BLOG UPDATE 21-SEP-2009: The session Glenn Fawcett and I were scheduled to deliver has been cancelled.
They are letting me out of my cage long enough to attend Open World 2009. I’ll be working some of the Sun Oracle Database Machine demos and offering a couple of low-key sessions. One of the sessions is a joint-session with my old friend Glenn Fawcett. Glenn and I have been doing some performance engineering work on a full-rack Sun Oracle Database Machine. I don’t yet know the time slot for that session but I’ll post it here when I find out.
I’ve also signed up to deliver a session on Monday October 12 in the Open World UnConference. I signed up for it before the Sun Oracle Database Machine announcement so I gave the title of the session a bit of a stealth-title. I’ll be talking about Exadata, but perhaps more importantly I’ll have a lengthy question and answer session. If you check out the schedule you’ll see my session is in the same room following two more interesting sessions by my friend, co-worker and fellow OakTable Network member Greg Rahn and fellow OakTable Network member, and luminary, Cary Milsap:
Overlook II: Chalk & Talk: The Core Performance Fundamentals Of Oracle Data Warehousing (Greg Rahn, Database Performance Engineer, Real-World Performance Group @ Oracle)
Overlook I: Fundamentals of Performance (Oracle ACE Director Cary Millsap)
Overlook II: Oracle Exadata Storage Server FAQ Review and Q&A with Kevin Closson (Performance Architect, Oracle)
