I’m in final preparation for next week’s conference and I think I’ve got my schedule nailed down…mostly. I’m very excited about the ODTUG Development DBA SIG (which I chair) meeting where we’ll be holding an expert panel discussion. Despite my last-minute planning, I managed to snag some great panelists:

  • Lewis Cunningham, PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Eric Evans, Hotsos
  • Sue Harper, Oracle
  • Cary Millsap, Hotsos

I’ll be attempting to moderate the panel and make sure we get through as many audience questions as possible. This session will be on Tuesday at 5:30pm in Coquina A. This is definitely a rare opportunity to pitch your questions at this great collection of talented DBA-type people.

Additionally, ODTUG got my two sessions scheduled as well. I’m giving these two sessions during the week:

  • Tues, 4:15pm: High Availability Options for Oracle Database
  • Thurs, 9:45am: RAC for Beginners: The Basics

These are both sessions I’ve given previously, but repeat customers will get them at 50% off! :) Please come by and stick around to introduce yourself if you can make time in your conference schedule. I’ll also be trying to attend some of the sessions my friends Matt Topper and Shaun O’Brien are giving.

I love the ODTUG conference because it is small enough that you see the same people several times during the week. If you see me during the week, please say something so I know that someone reads my ramblings :).

See you next week–hopefully, I’ll get time to post a few times from the bar that is, conference.
