Oracle OpenWorld 2015 : Tuesday

The day started in the normal way, with a quick blog post about the previous day and a visit to the gym.

The original plan for the day was to hit the demo grounds again. I popped into OakTable World for the quick chat with a few folks and ended up staying for quite while. I watched some of the Ted-style talks, specifically Tim Gorman, Jonathan Lewis and Martin Klier. I then got chatting to some folks outside, before heading back in to see Gwen Shapira do a session on Kafka.

Connecting Hadoop and Oracle

Here are the slides of my yesterday’s OakTableWorld presentation. They also include a few hints about what our hot new venture Gluent is doing (although bigger annoucements come later this year).

Oracle OpenWorld 2015 : Monday

Monday started with a trip to the gym, where I met Scott Spendolini. At the end on the session, we were sitting on bikes next to each other chatting, whilst peddling at an incredibly slow rate. After getting cleaned up, we headed over to Lori’s Diner and ate more calories than be burned at the gym. :)

Oracle OpenWorld 2015 : User Group Sunday

My wake up times are getting gradually later and later. That’s a good thing for now, but will make the journey home harder. :)

The day started with a bit of work on those articles I mentioned yesterday, with the inevitable trip to Lori’s Diner for breakfast of course.

Oracle OpenWorld 2015 : Day Off

You might have guessed from my last post, I was feeling a little bit deflated (insert fat joke here) yesterday morning.

I cheered myself up by spending the day in my hotel room doing installations. :)

On Friday evening the new Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 stack was released, so spent the day playing with it. I’ve written some articles, but they will need some tidying up when I get home. There are definitely some things I want to change.

Cloud Perspective: Cool New Stuff or Same Old Stuff ?

Is “The Cloud” Cool New Stuff or is it the Same Old Stuff ?

Cloud is upon us! Everywhere you turn vendors are offering cloud solutions promising (once-again) a single solution to solve the ills of our IT organizations.

Bah! Some naysayers say “this is just the same-old, same-old, we’ve been doing the cloud for years” – hmmmm is this really true?
