Oracle Open World 2009 - San Francisco Tueday October 13, 2009

It's definitely a batten the hatches day in San Francisco.  The weather is dark, gloomy, rainy and windy.  However all the positive energy of the conference is the shining light.

Oracle commercials are fantastic, very funny yet are doing a great job of getting business message across.

Networking - Fantastic to get insights, perspectives, best practices, lessons learned, war stories, trends from industry leaders.  Individual meetings are as valuable as sessions.  Understanding how to network at conference is so important.  My number one advice for networking success is to always pay it forward.

PHP is now in the enterprise and has Oracle's attention.  Oracle is going to invest more and more in PHP.  PHP is now in the enterprise and is now one of top three most popular programming languages.   Oracle's doing things like leveraging PHP performance with Times Ten.  Oracle is also investing more in Python and Ruby.

Cloud is virtualization, software, provisioning and platform as a service.  Customers are looking at public, hybrid and private clouds.

Daily agenda:
  • Sun Second Life meeting - Digitial Quicksand - Time Draining Habits in a Web 2.0 world.
  • Keynote: Thomas Kurian - The Fusion message, importance of SOA/Web 2.0 apps to solve business challenges of disparate systems.  ADF interfaces with WebCenter, very impressive.  Active Data Guard in 11gR2 looks really good.
  • Keynote:  The Future of Enterprise Computing
  • Meetings
  • Hidden Gems of Oracle Data Pump
  • Rein in the Chaos and Stop the Sprawl
  • Bloggers meetup
Evening ended with NetApps party, then the bloggers event.   Bloggers event went really well.  Wrapped up the evening with a great dinner at Houston's.  Went to bed early, "You can't soar with the eagles if you hoot with the owls".

    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.
