For those of you attending UKOUG today, there is a healthy dose of Pythian presentations on tap this afternoon. Actually, you can do it wall to wall 2:30pm to 6:30pm if you like.
Off to the UKOUG general session then a fun-filled day of presentations. It wraps up later this afternoon with my rman best practices event at 5:45pm.
My good friend (and personal hero) Cary Millsap is doing a series of one day classes around the world — Mastering Oracle Trace Data. One of them is conveniently scheduled in Birmingham Thursday next week right after the UKOUG Conference.
anticipate seeing people from all over the continent at UKOUG. The attendance over the past few years has been growing and nothing short of astounding. I am giving two papers at the show … one on a dear friend of us all called rman and the other on a close second … the physical standby. For me, even in the midst of emerging technology solutions, there’s still nothing like the old-fashioned Oracle CORE database arena.
I returned from AUSOUG conference in Perth (Australia) just last week. This blog is my report from the conference for the days 0 and 1.
The presentation deadline for UKOUG is 8 days away. I have been madly preparing for 2 presentations, one on my best friend (rman) and the other on my co-best friend (the physical standby). Both of these topics have been perennial favourites for me and many of my attendees. I find with both of these items, there is always something more to learn.
If you haven’t considered attending the AUSOUG conference in Perth yet, you definitely should! Out of 50 sessions I counted 21 to be presented by Oracle ACEs and Oracle ACE Directors; 8 by Oracle employees and at least 2 by Oracle Certified Masters! Briefly looking though the conference program I would like to suggest that you consider sessions from the following speakers.
‘m going to be presenting two of my OOW11 sessions at the Toronto Oracle User Group’s DD Day. I’m going to be presenting two sessions, Is Oracle Exadata for You? Starring Roles for the Best Technology, and Under the Hood of Oracle ASM: Failability Analysis.
I was in Melbourne presenting two of my papers for Australian Oracle User Group Victorian members. I received a very warm welcome in that beautiful city. it was my pleasure to meet several Oracle DBAs and present for AUSOUG members. 25 people took part in the meeting! I should say that it was one of the best audiences I have presented for over the last few months! I received several good questions and we have a very good follow up discussion.
When I found out that NoCOUG had accepted my abstract, “Oracle 11g: Learning to Love the ADR”, I was both ecstatic and terrified. This meant that I actually had to prepare the presentation and speak in front of peers. Surely they would throw me into San Francisco Bay if I didn’t bring my A-game, so I set out to do just that.
