E4 Day 1
I am attending E4. What is E4? Well, it is Enkitec’s annual conference on Exadata. To me, it is a professional forum to share knowledge on Exadata and related topics. This year the attendees are about 150 in-person and about 100 remotely. A good size for a successful and cozy conference. What I like about E4 is that it focuses on technical issues skipping all the marketing and sales stuff. A technical conference for technical people. Another important characteristic is the environment: relaxed, open, positive, camaraderie, etc. So, if you missed E4 this year, plan ahead to attend next year!
On E4 day 1, we had great speakers and cool topics. Just take a look at the agenda. What I liked most about all speakers was that all have been down to earth. I enjoy learning from the best of the field within this kind of framework.
Exadata is captivating (complex, challenging, rewarding, etc.). I also learned yesterday about Tableau, which I will test with SQLTXPLAIN data out of SQLDX (ASH).
