Oracle’s OpenWorld has ended. It was the fist time I attended this great event and it really is a “great” event:
- 60000 attendees from 145 countries
- 500 partners or customers in the exhibit hall
- 400 demos in the DEMOgrounds
- 2500 sessions
Golden Gate Run
Jeff Smith organizes the Golden Gate run on sunday morning. Ludovico Caldara has organized another one on wednesday for those that missed it:

Oak Table World
The Oak Table Network have organized their stream of conferences on monday and tusday. You want to see great experts presenting without slides – only demos? Or with slides full of hexadecimal block dumps? Or very short presentations (the ‘ted talks’)? This is what we had aside of the OOW but in the same place. Here is the agenda.
As a fan of oracle performance, and troubleshotting, this is where I’ve spend most of my Monday and Tuesday here, of course.

Some nice things happen at OTN lounge. repattack and cloneattack were there on monday. I already presented in previous blog this very great way to learn by installing the product on your laptop and play with it. Thanks to Delphix, Dbvisit and Confio for that.

You read from oracle experts in their blogs, interact with them with twitter, they read and appreciate your blogs, articles, etc. Then only one thing is missing: meet in real life. Pythian (the well known ‘love your data’ company) made it: blogger meetup on wednesday evening. All information on their blog.
I really enjoyed to meet people that I appreciate both for their technichal skills and their personalities. I cannot list all of them here. You have a short list on the Blog Roll at the right of this dbi services page. And a large list probably matches with people I follow on twitter. And it’s a nice game to recognise those that had left old pictures on social media: people changed from short hair to long hairs, or the opposite, or have glasses, etc.

After the blogger meetup, most of the people have been to Treasure Island for the Aerosmith concert. Others preferred to eat good fish at Fishermans Warf (thanks again for having been able to meet great people in the Oracle community).
At dbi services, we like to share, learn, be open and enjoy. We do that internally at the dbi xChange. And we participate to worldwide events to do the same in the Oracle community.
