Oracle with 20:20 Foresight Perth Australia was awesome

Perth is far from everywhere, but not far from the Oracle technologies. Passion, knowledge, and urge to share the experience, skills, tips and knowledge brought people from across the planet to gather under one roof and learn, educate and network under the banner of Oracle with 20:20 Foresight.

The event was organized by the Australian Oracle User Group with many other sponsors and exhibitors and was a explosion of innovation. Where there is Oracle on this planet, Pythian is there, rest assured. We presented three papers during this mega conference in West of Australia. Yury Velikanov presented on Direct NFS, and I presented on Exadata Patching and Oracle IORM in Exadata. Pythian’s Warren Adkins was also present during the event.

The sessions by Tom Kyte, Malenie Caffrey, Connor McDonald, Peter Sharman, Martin Power and Paul Geurin were few of the many great presenters. From pluggable databases to Oracle Data Archive, and from R12 migrations to Exadata, the conference had everything for everyone. It also supported the great cause of cancer council in Western Australia and the passion for it was great too.
