In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
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

After much anticipation the new Release 1 of Oracle 12c (184.108.40.206) is finally available!
What does this mean:
As they say…this is BIG. Get more details about In Memory here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/in-memory/overview/index.html
I am very excited about the possibilities of what we can do with this technology. It will be a game changer especially for those of us trying to do agile data warehousing and business intelligence.
Now we can talk about having big data in memory – quickly accessible so it can be used.
Anyway, it is a big day in Oracle-land.
Now if I can just get my client to upgrade….
