Here’s a quick rundown of places I plan to be during the week.
|Sunday 9/28/14 3:30||Expert Oracle Exadata: Then and Now [UGF6626]||I’ll be participating in the Exadata Then and Now Panel with Tanel Poder, Andy Colvin, Martin Bach, Karl Arao, Frits Hoogland and anyone else we can drag in. The idea is to get book authors from “Apress Expert Oracle Exadata” version 1 and version 2 (due out by the end of the year) to discuss things that have changed since the book was first published in 2011.|
|Monday 9/29/14 11:30||Engineered Systems General Session[GEN8922]||This is an hour and half long session with a bunch of speakers (me and Keith Lippiatt from Accenture/Enkitec, Juan Loaiza, John Fowler, Ganesh Ramamurthy and Michael Workman from Oracle). This will be a more technical talk than you might expect for a keynote. And I’ve heard some of the speakers are dressing down, so I shouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb. :) Here’s a link to the Keynote Video. (my and Keith’s bit is about 3 minutes in)|
|Tuesday 9/30/14 12:45||How to Hire World Class Oracle Dudes and Dudettes||This is a TED talk on how to find exceptional people and how to get them to join your company. Here’s a link to a video of the talk.|
|Wednesday 10/1/14 3:00||Hanging Out at Jillian’s||I’ll just be hanging out with some of the Enkitec guys.|
|Thursday 10/2/14 10:45||Oracle Database In-Memory In Action[CON6812]||This is a joint presentation with Tanel Poder on the new 22.214.171.124 In-Memory Option.|
Hope to see you in San Francisco.
