Upcoming Events and Speaking Engagements- Fall 2016

My sabbatical from speaking is about to end in another week and it will return with quite the big bang.


Oct. 14th

First up is Upper NY Oracle User Group, (UNYOUG) for a day of sessions in Buffalo, NY.  I’ll be doing three talks:

  1.  Virtualization 101
  2.  The Limitless DBA
  3.  AWR and ASH with Database 12c



Oct 25th-28th

I’ll be at Pass Summit!  I’ve been wanting to attend this conference since I was managing MSSQL 7 databases!  I finally get to go, but as I’m newly back in the MSSQL saddle, no speaking sessions for me.  I do have a number of peers on the MSSQL side of the house, so hoping to have folks show me around and if you have the time to introduce yourself or introduce me to events and people at this fantastic event, please do!

Nov. 2nd

Next, I head into October with quite the number of talks.  I’ll start out on Nov. 2nd in Detroit, Mi at the Michigan Oracle User Summit, (MOUS) doing a keynote, “The Power in the Simple Act of Doing” and then a technical session, “Virtualization 101”.

Nov. 3rd

I’ll fly out right after I finish my second talk so I can make my way down to Raleigh, NC for the East Coast Oracle conference, (ECO), where I’ll also be doing a couple presentations on Nov. 3rd.

Nov. 9th

The next week I get to stay close to home for the Agile Test and Test Automation Summit.  This is a brand new event in the Denver area.  I’ll be doing a new talk here on Test Data Management, a hot buzzword, but one that people rarely understand the complexities and automation around.

Nov. 10th

The next day, I’m back downtown in Denver, where I can present at Rocky Mountain DataCon, (RMDC) event in Denver.


The RMDC is a newer event and it’s really been picking up traction in the Denver area.  I’ll be speaking on “The Limitless DBA”, focusing on the power of virtualization.  Kent Graziano, the Data Warrior and evangelist for Snowflake will be there, too.  I’m glad to see this new local event taking off in the Denver area, as the Denver/Boulder area consistently ranks high as one of best places to be if you’re in the tech industry.

I’m working to take it easy during the month of December, as I’ll have enough to do just catching up at work at Delphix and then with RMOUG duties with the upcoming Training Days 2017 conference in February 2017!
