Speaking at the Oracle User Group Norway 2013 Spring Conference   Leave a comment

Between April 17th  and April 19th   I was invited to participate the Oracle User Group Norway 2013 conference by giving three presentations. This conference was held  in Oslo  Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel on the first day (April 17th), and then was moved to the Color Major Cruise ship Between Oslo, Norway and Kiel , Germany on the second day (April 18th)  and the third day (April 19th).

The conference was one of the best organized conferences I have ever seen. The conference organizers really have done the great job to make this conference such an great experience. There were about three hundred peoples attending the conference, most from Norway plus more than 30 speakers from all over the world. Among them there are many industry well-known speakers such as Tom Kyte ,  Cary Millsap , Kuassi Mensah, Bryn Llewellyn,  etc  .The topics covered many areas in Oracle Technology, ranging from Oracle Database and MySQL core technology for DBAs, database  and applications tuning, BI/DWH, Development, Middleware and Security. From these sessions,  the audiences and speakers can really share and exchange the experiences.  It also covered some topics on the Oracle 12c database such as portable database, new high availability features, new security feature. My three presentation topics were:

During these sessions, I had some great discussions with people on the sessions. One thing I really appreciated is that many people attended my PCIe SSD session by giving up the opportunity of sightseeing in the beautiful Germany port city Kiel as this SSD session happened to be  in middle of short time when the cruise ship stayed in Kiel and allowed people to have a short sightseeing in the city.

This trip was also my first time of visiting Norway. I really enjoyed visiting many beautiful sighseeing places in Oslo: the Royal Palace Oslo, Akershus Fortress, Oslo City Hall, Opera House, Norway National Theater, Aker Brygge/Oslo Fjord waterfront area . The nice thing about visiting Oslo is that all of these major tourism attractions were within the walking distance of the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel. For this I really want to thank the conference organizer for arranging such a great hotel at the very convenient location.

From the Cruise Line, I was able to see many  breath-taken views of the sea port of Oslo and many small islands floating around outside of the port. What incredible views!

It has been a great learning opportunity for me through many discussions on my sessions and as well as by attending other speaker’s sessions. The conference has been a great experience to meet the friends and share experiences with the colleagues in this part of the world. By having a chance to get to know the people and colleagues that are working on the same area, we can expect more collaborations and knowledge sharing to continue after the conference.

I will really look forward to coming back again next year or in future  to participate the conference.
