My Little World in Open World

Oracle Open World is coming up in just two months ... actually sooner. It will be quite active for me.

First, I am sharing the stage with a panel with some very distinguished folks - Lewis Cunningham, Eddie Awad, Mark Rittman, Tim Hall, Hans Forbich, Rich Niemiec, and Bradley Brown. This is a real session - S300480 "Oracle ACE Director Birds-of-a-Feather Tips and Techniques" but the format is free question and answer session.

On one hand I feel deeply honored and thrilled to be on the same forum that reads like a who's who in the Oracle community. But on the other hand, the abstract says "Attendees are encouraged to submit their hardest questions in a game of Stump the Chump" Huh? Anyway, it's going to be thrilling nonetheless! Come see us at 10:30 AM on Sep 25th Room 301 Moscone South.

Then, I have three sessions, yes three! All three were selected by user voting in Oracle Mix.
  1. Tue the 23rd at 5:00 PM: Real World Best Practices for DBAs (S301683) Room 236 Moscone South
  2. Wed the 24th at 5:00 PM: 11g New Features for DBAs (S301684) Room 236 Moscone South
  3. Thu the 25th at 12:00 noon: Partitioning: When, Which and How (S301710) Room 200 Moscone South
I also have an ACE Directors' Meeting someday, probably on Sunday. Well, I will have my hands full. As always, Exhibition hall will be a place I will spen a lot of time. I get to know about new products and technology, some of which actually debut during Open World. So, it leaves a tough question - which sessions I should attend.
