Blink and 3 weeks goes by and I forgot to blog any new updates!

I’ve got a few new entries that will be coming along after my last 2 weeks being up to my eyeballs in Oracle Application Server 10.1.3, but that will wait. The exciting news is:

I’m going to present at Hotsos Symposium 2009! I’m especially excited because I’ve wanted to attend this event ever since they held the first one, but just haven’t been able to get there. This time, I decided to try my luck at submitting a session proposal and I got lucky. I’m on the very distinguished speaker list and will be presenting “Avoiding Common RAC Issues” sometime during the March 8-12, 2009 event.

For those that have attended this event before, I know it’s somewhat unique, so if you have tips for a first-time attendee (and presenter), please drop them in comments or drop me a line via email or whatever. I hope that you can attend–I’m honored to be among the absolutely stellar speaker lineup and am really more excited about attending other sessions than I am about presenting my own! See you in Irving, TX!

    Congrats !

    As someone once told me: “You will be scared shitless, despite how experienced you are…”. So go with the flow.

    Thanks for the warning, Marco…I think! :)

    Hope to see you and many other of my friends there in Texas!

    I would say relax, don't be scared! I have been to every Symposium to date and one of the things I like best about it is that it is small and friendly yet full of the best Oracle performance information you can find!

    Thanks, Patty. I'm not really scared–I know quite a few of the people that
    I'm sure will be there and meeting new folks doesn't make me nervous anyway.
    I'm looking forward to it! Now, if I can just get started writing the
    session I promised to do :).

    Dan,

    Unfortunately Hotsos is not what used to bel.As you know Cary left them and started new company.Also Mike ( Rac gury ) works for Oracle now .Last year presentations were not good as previous years.
    I was there and best part is to be at the party at president suite …Do not miss it…

    Have some vodka.. That will help and keep it short.

    Regards,

    Miladin

    Both Cary and Mike are on the speaker list, though, so I'm not sure it matters where they work, does it? Sorry to hear you think last year wasn't as good. This will be my first, so I'm excited to attend and hope it will be a good year!
