I’m always taken aback how much conferences cost, even if they are way cheaper options than many formal classes. Education costs money, we all know that, but considering how little it costs to attend RMOUG Training Days, I always tell people, this is one of the best training opportunities anyone can take advantage of.
I need to remind folks of some of the highlights of this great conference that I am very proud to be the Training Days director of. This year you have new speakers like Oracle Open World’s Technologist of the Year, Arup Nanda along with so many other great speakers like Frits Hoogland, Andy Colvin and John Clarke. These folks are going to offer some great new content, as are our great return speakers like Maria Colgan, Tim Gorman, Cary Millsap and Dominic Delmolino. It will be held once again at the wonderful Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver, Colorado.
Support of Oracle’s ACE/ACED program is phenomenal again this year. If you aren’t familiar with this program, its the Oracle community’s way of recognizing the database specialists who continue to give back to their Oracle Community.
