Oracle OpenWorld Session Updates (In The Flesh ?) September 17, 2010Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle OpenWorld.
Based on emails I’ve received, I know a number of you are keen to attend some of my sessions at Oracle OpenWorld this year so a few updates for your information. I’ll keep this blog entry as up to date as I can with the latest information as it comes to hand, so keep checking back or of course check the official site and the Schedule Builder for the latest updates.
As of this morning, both of my official presentations were marked as full so if you tried to register for them you may have been disappointed. However, at this stage, only one of my presentations has been moved to a larger venue.
The current details of my sessions are as follows:
Session S318615: “IOUG: Oracle Indexing Tips Trick and Traps” – Sunday September 19, 12:30pm Moscone West L2 Room 2005 – FULL
The above session is still unfortunately marked as full. Being an IOUG session, it may not be possible to move this to a larger room so unfortunately, if you haven’t already pre-registered for this, it may be difficult to get in. From past experience though, if you get there early enough and wait in the standby queue for 10-15 minutes, usually sufficient people fail to turn up to perhaps make the wait in the queue worthwhile.
Session S319069: “Oracle Indexing New Features In Oracle11g R1 and R2″ – Monday September 20, 2:00pm Moscone South Room 103
This session was previously marked as full but has now been moved to a different room. It was previously in room 303 but is now in the larger (1300 capacity) Room 103, still at Moscone South. If you previously couldn’t pre-register, I would recommend booking your place while you still can via the Schedule Builder as there’s every chance it could fill up again the way things are going.
“Unconference: Oracle Indexing Q & A With Richard Foote” Tuesday 21 September, 10:00am Hotel Parc 55 Mason Room
Being an Unconference session, this can’t be pre-booked and so can’t officially be full. That said, the rooms for these sessions are really really small so if you’re interested in attending, it will be a case of first in, best dressed. This is your chance to ask those indexing (or David Bowie) related questions, especially if you couldn’t manage to get into one of my other sessions. A similar session last year went really well so hopefully it’ll be something worth attending if you get the chance.
I’m really looking forward to the conference this year, especially as I wasn’t too sure for a while there that I was going to make it. Hopefully, I’ll get the chance to meeting lots more people this year and that everyone who would like to attend one of my sessions can do so. As usual, I’m packing about 2 hours worth of material into each 60 minute session so it’ll be fun to see if I can actually finish in time !!
