2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

TROUG at Oracle Day 2013 – Istanbul

As always, it is time for local Oracle Day events worldwide for the people who cannot made to Open World and would like to hear the summarisation of Open World. This year Oracle Day 2013 – Istanbul will be held in Istanbul Congress Center at 14th of November. Event main page and agenda is here. Thanks to Oracle Turkey for letting us present technically in TROUG stream in saloon 8.

It’s not only mine, but also attendees bad luck to have this presentation at the end of the day, but again, as in Open World, I will be speaking at the last session at 4:20 pm at the conference. Everybody would be hungry and I will talk about how to make a pizza… Challenging. 🙂

We, as TROUG, prepared a surprise for you this year, but you need to register and come to the event to see/get this surprise. I made some changes to one of my Open World session (CON4067 – Delicious, EDQ&OGG&ODI on Exadata for perfection) and will present it in Turkish. My co-speaker will be Okcan Yasin Saygili, working at Oracle Turkey and fellow from TROUG management team.

@OTNArchBeat interview during #OOW13

We had the interview with Bob Rhubart (@OTNArchBeat) during Oracle Open World 2013 (#OOW13) and we have talked about my first session “Delicious : Oracle Enterprise Data Quality, Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Data Integrator on Oracle Exadata for perfection”. And here it is.

#OOW13 is getting closer

Oracle Open World 2013 is less than a week away. This would be my 4th time for Open World (attending since 2010) and this conference it is really huge. Lots of sessions to pick from (my schedule) and tough job for social media. 🙂
For the first time of my Open World history, I will be presenting 2 sessions. Presentations are ready now (always need a final touch). Mark your calendars if you are interested not only in ODI, but also how ODI talks with Enterprise Data Quality, Oracle GoldenGate, Exadata.
Jerome Francoisse from RittmanMead will be my co-speaker and I think sessions would be so much fun and open for surprises. Continue reading

My Session Schedule for OOW13

I have prepared my session schedule for Open World 2013. Unlike last year, I am free almost every night. I haven’t been invited any evening events yet (except ACE Program). This means I am available for any invitations for evening time to have some beers. 🙂 Continue reading
