Oracle Open World 2016 is almost here…where did the summer go??

damn_fall

With this upon us, there is something you attendees need and that’s to know about what awesome sessions are at Oracle Open World from the Delphix team!  I gave my options up as is the tragedy of switching companies in late spring from Oracle, but you can catch some great content on how to reach the new level in data management with Tim Gorman, (my phenomenal hubby, duh!) and Brian Bent from Delphix:

After absorbing all this great content on Sunday, you can come over to Oak Table World at the Children’s Creativity Museum on Monday and Tuesday to see the Oak Table members present their latest technical findings to the world.  The schedule and directions to the event are all available in the link above.

If you’re looking for where the cool kids will be on Thursday, check out the Delphix Sync event!  There’s still time to register if you want to join us and talk about how cool data virtualization is.

If you’re a social butterfly and want to get more involved with the community, check out some of the great activities that, and I do mean THAT Jeff Smith and the SQL Developer team have been planning for Oracle Open World, like the Open World Bridge Run.

So some unknowing fool gave me full access to a fridge of Starbucks caffeinated beverages, which should be against the law in this fine country.  Needless to say, my ability to type approximately 180wpm has offered me the opportunity to catch up and blog about what it’s like almost a month in employed with Delphix.

In just the last two weeks, a number of conference sessions have come about and events that I plan on being part of.  Some of them are well known, some aren’t and some require a bit of promotion to make them even greater than they already are, (you don’t want to be that person that wonders why they missed out, now do you?)

RMOUG Quarterly Education Workshop

At the end of this month, on July 29th, RMOUG is having their summer QEW at the Denver Aquarium.  The summer event is our second largest event of the year, (behind February’s Training Days conference) and the planning is starting to come together, (which is good considering it’s in a couple weeks!)  The speakers are two great ones in the community, Solarwinds’ Janis Griffin and OnX’s Jim Czuprynski.  We’ll have a Women in Technology lunch and learn, (Jim’s wife, Ruth, who had a long career in technology) will be part of the round table conversation with the women in our community to discuss some great topics!  If you have family you’d like to invite, check out the opportunity for discount tickets to enjoy the aquarium post the event!  You can read the details of the event and register at RMOUG’s website.

The Bay Bridge Run

The first will be a promotion for Oracle Open World.  Every year there is a run across the bridge on September 18th and it’s a great way to get to know some of the best people in the Oracle community before we get lost amidst the Moscone mayhem.  The view is fantastic and if you’re like me and age has impacted your ability to keep up with some of those in our community that like to run 100+ miles in a single outing, you can walk the bridge as well.  If you’re interested, check out the following Facebook link and come be a part of this great event!

During Oracle Open World, I’ll be busy Tuesday and Wednesday, (Sept. 20th and 21st) at the Children’s Museum, heading up the Oak Table World.  It’s one of those tasks that I took over for Kyle so he can focus on what he does best.  The event will be at the Children’s museum by the Moscone again and we’re close to signing on Pythian and one other vendor to sponsor the event with Delphix.  Tim will be designing the great t-shirts that are coveted each year and I’m considering scheduling a hackathon if there’s enough interest.  I’ll get the schedule posted soon and thanks for everyone’s patience!

OK, time for another Starbucks, pray for my office mates… 🙂
