Oracle Open World 2009 - San Francisco Sunday October 11, 2009

Great day at Oracle Open World:
  • Stopping by and visiting IOUG booth.  They are giving away Tips Booklet.
  • Developing Rich Internet Applications and Rich Enterprise Applications with Oracle ADF Faces    
  • Oracle Fusion Development Experience: An Oracle Application Development Framework Overview    
  • Introduction to Storing, Indexing, and Querying XML with Oracle XML Database I
  • Introduction to Storing, Indexing, and Querying XML with Oracle XML Database II
  • High-Performance Database Applications Using Oracle In-Memory Database Cache   Scott McNealy, 
  • Meeting with friends for coffee before ACEs dinner
  • Oracle ACEs dinner
  • Probably won't be able to attend the open receptions but that's okay.
Hands on labs were of extreme high quality, well organized and put together well.   I really got a lot of value out of the ADF and XML hands on labs.   I enjoyed them so much I'm having a hard time stopping myself from going back to hotel and playing with 11gR2  ADF and XML new features.   :)

Keynote with Scott McNealy, James Gosling, John Fowler and Larry Ellison was excellent.  Highly recommend you watch the online version of this.  Oracle spending over 3 billion on research and development.  Combine Oracle's budget on R&D and combine that with Sun's R&D budget and its going to create an incredible R&D environment.

Highlights of Larry Ellison during keynote:
  • SPARC is a incredible technology.
  • MySQL competes in different market. Oracle will spend more on developing MySQL.  MySQL does not compete against Oracle.
  • Sun solution offers 25% better throughput with 16x better performance response time versus IBM.
  • Sun hardware/software with Oracle software is a great combination.
  • IBM is NOT very green compared to Sun.
Scott discussed top ten innovations he is proud of:
  • NFS/PC-NFS Technology 
  • SPARC chip
  • Sun was open source before open source was cool.  
  • Solaris combining  BSD + UNIX System 5 was the solution to beat.
  • Java
  • ZFS
  • Open Storage
  • E10K - 64-way Solaris4. 
  • Project Blackbox -  datacenter on wheels
  • SunRay
  • Flash
  • Chip multithreading "CoolThreads"

    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.
