AIOUG Sangam 11

 Hi Guyzzz

Just back from AIOUG Sangam11. Wonderful effort, event, sessions and most important grrat stage to share with some great names. Arup Nanda, Murali Vallath, Kuassi Mensah and many more. Kudos to the arrangement and and event management too.

The Day 1 (9th Dec) started off with registration. Was glad to see our bags and great material. Saw Murali at the doorstep and the day started off.

Murali addressed the session and thanked the event management team and introduced Arup to kick off the session. Arup Nanda ‘The LONGTIME DBA’ was the Show Stopper of the whole event. And he should be !!

Rich Niemiec started off with a session on Rolta. He showed us some pics of Oracle Corp…was amazed to be the part of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arup started off with a session on Profiler in PL/SQL. Great sessions, great views and great information. Kuassi Mensah delivered a nice session on Oracle Net security. Murali too gave a presentation on RAC subject, but couldn’t catch up match as I have no background. Hemant came up with the day to day challenges of a DBA, their role and expectations. Fabulous !!

Day 2 (10th Dec) again saw a long session from Arup until Lunch. Superb stamina and grasp !! Got to know some new concepts on Cache fusion, DBA best practices, and introduced the logic behind Exdata. I could see the roadmap of DBA to DMA (Database Machine Administrator). Again a good one!!

Meanwhile I got introduced to Arup Nanda with a handshake and told him about myself. Told him about my online works and he asked me to get in touch for SELECT journal too. Nice chat time !!

Later I attended session by Hemant on Partitioning. Though it was an elementary one but enough to fill up 1 hour session. The next session by Prabhakar Gongloor was another masterpiece where he showed some screendumps of Oracle 12C. I believe we would be only of those few ones who could see it within 2 months of the version release. I could see him hiding something by saying its ‘Special Technique’ through which EM can connect to DB even if it is down (as far as I could understand).

As I referred one of my colleague for the seminar, I received a coupon worth INR500, redeemable on the same day against the books at the counter. I got one copy of Oracle XML DB.

The conference ended with photo sessions. I too got few with Arup, Bryn, Rich and Mensah. Soon I would publish on my blog. Received a Tshirt from OTN too.

Next year, it would be in August, 2012…I will be happy to volunteer the event and would surely like to see myself at the stage right there :)

Once again, Thanks Oracle, Thanks AIOUG !!

By for now
