IOUG’s Collaborate 14, is star-studded this year with the Pythian team illuminating various tracks in the presentation rooms. It’s acting like a magnet in the expo halls of The Venetian for data lovers. It’s a kind of rendezvous for those who love their data. So if you want your data to be loved, feel free to drop by at Pythian booth 1535.
Leading from the front is Paul Vallée with an eye-catching title, with real world gems. Then there is Michael Abbey’s rich experience, Marc Fielding’s in-depth technology coverage and Vasu’s forays into Apps Database Administration. There is my humble attempt at Exadata IORM, and Rene’s great helpful tips, and Alex Gorbachev’s mammoth coverage of mammoth data – it’s all there with much more to learn, share and know.
Vegas Strip is buzzing with the commotion of Oracle. Even the big rollers are turning their necks to see what the fuss is about. Poker faces have broken into amazed grins, and even the weird, kerbside card distribution has stopped. Everybody is focused on the pleasures of Oracle technologies.
Courtesy of social media, all of this fun isn’t confined to Vegas. You can follow @Pythian on Twitter to know it all, live, and in real time.
