I will be in San Francisco a little early this year and as I’m not longer an ACE Director, it’s to attend the IOUC, (International Oracle User Conference) at Redwood Shores on Sept. 25th and 26th. I’ll be representing RMOUG for the two day event that has representatives from user groups from all over the world. Our lovely host, Mary Lou Dopart and her team, will ensure we have another great year learning how we can provide the best user group for our members in the Oracle community.
After the a lovely weekend in San Francisco with friends, I’ll be heading over with the rest of the ACE Directors to stay at the Hilton, (as this is the hotel with the worst Wi-Fi in town, I will be bringing signal flags to communicate with my fellow guests out the windows in the courtyard,which seemed successful last year… :)) As Tim is an ACED, I go where Tim goes and my coworkers have quickly called “unfair!”, but hey, being Tim Gorman’s partner has its serious perks… 🙂
The week will be filled with an incredible list of meetings, events, parties and dinners, but I will also be working my combat boots off for Oracle.
I have two sessions this year:
Oracle Exadata Database Machine Administration and Monitoring Made Easy [CON7726] — Wednesday, Oct. 1st 4:45pm, Moscone South 104, (with Mike Chaffin!)
I don’t have my AWR Warehouse talk for Oak Table World, (sorry folks, total mix up…) but I do have an OTN article on the topic coming out and I’ve sent my use cases to support Jagan Arthreya’s session, (Monday, Sept. 29th 1:30pm, Moscone South 104 [CON8449]).
When not presenting, I’ll be found at a number of demo grounds, hands on labs and AWR Warehouse Demo Grounds. Scheduled times are:
Monday- Afternoon, AWR Warehouse Demo Grounds, (SLD-111) Moscone South
Tuesday- Morning, AWR Warehouse Demo Grounds, (SLD-111), Afternoon, DBaaS Demo Grounds, (SLD-102), Moscone South
Events I’ll be attending outside of Oracle company events:
Sunday: IOUG Happy Hour, followed by the Oracle ACE Dinner.
Monday: ODTUG Happy Hour, followed by Friends of Pythian
Tuesday: ODTUG Community Meetup
Morning: Recording of Exadata w/ EM12c Session for Oracle Database Learning Stream
Evening: OTN Bloggers Meetup, (Look forward to this every year!)
Then Tim, (Tim GORMAN,for all of those who keep congratulating Tim Hall on our upcoming nuptials…LOL) and I fly back on Friday, met by any of our out of town family so we can get married on Sunday, Oct. 5th. Yeah, you heard me right….we are going to get married right after Oracle Open World… 🙂
