Oracle OpenWorld 2013, where I'll be...

I have a fairly busy schedule next week at Oracle OpenWorld 2013.

It all starts on Sunday with a day long seminar.  I'll be doing a series of "five things about" - in the areas of SQL, PL/SQL, Performance and more.  You can check out and register for those sessions (and many others) here: http://www.oracle.com/openworld/oracle-university/index.html

Next, on Monday I'll be delivering:

Session ID: GEN8579
Session Title: General Session: What’s New in Oracle Database Application Development
Venue / Room: Marriott Marquis - Salon 8
Date and Time: 9/23/13, 12:15 - 13:15


I've done a session like this every year for the last 8 or so years, It'll cover what new Oracle Database Application development techniques have become available over the last year (and will include a few Oracle Database 12c repeats from last year where relevant).

Next, on Tuesday I'll be doing:

Session ID: CON8426
Session Title: The Five Best Things to Happen to SQL
Venue / Room: Moscone South - 103
Date and Time: 9/24/13, 10:30 - 11:30


This is not just the five best things to happen to SQL in Oracle Database 12c - but rather - five of the coolest things to happen to the SQL language over the years.  You might be surprised at how many you did not know about....

And lastly - on Wednesday - the last slot before the appreciation event - I'll be presenting on:

Session ID: CON11637
Session Title: What’s New in Oracle Database 12c
Venue / Room: Moscone South - 103
Date and Time: 9/25/13, 17:00 - 18:00


This is not a repeat of last years "Top 12 Things about Oracle Database 12c", this is all new content - things discovered and found useful in the last year of using Oracle Database 12c.  So, if you have seen my "12 things" talk - or videos - or read the articles in Oracle Magazine, this will be all new and different.

I hope to see you around - I'll be on site all week from Saturday evening until Wednesday night (flying back home on a redeye Wednesday).

Enjoy the show!
