Great Lakes Oracle Conference GLOC May 12-14
Each Oracle Users Group has its own personality. This week I had the honor to co-speak with Mauro Pagano at GLOC, and the experience has been great! We delivered a 4 hours workshop on “Oracle Performance Tuning 101″. We talked about fundamentals and tools of the trade for both Database and SQL Tuning. It was really nice to have over 50 attendees and it was a challenge to keep them engaged for such a long time! Still the feedback was: we want more!
Anyways, as I am listening to Tom Kyte speaking about the new Oracle In-memory Database, I take a moment to write some words about this GLOC. What can I say? In short: It has been awesome! This Oracle Users Group is well organized and growing slowly for surely (over 300 attendees). This is my second year speaking at GLOC and I see it bigger, better and very welcoming. As far as I understand, membership is inexpensive and still manages to attract such good speakers as Tom Kyte, Alex Gorbachev, Scott Spendolini, Tim Gorman, Kyle Hailey, Steven Feuerstein, Carol Dacko, Ric Van Dyke and many others. My kudos to GLOC. Way to go! Looking forward to contribute again next year, and hoping to see more speakers and attendees traveling from other Regions.
