Oracle OpenWorld 2018: Day 2

Today is my second day of Oracle OpenWorld 2018. I can now go to the Moscone Center without GPS (cool) and then I decided to follow a MySQL session (my boss will be happy). Yes my first session was Using the MySQL Binary Log as a Change Stream by Luis Soares, Software Development Director, Oracle
The speaker explains what are the binary logs.

So everybody will understand that the session was very exciting with many questions.

After this session I decided to follow a session about Oracle Sharding. The session was animated by
Mark Dilman, Senior Director, Software Development, Oracle
Srinagesh Battula, Sr. Principal Product Manager, Oracle
Gairik Chakraborty, Senior Director,Database Administration, Epsilon

They start by defining what is Sharding, how to setup, how to manage queries and so on. You can see this blog to understand what is Sharding. And Then after they talk about the New Features on Oracle 19c.
