The Data Warrior

Changing the world, one data model at a time. How can I help you?

The Data Warrior Goes to Oracle Open World 2015 (#OOW15)

Yes boy and girls, it is that time of year again. Time for the BIG show in San Francisco – OOW15

I will as usual, attend, but only for a few days this year (been away from home too much).

My Talk

I will be presenting my session Worst Practices in Data Warehouse Design (UGF9985) on Sunday at 10:00 AM in Moscone South, room 274 (courtesy of ODTUG!).  This will be a quick one as I only have 45 minutes to do a one hour talk. Yikes!

If you will be in SF by Sunday, be sure to come by and say “hi.”

Morning Chi Gung?

As usual, I will try to gather some folks near either Union Square or maybe by Yerba Buena Gardens for a little morning relaxation with some Chi Gung (Qigong) . Most likely around 7 AM for 30 minutes. Probably Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday, Follow me on twitter @kentgraziano and look for #MorningChiGung #OOW15 for final time and location.

Monday for sure though, I will be doing a shortened session on the beach at the 4th Annual OOW SF Bay Swim around 9:15 AM or so. Nothing like a little chi movement to warm you up before and after jumping in the bay.

The Rest of My Schedule

Much shorter than usual but here is what I plan to see so far:

Other Fun Stuff

Along with the educational sessions is of course the opportunity to network with folks. I expect I will be doing that as much as possible. There is the annual Oracle ACE dinner, and who know what else. I am sure I will find plenty to keep me busy.

Since I arrive early for the Oracle ACE Directors annual briefing at HQ, I know I will be downtown Friday evening and all day Saturday. Drop me a note if you will be there too and want to hang out and see some of the sites and eat some top notch grub.

Cheers.

  1. Hi Kent,

    We spoke briefly after your “Worst Practices” Oaktable talk, where I got to show how much I know about bad practices! (Say, could you endorse me on LinkedIn for that: “Worst Practices”?).

    I will be in San Francisco early and late, and I will be free starting Saturday afternoon. Is the ACE dinner Saturday night?

    How about letting me know through Twitter (DM or public to @StewAshton) if and when you want to get together. Do you know Martin Widlake? He’s also up for gathering.

    And yes, no need to ask, I voted for Heli…
