As always there is a great list of upcoming conferences to look at for the upcoming year. On my wish list is:
- RMOUG - Training Days - Denver, CO, February 10 - 12, 2009
- MySQL - MySQL Conference, Santa Clara, CA, April 20 - 23, 2009
- IOUG - Collaborate 2009, Orlando, FL, May 3 - 7, 2009
- JavaOne - JavaOne Conference, San Francisco, CA, June 2 - 5, 2009
- Oracle - Openworld 2009 - San Francisco, CA, October 11-15, 2009
I have not attended presentations at all the local user group conferences but the following is a list of users conferences I have attended that were excellent.
- Houston Oracle Users Group
- Dallas Oracle Users Group
- Northern California Oracle Users Group
I can't recommend highly enough to get involved in your local technical user groups and start getting involved.
