Oracle OpenWorld 2007...
I arrived last night, late. I am doing a weeks worth of stuff in two days this year. I've had a rehearsal, a podcast recorded and am waiting to do my first talk - at the Unconference (the no slide zone). The first talk is "DBA 2.0", the role of the DBA in the year 2007 (and how it is a bit different from the way it was in 1997, 1987...)
Later this afternoon, a "meet and greet" session in the OTN lounge is on the schedule and then a customer meeting. Tomorrow is the really busy day - a keynote session in the morning as part of the IDevelop 'sub conference', another "no slide zone" talk in the afternoon and then finishing up with a regular session that evening.
Then, get on the plane to fly back home :)
So, what was the biggest surprise news so far? Oracle VM... I'm a huge fan of virtualization - have been for a long time. This is going to be cool.
