This one looks like the real thing ... getting advice to "not skip" the patching process for a whole bunch of things included here.

I'm just saying ...

grumpy old dba goes to the mountains ( have to ski somewhere )?

So in a slight reversal of submit so many presentation abstracts get rejected so many times the Rocky Mountain training days 2015 will be featuring me!  Wow pumped yikes this should be a ton of fun!

Ok to be totally honest Maria Colgan is keynoting not me ( shocking news still trying to get over it ).

Rocky Mountain training days 2015

Looks like a top batch of speakers and topics ... I only have to present at the same time as people like Alex Gorbachev / Bill Inmon / Heli Helskyaho ... so well maybe room is a little sparse but I will be attempting to bribe people into attending my session so we will see how that goes.

Thanks RMOUG!

PS on another topic more news soon on our GLOC 2015 conference coming up in May 2015!

Jim the smooth talking always motivated Oracle Ace Director did two great presentations for us here at NEOOUG on Friday September 19th.

His presentations can be found 12c SQL that almost tunes itself and 12c How hot is your data?

Thanks Jim!

keeping my fingers crossed just submitted abstract for RMOUG 2015 Training Days ...

The Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group has been big and organized for a very long time.  I have never been out there ( my bad ) but am hoping to change that situation in 2015.

Abstracts are being accepted for Training Days 2015 ... my first one is in there now thinking about a second submission but my Hotsos 2014 presentation needs some more work/fixing.  Ok lets be honest I need to shrink it considerably and tighten the focus of that one.

Information on RMOUG 2015 can be found here: RMOUG Training Days 2015

Keeping my fingers crossed!

have fun anyone heading out to OOW 2014

Wed, 2014-07-16 16:29
For anyone who has never attended a San Francisco Oracle Open World you really should go at some point.  The city is beautiful and the event well organized if a little on the chaotic side.

I have been lucky enough to attend quite a few of them over the last 10 years but missed out last year and also will be missing out this year.

It has been just once that one of my presentation abstracts was accepted out there.  I applied this year with two of what I think are quite good presentations but well no dice.

I have a free pass for the conference ( thanks Oracle Ace program ) but work is not willing to give me time off to attend this year and also not willing therefore to help pay for it.  I could take vacation off to attend but well it is very expensive and I need the time off that I do have for other things.

Have fun anyone that does make it out there!  Maybe I will make it to OOW 2015?
