Upcoming Events...

I took some time off from the road at the beginning of 2014 - getting ready to get back on the road again, lots of trips scheduled from February till the end of June.  This is just looking at public events for the next three months, hope to see you at one of them!

Virtual Developer Day Feb 4th

I'll be speaking, along with Jonathan Lewis, about the last 20 years or so of technology and where we think it is all going as part of the Virtual Developer Day - an entirely online event with many technical speakers.  Something to definitely look into!

RMOUG Feb 6th-7th

At the beginning of February, I'll be at RMOUG Feb 6th and 7th.  Truth be told, this won't be a trip for me - I'm located in Denver, CO now (since the beginning of the year).  I will just be returning from Toronto at the beginning of the week (I know all of the best places to go in February!).

Ohio Feb 11th-13th

Of course, if it is February - it must be Ohio.  That is the best place to fly into and then drive around in during that month :)  I'll be coming down from Ottawa (another 'must see' location in February) and spending Feb 11th in Dayton, Feb 12th in Cincinnati and the 13th in Columbus.  Hitting all of the user groups across the state.

Real World Performance Netherlands, Germany and Bulgaria Feb 18th-21st

Then I'm off to continue the Real World Performance tour with Andrew Holdsworth and Graham Wood.  This month we are hitting the town of Breda in the Netherlands on the 17th, Munich in Germany on the 18th and finally Sofia in Bulgria on the 21st.

Hotsos Symposium Mar 3-6th

If it is March, then it is definitely time for the annual Hotsos Symposium.  I'll be returning this year with a few sessions.  It should be nice and warm in Dallas in March!

Ireland March 11th-12th

I'll be in Ireland on March 11th for the Ireland OUG conference.  I'll be speaking on performance and the new In-Memory capabilities coming in Oracle Database soon.  On the 12th - I'll be delivering a one day Optimizer Master Class.

Real World Performance London and Latvia

The tour continues with a date of March 26th in London and March 28th in Riga Latvia.  

Belgrade Serbia, April 1st-2nd

I'll post more details when I have them, but I'll be doing a two day seminar on the optimizer and developer related topics at this time.  It will be in conjunction with Oracle University so you can monitor their event website for information soon too.

IOUG Collaborate April 7th-11th

I'll be doing a one day optimizer seminar and four other sessions during the week.  April in Las Vegas - perfect time to be there!  And Admin Savage will be speaking too - love the mythbusters!

Oracle Conference on the James, April 24th

I'll be doing a keynote and a technical session in the morning of the 24th for the VOUG and HROUG.  Lots of great speakers here - definitely check this out if you are in the Virginia area!

Manila, Philippines - week of April 28th

I'll be doing some events in Manila this week - details to follow soon!

Its very glad that your posted your schedule here. Two questions

1) from your schedule we can infer that there will be too much delay (may be a Week or so) from you in answering questions in Asktom ;)

2)But why "Where is Tom?" calender in AskTom is not visible now? is that completely removed?

1) I answer when I have time (I do other things, not just travel :) )

2) I just need to get in and fill it - I did the blog post yesterday, no I have to transcribe that to the calendar in asktom!

I've heard about changes in Denver in January - but that was a different topic.

Changing your location does also mean changing your scope of functions within Oracle Corp. ? Are we allowed to hear more about that ?

No, the move doesn't change what I do. I'm still "asktom" and the Product Manager for the optimizer (something I picked up last year).

with what I do, I can live anywhere I want as long as it is near a major airport :)

I didn't know that you have taken Maria's job.

I liked her "Insights into the workings of the Optimizer" on

Can we expect a continuation of this series ?
