Oracle Open World is coming at the end of October. Lots of people are starting to get excited as Oracle Open World is the number one place for all the Oracle geeks from around the World to hang out for a week.
This year I will be giving 2 presentations. Both of them are on the Sunday. That means I get to really enjoy the rest of the conference. These presentations are:
Sunday 13:30-14:15 & 14:30-15:14 (a double session) Session Title : 12 more things about Oracle 12c Description: These sessions are being organised by the EMEA Oracle User Group and follow on from the successful sessions that were at last years Oracle Open World. These sessions/presentations will consist of 12 presenters giving a 5-7 minute talk on a topic related to the Oracle Database. Many thanks to Debra Lilley for arranging these session. For me I will be talking about Running R in the Oracle Database using Oracle R Enterprise. 5-7 Minutes is not enough time for this topic, but the whole idea of these sessions and talks to to give people a taster of what is possible in the Oracle Database. You can then use your new knowledge to check out other sessions at OOW and/or to check it out when you get home.
I'll put up another blog post when I have the full list and schedule of presenters.
Sunday 15:30-16:15 (yes this is right after the previous session/presentation) Session Title : Real Business Value from Big Data and Advanced Analytics Description : I will be co-presenting with Antony Heljula and we will be talking about some of the advanced analytics and big data projects we have worked on. We have had some amazing results with these projects and we will be giving you a taster of what is possible. Also some of these project didn't involve big data. So even with small data you can have amazing results using Advanced Analytics / Predictive Analytics / Data Mining / Data Science.
After these presentations I get to enjoy the rest of Oracle Open World with having to worry about giving another presentation.
My diary for the conference is filling up fast and it looks like I will be busy each day from 8am to late into the evening. Oracle Open World has lots and lots of social and networking events and these are great for meeting up with people and making new contacts.
