Challenge: Most stupid exhibition freebie you can find at OOW2013

I’ve been challenged by Doug Burns to find the most stupid exhibition freebie as a present for Andy Cowling. I am of course going to cheat as much as possible to win this challenge, so if you see something particularly stupid, can you let me know so I can snag one. Needless to say, keep […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Summary (Oracle Invented The Cloud)…

Here’s a quick summary of my Oracle OpenWorld 2012 experience. First of all, a list of the posts I made during my stay: Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 3… Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 3 (continued) Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 2 Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 1 Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 5

Day 5 was a presentations day for me. I tried to make as many notes as I could, but you will see the quality and accuracy of the notes tail off as the day went along… Tom’s Top 12 Things About the Latest Generation of Database Technology My bullets don’t quite match Tom’s, which is […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 4

My RAC Attack session was pretty early, so I headed straight there for the morning. The OCP lounge always has drinks and food, so regular pitstops there are the norm for me at OOW. If you have OCP or above, it’s really worth dropping by on the first day and getting your ribbons, so you […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 3

Day 3 was similar to day 2 for me. I spent a lot of time hanging around the RAC Attack sessions. A lot of people pass through, so in addition to helping people set up virtualized RAC, there are always interesting people to talk to. I did some serious demo grounds cruising again, including: Data […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 2

The cold continues… I decided than rather than trying to sit in sessions and struggle to cope I would do my stint at RAC Attack and spend the day on the demo grounds… The demo grounds are a really awesome way to get information because you are often speaking to the developers and product specialists working […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day 1

Day 1 turned out to be a little awkward for me because I was feeling pretty under the weather. I’ve been nursing a very minor cold for a couple of weeks and I think the lack of sleep has made it kick up a gear. I went to a DB tuning session and an ADF […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 1

After another night with little sleep, Saturday was a chance to recover. I had no formal plans for the morning. I registered for OOW, then went out for breakfast with Marcelle, who then had to shoot to MySQL Connect. From there I went back to my room for a little rest, then it was out […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 2

Day 2 of the ACE Director briefing went pretty much to plan. My recent adventures in WebLogic meant I had to pay special attention to a few areas I would normally let wash over me. I also learned a few things about the WebLogic roadmap that made me kick myself for some of the recent […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012 : Day Minus 3 (continued)

Continuing from my previous post, the Oracle ACE Director Meeting went well. There seems little point in giving you a list of things I can’t tell you about, so I think I will just say I like Eddie Awad‘s summary of the day in tweets here. I think it is safe for me to say […]
