ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2007 notable events

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.

ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2007 coming up

I’m spending a significant portion of my time lately on preparing for the ODTUG Kaleidoscope conference coming up on June 18th. I managed to get my presentations submitted early (for a change) and have been trolling for Development DBA SIG panelists for the panel discussion we’ll have on Tuesday, June 19th from 5:30-7pm.

I have two sessions to present at the conference. The first is “High Availability Options for Oracle Database” on Tuesday at 4:15pm and the other session is “RAC For Beginners: The Basics” on Thursday at 9:45am. You can find the abstracts on the conference website. When I’m not presenting, I’ll be attending other sessions or meeting with friends or customers that I haven’t seen except when we rendezvous at conferences. You should also check out the Kaleidoscope sessions given by Matt Topper and Shaun O’Brien, a couple of good friends that know a thing or two about Oracle as well.

If you can’t make it to Daytona Beach for ODTUG Kaleidoscope (definitely your loss), then maybe we can meet at Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco in November!
