Count down to Oracle OpenWorld 2013

The pre-event for this year’s Oracle OpenWorld started over the weekend.

A little event called The America’s Cup. The oldest trophied sport in the world (yachting that is).

For those that don’t know Team USA is the defending champ, and Team USA happens to be sponsored primarily by Larry Ellison and Oracle.

It is a pretty exciting event with the high tech boats they are now using and the first two races got broadcast live on NBC.

The downside, we (Team USA)  lost both races. Bummer. (Looks like we won a race today)

Luckily it is a best 17 series. That runs right up to the start of #oow13.

I will be heading to SFO for the annual ACE Directors’ briefing at Oracle HQ next week before the conference starts so I am hoping to maybe catch one of the last races.

If we win again, I expect all of Larry’s keynotes will at least mention it a few hundred times. The upside is we will get to see some pretty cool highlight clips. 🙂

Speaking of keynotes, if you are attending OOW this year, you can find the times and speakers for the keynotes here.

Looks like Big Data and Club will be the main topics.

Don’t forget to plan on the attending the appreciation event on Wednesday night to see Maroon 5 and The Black Keys. That should be a great concert. Right before that will be the now-annual Blogger’s Meetup.

If you are a blogger, please join us.

Anyone interested in some Morning Chi Gung in the city by the bay during OOW? Follow me on twitter (@kentgraziano) for the where and when.

See y’all soon.

Oracle Music Fest Schedule is Out & My Oracle OpenWorld Schedule

Happy Friday!

Yes Oracle has finally relased the schedule of artists and DJ who will grace tha attendees at OOW 2012 with their talent.

Suffice it to say – WOW!

You get all the details over at the OOW site – here.

And I have finally put together my tentative schedule of events, sessions, meetups, and concerts. I plan to focus on data warehousing, BI, and SQL Developer (no surprise there). Looking forward to learning about some new tools (Endeca), and more about Exalytics.

Also looking forward to seeing and networking with longtime friends and colleagues.

And of course, hearing some GREAT music (followed by early morning Chi Gung to keep healthy and energized).

You can see my schedule by clicking the link below (PDF).

OOW Schedule

I added a bit of color to differentiate the fun stuff from the work stuff…

There are few other dinners, etc on my agenda too (Stinking Rose anyone?), but some things you all do not really need to know <wink>.

Have a great weekend.

See you in SFO.
