This is a quick blog post from Collaborate 2012 in Vegas. I’m only doing one session this year, but it’s a very long session — I’ve just done a deep dive on deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability. It’s a broad topic, and my plan was to focus a lot on basic concepts and how they work.
Many readers of these BLOG posts are seasoned attendees/presenters at this IOUG/OAUG/Quest collaborative event held every spring. User group events are one of the best stomping ground for hungry IT specialists, thirsting for news on late-breaking solutions and more traditional technologies.
Hello Friends, This is a short blog post to let you know that I am going to give my RMAN and SCAN talks to WA OUG (AUSOUG) folks in Perth next week. Here are the details:
Last week I returned to Denver, Colorado for the RMOUG Training Days conference. I had gone last year as an attendee, but this year I was invited to give my presentation on the Oracle 11g ADR (slides and info at the end of this post). While I haven’t attended very many conferences yet, I can’t imagine a bigger bang for your buck than RMOUG Training Days.
I’m traveling quite a bit in the next few weeks, here’s where you can find me…
The 2012 edition of RMOUG Training Days in Denver less than a month away, running February 15 and 16 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. . It’s not too late to register, and it’s a pretty nice excuse to get to the Rockies in ski season. I’ll be doing two presentations, and am polishing up whitepapers and presentations for the submission deadline tomorrow
This year, there were ten Pythian folks attending UKOUG Conference and we did twelve sessions including multiple presentations, masterclass, RAC Attack workshop, round-table and 10 minutes OakTalk. I think it’s the record number of session Pythian folks did at a single UKOUG conference and the record number of Pythian peeps attending. A dozen of Pythian people in Europe and now even a sales guy in the UK mean that Pythian penetration in the UK database services business is close to the infliction point. This is ultimately a good news!
I am doing RAC attack today at UKOUG as well as giving a 2-hour exert technical session at 11:25am. The show so far? Sweet!
For the final day of UKOUG there are quite a few Pythian presentations. Unfortunately a lot of them happen at the same time, so it won’t be possible to attend them all live.
On tap for Tuesday is a 2-hour master class from Michael Abbey, along with an all-day drop-in RAC attack workshop with Alex Gorbachev and the RAC SIG.
