Hurry – Only 24 Hours Left to Get a Free Conference Registration

As I have written before, I love Oracle User Groups. My two most favorite groups are the Oracle Development Tools User Group (ODTUG) and the Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group (RMOUG). These two groups put on what are arguably the best annual conferences for users of Oracle technology – by users, for users. Over the [...]

Oracle OpenWorld 2012: Day 4

It was another beautiful, sunny day in San Francisco. I started the day, again, with some morning Chi Gung, then I enjoyed the morning keynote watching the big screen in Yerba Buena Gardens. Quite a pleasant way to listen to these talks. It was a light day session-wise for me, but it did set off a few light bulbs. [...]

Oracle OpenWorld Day 3

Another one for the books… As before you can see a bunch of my activities on twitter (@kentgraziano and #oow). I posted a few pictures throughout the day. For the first time I got to watch two keynotes live without being in the cavern of a hall for four hours. Actually sat outside in the shade in [...]

Oracle Open World 2012: Day 2

A crazy group of us got the day off to a rip roaring start by heading down to the Dolphin Club on San Francisco Bay for an early morning swim in the bay. We cabbed it down and were greeted by a full moon over the Golden Gate Bridge. It was about 62 degrees (F) and the [...]

Along with a ton of other activities, this is the day the various Oracle user groups get to “own” the agenda and put together the sessions they think Oracle customers, and their members, might want to see. By [...]

Oracle ACE Director Meeting: Day 2

So the 2nd day was as filled with brainiac conversations as day one…and most hush hush under NDA. However, I was able to get shots of a few more slides today that were not under NDA. First, here is the agenda. Sadly the Exadata session got canceled. Oracle has been recognized in the Gartner Magic quadrants in several [...]

If I tell ya…Oracle ACE Director meeting: Day 1

Wow. This is my first time at an ACE Director product briefing and it is pretty amazing. It is a who’s who of Oracle talent from around the globe getting updated by Oracle execs and product management. I feel very privileged to be part of it. Lots of cool things coming your way, but until [...]

Five Days Only – Get it Free: A Check List for Doing Data Model Design Reviews

Later this week I travel to Oracle HQ for my first product briefing as an Oracle ACE Director. In celebration of this momentous event, I have decided to give all me readers and followers a gift: For the next five days (Sept 24 – 28, 2012), my first solo Kindle book will be ON SALE for the [...]

You get all the details over at the OOW site – here. And I have finally put together my tentative schedule of events, sessions, meetups, and concerts. [...]

This year, along with the usual keynotes, exhibits, and sessions, Oracle is introducing the first every Oracle Music Festival. Like the famous SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, [...]
