It’s almost time! #OOW14 and #OTW14 – the biggest gathering of Oracle experts anywhere

Hi gang!

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.

So you want to be a Presenter? Abstract selections for 2015 are open!

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.

Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group Training Days 2015

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!

Submit here: http://www.rmoug.org/training/2015-abstract-submission/

ODTUG KScope15

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

2nd Annual World Wide Data Vault Consortium

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

Get thee to KScope14 in Seattle!

Once again it is that time of year when the who’s-who of Oracle development geekdom gather for their annual festival of education and networking.

Yes it is time for ODTUG’s annual event KScope14 to be held in Seattle,Washington from June 22nd – 26th. As always this is the not-to-be-missed independent Oracle user conference for users by users. This year includes 52 Oracle ACEs and ACE Directors, plus Oracle Corp Product Managers, and a host of other great speakers. Check out the entire list here.

As always there will be ample opportunity to network with the presenters and other attendees including breakfast with the ACEs and the popular Lunch and Learn panel discussions.

If you can make it to Seattle early, lend a helping hand and participate in the Annual KScope Community Service Day. This is the only event of its kind where the user community gathers to give back to the host city. This is now an annual tradition for ODTUG going back to helping in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Then there is the ever popular Special Event on Wednesday night. This year we will visit the world renowned Experience Music Project. (You do not want to miss this!)

As in past years, I will be giving several presentations myself, and running my now-annual Morning Chi Gung classes for those that want to start the day with this ancient Chinese health practice. I will holding these sessions each morning (Sunday – Thursday) at 7 AM.

If you need more convincing, check out ODTUG President Monty’s interview with Oracle Database Insider.

Ready now? Okay, go register here  and you can still get the early discount rate!

See you in Seattle!

Technical Content is King: ODTUG User Group Sunday at #OOW13

Yes boys and girls, it’s that time of year again.

Time for Oracle Open World 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco USA.

Time to gather with 50,000 (or so)  of your closest Oracle pals in the city by the bay.

Time to catch up on all things Oracle.

Big things I expect to hear about this year?

More Oracle 12c, SQL Developer 4.0, and of course…

BIG DATA

and

THE CLOUD!

(There is also a pretty good chance we will here a lot about The America’s Cup finals and Team USA)

And of course my good friends at ODTUG have put together another stellar lineup of Oracle ACEs, ACE Directors and all around Oracle guru’s to kick the week off with the best technical content about Oracle and Oracle tools in the known universe (seriously that is not an exaggeration).

There are sessions on database development, APEX, Hyperion/EPM, ADF, and the Oracle BI applications.

It will be an awesome day of learning.

Check out the full agenda and details here.

Then click on the OOW button on the upper right to register for the conference. Rooms are going fast and you do not want to miss this.

See you in San Fran!
