Oracle OpenWorld in sight, 3 weeks away

Just looked at my calendar and realized that we’re less than a month away from Oracle OpenWorld! There are tons of great sessions on the list and my schedule is full after even just a quick scan. That means there will certainly be hard times ahead as new sessions catch my eye (there are always a few) and I have to make the hard decisions on the fly.

If you’re looking for RAC information, check out the sessions hosted by the RAC SIG and the RAC SIG events. They’re all posted on the RAC SIG website at As you’ll see, Sunday is the IOUG User Group Forum Day and many of us will be spending time in Moscone West to attend these great sessions. There are also some RAC SIG events on Monday and Tuesday as well, so be sure to attend them as well.

My presentations are on the schedule finally. If you’re interested in what I have to say, stop by these sessions:

  • Sunday, 10am, Moscone West 2002-L2: High Availability Options for Oracle Database, S292927
  • Sunday, 1pm, Moscone West 2005-L2: Is That Really You? (Co-presented with Matt Topper), S292939
  • Monday, 4:45pm, Hilton Yosemite Room C: RAC For Beginners: The Basics, S291026

I’ll also be attending the RAC SIG events, so you can spot me there. When not attending those sessions, I’ll either be hanging out in the Unconference area, the OTN Lounge, the Piocon exhibit hall booth, or off watching some of the other great sessions.

I’ll post my complete schedule and planned sessions as the start of the conference gets closer. Hope to see you there. I’m also online at the  OpenWorld Connect site. Look me up (dannorris) and join the RAC SIG group there as well.
