This is a quick note about upcoming major events on my Oracle event calendar.

In between these events (hopefully, I’ll get to attend and/or participate in all of them), I’ll also be planning to present at some regional user group events in Charlotte (CLTOUG), Chicago (COUG), Northern California (NoCOUG) and others as time allows.

If you’re going to be at any of these events, please get in touch so we can meet up there. I’m hoping to make more time this year for attending these events and be a little less involved in them so that I can make more time for talking with individuals and/or customers. Hope to see you in the next year at one or more of these venues!

    Thanks for the dates. Collaborate ’09 was on my list of ‘to-find-out’ the day I read this. Uncanny. here’s hoping our conference and travel budgets make more sense. In your professional opinion, picking between the one’s above, which one is the best bang for buck?

    For practical, use-it-now information, I think Collaborate has the best fit. For a lot about new features, what’s coming, and lots of fun (Collaborate is fun too), OpenWorld is a great place to get that sort of stuff. For performance-focused sessions, the Hotsos Symposium is the place to be. If you can manage to convince your management, the UKOUG conference is a well-rounded, deeply technical event focused on Oracle technology. Occasionally, flights from Chicago to London are about the same cost as Chicago to San Francisco. Unfortunately, with the USD not doing so well, it isn’t the best time to visit the UK.

    Thanks for the dates, I missed all but the two last ones, but it's useful anyway…
