The 2012 edition of RMOUG Training Days in Denver less than a month away, running February 15 and 16 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Although it’s only two days, there’s a lot of technical content there, and a refreshing reduction in marketing-oriented presentations from “product managers”. It’s not too late to register, and it’s a pretty nice excuse to get to the Rockies in ski season. I’ll be doing two presentations, and am polishing up whitepapers and presentations for the submission deadline tomorrow:
- Exadata I/O Resource Manager: Ideal Technology for Database Consolidation, Wednesday 1:15pm in room 4B
- Peering Through the Cloud: The Straight Goods on Oracle Exalogic, directly after, Wednesday 4pm in room 4C
They’re right after each other in the grid, but I do get a short break for the dedicated exhibit hall time and paid vendor presentations (yes there are still a few; they have to pay the bills somehow).
A few other Pythian presentations:
- Database I/O Performance: Measuring and Planning, by Alex Gorbachev, first thing at 9:15am Wednesday in 404
- Monitoring MySQL with Oracle Cloud Control 12c, by Alex Gorbachev, 1:15pm on Wednesday in 404
- Making sense of Big Data, by Gwen Chapira, 4pm on Wednesday in 404
- Oracle 11g: Learning to Love the Automatic Diagnostic Repository by Don Seiler, 9:45am on Thursday in 405
- NoSQL Deep Dive by Gwen Shapira, 1:30pm on Thursday in 401
And a few others I’m planning on attending:
- Sane SAN 2011 by James Morle. Curious to see what James’ perspective on the changes in SAN architecture in the past 10 years has been
- Developing and Deploying Extremely Large Databases by Dan Morgan. He has a 400TB example; are petabyte examples coming soon?
- Do it yourself Exadata, is it possible? by Kerry Osborne. I think Kevin Closson was the first person to propose this topic, and it’s great to see if explored formally.
Naturally rooms and times can move around, so it’s a good idea to check the links the day of the presentation to make sure it hasn’t moved.
