Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Networking Opportunity Events #OOW14

http://www.oracle.com/openworld/register/packages/index.htmlWhere I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many people are misled to believe) at OOW.  To attend one of these events:

  1. You’re registered as an OpenWorld Attendee.
  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host. That means you actually contact the host and ask to attend before OOW.
  3. You visit the host’s booth at OpenWorld in order to pick up whatever is required for entry and get to know what the host actually does.
  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – just spend your time at a regular OOW reception the same evening and you’ll still get plenty of party time.

Visit all those vendors and make them feel welcomed this year!

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 Networking Opportunity Events

Where I can keep track of the special events (note: these are not “parties” as so many http://www.oracle.com/openworld/register/packages/index.htmlpeople are misled to believe) at OOW.  To attend one of these events:

  2. You’re either a prospect, customer, or goodwill contact for the host.

  4. Do not just show up at the event and attempt to “crash” it – just spend your time at a regular OOW reception the same evening and you’ll still get plenty of party time.

Unlike last year, there isn’t a specific Music Festival OOW program. Most of the effort is going into the America’s Cup race before the OOW program.  So visit all those vendors and make them feel welcomed this year!

Well, it is official…..Oracle Database 12c (12.1.0.1) has been released and can be found on OTN.

Alll About Database 12c At Collaborate 13 #C13DEN – IOUG Forum

The Background behind Oracle Database 12c Revealed at Collaborate 13 presented by Bobby Curtis (BIAS Corp – @curtisbl294) and me:

And then we explain the specifics about What You Need to Know about Database 12c, and Why being part of IOUG made this possible:

#C13DEN Collaborate 13 Urban Revival Night Party IOUG/OAUG/Quest

Denver Colorado Convention Center April 10, 2013 – Thank you to all the attendees, volunteers, sponsors and staff who made this another legendary week of Oracle education for everyone!  See you in 2014 – Collaborate 14 – Las Vegas, Nevada April 7-11, 2014 – Venetian Resort and Conference Center.  Taped for collaborate.ioug.org by me.

#C13DEN: Session #579 – Introduction to Database 12c New Features and Functionality

http://coll13.mapyourshow.com/5_0/sessions/sessiondetails.cfm?ScheduledSessionID=18A0CFC5

(Now history…but we’re in-queue for #OOW13)
Collaborate asked ” What about Database 12c? ” @IOUG is pleased to deliver! In MHB4A 830A Th, Just before you hop on the plane/bus/car/train/buffalo (it’s Denver…) back home, get tuned in, turned on, updated, clarified, ask your what is it questions, bring clarity to the cloud, plug-in, charge-up and get what you travelled all the way here to find out the details about the database formerly-known-as-next-generation (psst…that means “12c”).

No,it’s not GA yet (General Availability). Yes, we are both knowledgable Beta participants under NDA. Yes – you need to know more than you do today based upon your experience with even 11gR2.  Bring your coffee, munchies and your questions.  And prepare for some answers.  Finally.

How?  Because Oracle teams with IOUG for a reason in this area – we know how to educate people, with the right way to do it – even for a product that isn’t here (quite yet.)
