- 9:45 – well, obviously I’ll do my session. Thanks Cary for putting me dead FIRST, on two days. I am such a morning person so it is really no problem at all.
- 11am – I want to see David Kurtz’s presentation on “Peoplesoft: A properly instrumented Application”. It should go nicely as a follow on to my session.
- 1pm – I will probably go see Julian Dykes “Inside RAC”
- 2:15pm – I want to hear about “Analytic Function and Block (re)Visits”. Always looking for new ways to showcase analytics (they rock, they roll…)
- 3:30pm – Cary’s presentation (which will be yet another nice follow on to my own) on “Lessons Learned, Version 2006.3”
Then, apparently, it is “party time” for Monday night. Fortunately, I don’t have to wake up really early Tuesday to speak (no, that would be Wednesday I have to do that again, in case I didn’t mention it – Thanks Cary for giving me two speaking slots really really early in the morning).
- 8:30am – I want to check out Mark’s “Deadlock” presentation.
- 9:45am – Doug’s “Parallel” session.
- 11am – Wolfgang’s“Tuning by Cardinality Feedback” presentation looks good.
- 1pm – Hard call, but Larry’s title of “Combining the Chocolate of Technical Metrics and the Peanut Butter of Business Metrics” wins
- 2:15pm – This was really hard – I wanted to see both, but will likely choose Jonathan’s “V$ and X$”talk
- 3:30pm – “No, Cary, We're STILL not Tuning the Right SQL Statements”, but of course.
And then – an early night, for you see – Cary has scheduled me (did I thank him for that yet?) at 8:30 in the morning the next day…
- 8:30am (yes, 8:30am) - Performance Impact of the LOG ERRORS Clause in 10gR2
- 9:45am – I’ll likely pop into “How NOT to Develop an Oracle Based Application”
- 11am and 1pm – I’m intrigued by “Applied Mathematics for Database Practitioners, Part I: The Maths” and “Applied Mathematics for Database Practitioners, Part II: The Application”. So, I will check them out
- 2:15pm – Hard one again – but likely “How Many Slaves? (Parallel Execution and the Magic of Two)” by Doug
- 3:30pm (did anyone else notice that Cary has talks scheduled at the END of the day – at the nice hour of 3:30pm in the afternoon, whereas I appear to have, well, really early ones?) – I’ll probably skip Cary’s session to see what Tim Gorman has to say about “Using STATSPACK as a Performance Data Warehouse”
And then the show is over, but the training day begins. I did the training day last year and this year Jonathan Lewis is going to do it. I’ve been scheduled to go to his seminars at least 2 or 3 times in the past but had to back out at the last minute due to scheduling conflicts. This time – I hope to make it.
Speaking of Jonathan, Christopher Foot just reviewed his new book and the review is pretty good. You can read it here…
So, if you are going to Hotsos next week – see you there, I get in late Sunday night – all the better to get up really early and have the first session in the morning (thanks Cary!)
