A Day of Real World Performance Raffle...

If you haven't heard - I'm participating in a series of seminars entitled "Real World Performance". It is a rather unique forum - with three simultaneous presenters and three screens. I find it more interesting than a seminar delivered by a single person - all day long. We haven't had anyone fall asleep yet - there is enough moving around and back and forth on the stage to keep you engaged all day long.

To get things jump started, I'm running a raffle of sorts. I'm going to give away the coolest t-shirt you'll ever own:

and a signed copy of

All you have to do is to sign up for the Real World Performance Day and select "Tom Kyte's Blog" from the "How did you hear about this event" element on the registration form. I'll be sending out a t-shirt and signed book to the first ten people that sign up this way. I'll be sending them out at the end of August. Apologies in advance to Germany, Australia and Scotland Real World participants - they are using a different registration system and I won't be able to track your sign-ups.

Here's a list of some podcasts we've done on the RWP tour - please listen to
get an idea of what takes place:

Tom Kyte, Oracle performance specialist and Host of
"AskTom.Oracle.Com" tells us what's in store at The IOUG's Real
World Performance Day.

Andy Flower, President of the Independent Oracle Users Group
(IOUG), discusses plans for COLLABORATE 11 and what folks can
expect when the Real World Performance Tour rolls to their town.

Hope to see you at one of them - we'll be doing more locations next year so if you don't see a city near you - they might still be on the drawing board.

Scotland is not listed in the IOUG registration overview but Germany. Is Frankfurt/Germany also not tracked?

Frankfurt is using the same registration system as far as I know - so it should be OK for that.

You can register for Australia

and Scotland

Just booked for Frankfurt but I was not able to select your blog. Only "Others" was available + I entered a remark in a text field in case it is tracked.

@Anonymous -

the events outside of the US are doing their own registration - Germany included apparently!

Sorry about that, I won't have any way to track that.

But - if you come up to me in Germany and identify yourself - I'll try to make sure you get a t-shirt at least :)

the T-shirt is looking great

just checked the registration for Frankfurt and, hey, the price is ok, so please reserve me one as well (XL should fit me)

I don't have time to listen to the presentation though, so please hand it out to me before that, thanks in advance !

if I can get a signed book as well, i wouldn't say no (doubt I will read it but it will look ok on the shelf)

The Real World Performance Day was great. Three presenters - roles - screens made the event entertaining but also very instructive. Thanks to all.
