This email gem was a great way to start a Monday morning (after my first four-day weekend in years, no less):
“Congratulations! Your session proposal, 775 DBA 3.0 or “How to Become an Real-World Exadata DBA”, was accepted by the IOUG Conference Committee.
COLLABORATE 15 – IOUG Forum will take place from April 12-16, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.”
Obviously, this is a really cool thing. It’s a big honor as it’s the largest Oracle user group there is and I’m really excited about it.
Bizarrely, though, it’ll be my first “public” presentation as a DBA. I’m skipping “baby steps” altogether and going straight into presenting in front of (some, hopefully) super-smart boffins … in Las Vegas.
I’d better start thinking of a comedy routine to distract people … !
