RMOUG 2008: MySQL and Oracle Fusion Middlware Presentations

I gave two presentations at RMOUG this year. I have retired from doing presentations at technical conferences but I had to pay a debt for crashing the RMOUG party last year. Doing a presentation was the price I had to pay. :) In all honesty, I really just wanted to help to contribute to the RMOUG because they are an excellent local Oracle user group and I wanted to help support them in any way possible. RMOUG gives out some of the coolest shirts, so I may try to come back next year to get one of the cool volunteer shirts they gave out to everyone.

My two presentations were on:
Understanding the MySQL Architecture for Oracle DBAs
  • This is a fast paced presentation focused on showing Oracle DBAs and Developers key features and benefits of using MySQL and the LAMP stack for projects. Topics will focus on: best practices for configuring a MySQL database server, understanding key differences between Oracle and MySQL and OFA versus MOCA. Attendees will also be introduced to MySQL replication and Cluster configurations. This is an excellent bootstrap presentation for developers and DBAs that may be looking at using MySQL and the LAMP stack for future projects.
  • Audience: Developers and DBAs
  • Summary: A bootstrap presentation focused on showing Oracle DBAs and developers key features of MySQL and the LAMP stack.
Demystifying Middleware Technologies
  • This presentation is designed to demystify popular Middleware technologies and explain how these technology components work together. Topics include: J2EE, Application Servers, Web Services, XML, Application Frameworks, WSDL, BPEL, SOA and business rule engines. Attendees will learn how each of these different Middleware components work together in application servers. This is an important presentation for developers and DBAs who would like to learn more about the middle-tier.
There is a podcast summary of the Demystifying Middleware Technologies presentation at Go to this site and then select Oracle Podcasts.

I really enjoyed giving both of these presentations. I always shoot from the hip when I give presentations and let my mood and the mood of the audience determine the focus of the presentation. The MySQL presentation got a lot of enthusiasm from the Oracle DBAs because whenever I discuss the MySQL database server, Oracle DBAs are always really surprised by how much it can do and why it is growing in popularity. So this presentation was very upbeat and high energy. The Middleware presentation was more of a fireside chat on what are important things to understand about middleware technology that is not in the documentation and in the books but you really need to understand.

I thank the attendees who laughed at my jokes even when they weren't funny. :)

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
