Last week I returned to Denver, Colorado for the RMOUG Training Days conference. I had gone last year as an attendee, but this year I was invited to give my presentation on the Oracle 11g ADR (slides and info at the end of this post). While I haven’t attended very many conferences yet, I can’t imagine a bigger bang for your buck than RMOUG Training Days. This year’s conference had a great number of Oracle ACES presenting, including Jonathan Lewis, Cary Millsap, Kerry Osborne, Karl Arao, Debra Lilly, Tim Gorman, Kellyn Pot’Vin, and my Pythian colleagues Alex Gorbachev and Gwen Shapira, just to name a few. It was definitely an honor to be listed on the speaker roster along side (or at least very far below) these giants. It was also a great pleasure to meet many of the folks in the Oracle community that I had only “met” previously on twitter.
I presented an updated version of the Oracle 11g ADR presentation which I gave at the NoCOUG 2011 Summer conference. While this session wasn’t as technically meaty as some of the others, the audience was definitely engaged and I enjoyed some great Q&A both during and after the session. I’ve included these in a newly updated set of slides which I’m attaching here, and I plan to turn the whole thing into a nice blog post in the not-too-distant future. Until, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, and I’ll try to include them in my upcoming blog post.
