Virtualization is important and Dave Welch from the House of Brick gave a great presentation of experiences with VMWare and Tier 1 databases. It was a comprehensive presentation, but the white paper was easier to follow. The slides were complete but the volume of information was a lot for an hour presentation. Well worth the time though.
Utah Oracle User Group (UTOUG) announced a call for Fall Symposium papers today. The Fall Symposium will be in Salt Lake City on 9/6/2012. If you’re interested in presenting on Oracle or MySQL, the call for presentations will be open until 6/15/2012.
The conference party was tonight, and it provided some nice orderves and pizza. The theme was a return to 1980s music, and some folks really dressed their parts. You can listen to a short snapshot of the band by clicking the image to launch a small video segment.
I’m looking forward to the APEX Behind the Scenes presentation at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow. When the conference is over, I won’t miss the smoke filled air that we walk through from the Luxor to the Mandalay. It’s really amazing that the complex is more than a mile in length. It runs from the Luxor to the Mandalay South Conference Center.
