Oracle Open World is fast approaching. Over the past couple of weeks I have been using the schedule builder tool to work out what sessions I would like to attend. Unfortunately there are LOTS of sessions I would love to attend but I haven’t worked out a way to be in 10 places at the same time.
When attending a conference I try to achieve a number of things. These are find out about new topics/features, benchmark my knowledge of existing topics, try some of the hands-on labs, try something new and do something completely different. This will be my challenge at Oracle Open World.
There are a number of other people from Ireland who will be attending OOW, and there are some plans to have an Ireland social event. Plus there is lots of meetings/catch-ups planned too with people I know from the virtual Oracle world.
There will be some people from AIB who will be presenting at OOW. Their presentation will be on the Tuesday morning 10:15-11:00. I’ll be there.
Other social things that are on include the Oracle ACE dinner, the Oracle Music festival, with Kings of Leon playing support to Pearl Jam on the Wednesdays night.
It is going to be a busy week, an enjoyable week, a week of learning new things and finding out lots of what the 12c database will be like.
Will I get time to go to everything ? The simple answer is NO. So I will just have to try to get to another Oracle Open World soon.
