RMOUG - Excellent Ending, Now on to Collaborate 2008 in Denver

RMOUG ended yesterday, it was an excellent conference. There were a lot of excellent presentations. Conference highlights for me include:
  • Rich Niemiec's presentation "All Uncommon Leaders" was one of the best presentations I've ever seen in my life. I've been going to business and technical conferences for about 15 years and listening to great speakers such as Gene Kranz (NASA flight director), Henry Kissinger, etc. and Rich is in the upper echelon of outstanding inspirational speakers. Way to go Rich!
  • There were excellent presentations on Fusion Middleware, APEX, XQuery, etc.
  • Congratulations to the speakers from Raytheon, every presentation I went to from the Raytheon team was outstanding.
  • Noticed significant change in trends in topics selected and focus of presenters. When you looked at the presentation topics and how full the rooms were, you were definitely able to see where the interest resides in the Oracle user community.
  • RMOUG continues to attract the top presenters in the industry, naming a few: Thomas Kyte, Jonathan Lewis (met for the first time), Peter Koletzke, Paul Dorsey, Tim Gorman, John King, Duncan Mills, Michael Ault, Steve Lemme, Don Burleson, etc. I don't mean to leave anyone out these are just the list of people I have seen speak in the last year. Speaking to any of these excellent speakers is definitely worth its weight in gold.
It just continues to boogle my mind that local companies do not send more people to conferences like RMOUG and the IOUG. With all the complexity of database and development environments it's amazing that companies will not send more employees to listen to the top industry leaders for a few hundred dollars. Oh well, it was a great conference for me.

    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.
