from yours truly as I attended the forum today.
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading the IOUG community. One of the areas the user group is pursuing all the time is finding new speakers, and it takes a lot of convincing before community members actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
