All day optimizer event....
To that end, I have two one day Optimizer classes scheduled this year (and more to follow next year!). The first one will be Wednesday November 20th in Northern California. You can find details for that here: http://www.nocoug.org/ .
The next one will be 5,500 miles (about 8,800 km) away in the UK - in Manchester. That'll take place immediately following the UKOUG technical conference taking place the first week of December on December 5th. You can see all of the details for that here: http://www.ukoug.org/events/tom-kyte-seminar-2013/
I know I'll be doing one in Belgrade early next year, probably the first week in April. Stay tuned for details on that and for more to come.
