Perth is far from everywhere, but not far from the Oracle technologies. Passion, knowledge, and the urge to share experience, skills, tips, and knowledge brought people from across the planet under one roof. There, they busied themselves by learning, educating, and networking under the banner of Oracle with 20:20 Foresight.
The event was organized by the Australian Oracle User Group with many other sponsors and exhibitors. What an explosion of innovation! Where there is Oracle on this planet, Pythian is there, rest assured. We presented three papers during this mega conference in Western Australia. Yury Velikanov presented on Direct NFS, and I presented on Exadata Patching and Oracle IORM in Exadata. Pythian’s Warren Adkins was also present during the event.
The sessions by Tom Kyte, Malenie Caffrey, Connor McDonald, Peter Sharman, Martin Power, and Paul Guerin were a few of the many great presenters. From pluggable databases to Oracle Data Archive, and from R12 migrations to Exadata, the conference had something for everyone. It also supported the great cause of cancer council in Western Australia, and the passion for it was great.
