This is quick. Saw it on Twitter this morning and it is just too funny to not share:
Have a great day!
I just got this email from Amazon:
Congratulations, your book “UNA LISTA DE VERIFICACIÓN PARA REALIZAR REVISIONES A LOS DISEÑOS DE MODELOS DE DATOS” is live in the Kindle Store and is currently enrolled in KDP Select. It is available for readers to purchase here.
If you are in Mexico, you can get the book here.
If you are in Spain, you can get it here.
Now, truth is I do NOT speak, read or write Spanish. But my good friend, and Oracle expert, Galo Balda does!
I am very grateful to Galo for putting in the effort to translate my little book so other data professionals around the world could read it in their native language.
BTW – Galo is speaking at OOW14 too, so if you are going, please drop into one of his excellent sessions on Pattern Matching (Session UGF4482) and Regular Expressions (Session CON4493).
Muchas Gracias Galo!
See you all at OOW!

P.S. Don’t forget you can still get this book in English on Amazon. Get it here.
As you can guess by my lack of recent posts, I have been very busy this fall. Along with client work, home life, and editing a really cool book on SQL Developer Data Modeler, I have also been prepping for my annual pilgrimage to Moscone Center in San Francisco for Oracle Open World and OakTable World 2014.
As usual, there will be much to see, do, and learn at what is arguably the largest (60k+ people) gathering of Oracle users and experts in the world. Expect big news from Oracle Corp, great sessions from Oracle ACEs and ACE Directors, and of course the annual customer appreciation event.
So here is my short list of what to check out this year:
Annual ODTUG Sunday Symposiums: http://www.odtug.com/oracleopenworld2014Sunday
ODTUG’s best speakers during the week: http://www.odtug.com/oracleopenworld2014
OOW Executive Keynotes: https://www.oracle.com/openworld/keynotes/index.html
For all the sessions by day, check the main Content Catalog (over 2028 sessions): https://oracleus.activeevents.com/2014/connect/search.ww#loadSearch-event=null&searchPhrase=&searchType=session&tc=0&sortBy=&p=&i%2810009%29=10105
OakTable World 2014: http://www.oraclerealworld.com/oaktable-world/agenda/
This year I will again have the honor or presenting at OakTable World on Tuesday, September 29. I will give a data warehouse design session in the morning, then do a short TED-style talk over lunch about a Data Vault 2.0 innovation using MD5 hash functions.
If you have not heard of OTW, it is a FREE event co-located with OOW (http://www.oraclerealworld.com/oaktable-world/location/). It was organized by members of the elite OakTable and is in its third (or fourth?) year. Be sure to stop by and say hi!
As for special events, I plan to participate in the Run/Walk the Bridge on Sunday morning, the 3rd annual Swim the Bay on Monday and I will again do some Morning Chi Gung with a few friends (follow me on Twitter for where and when).
So there are lots of opportnities to meet up.
See you there!

p.s. Later next week I will be at Oracle HQ at the annual ACE Directors briefing. Watch my Twitter feed for pictures and updates.
You say you want to present and share your knowledge with the world (or at least your little corner of the world)…
Your boss says there is no $$$ to pay for any technical conferences…
You want to be a rock star and have adoring fans “LIKE” your blog or web site…
Have I got a deal for you!
All you have to do is write some awe inspiring abstract with a catchy, SEO’d title and you are on your way to geek super-stardom.
Well, assuming the committee likes what you have to say and it is highly relevant to the target audience.
Want to give it a go? Then here are my two favorite Oracle user conferences that you MUST submit too, and if you are a Data Vault kind of person, one more to try for.
Held in Denver, Colorado in the middle of ski season, this one is hard to beat for so many reasons…
In 2015 it will run from February 17-19 at the Colorado Convention Center.
Abstract submissions are open and run until October 2, 2014. So get a move on!
Also deemed a top Oracle tech event with huge Oracle ACE and ACE Director presence (like RMOUG). This year the event will be in the warm environs of Hollywood, Florida from June 21-25, 2015.
Now the catch here is that you have to be a member to submit an abstract. You are a member already, right?
If not, join today! They do have a FREE Associate member class which is good enough to submit.
But the membership fee is only $99 a year, so why not be a full member? Just say’n…
Anyway you can submit an abstract here: http://www.odtug.com/e/sx/in/eid=17
If you are an uber Data Vault geek, we want you to present and tell us your story!
The 2015 event will be held May 28-30 and the lovely Trapp Family Lodge near Stowe,Vermont (yes THAT Trapp Family)
If you don’t want to present then just attend. Registration is also open: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wwdvc-world-wide-data-vault-consortium-2015-registration-12073703773
