Looking for ideas...
I use a couple of venues to generate new material, new talking material every year. Hotsos symposium has always been one, Oracle University Seminars have been another. Oracle OpenWorld is definitely one as well.
Well, believe it or not, it is time for me to submit my abstract for Oracle OpenWorld already - even though it is not until September. So, it is time to come up with yet another topic. I've been known to do a "top ten" style presentation for a while at OpenWorld - the last few years have been top tens on 9i Release 2, 10g Releases 1 and 2 and most recently - 11g Release 1. Intermixed with that was a database 'worst practices' presentation as well.
So, now - I'm looking for some fresh ideas. A topic that can be well covered in an hour and would have broad general appeal. In reality - if I get a couple of good ideas, I'll probably generate the material for all of them but just pick one (maybe two) for presentation at OpenWorld.
So, I invite you to submit an idea - doesn't have to be fully fleshed out - just a concept, something you would find useful at a venue such as OpenWorld (or a presentation to a user group - as this is where this material will be used time and time again...)
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
