I will be doing a lot of (Exadata) talking and teaching in the coming months. Here’s a list of events where you’ll see me speaking, teaching, hacking, learning and hopefully also drinking beer:

- This is the first ever public delivery of my new Getting the Most Out of Oracle’s Active Session History, Time Model and Wait events seminar!

- First public delivery of this class – and we’ll be going very deep into Exadata internals and performance ;-)

- I will attend the ACE Directors briefing before the conference, likely speak, hang out at Enkitec booth, probably hack something at Enkitec’s Conference HQ for fun and definitely drink beer there. Maybe I’ll even attend the Wednesday’s party for a change!
As you see, my great plans to not travel much are not going to work out well :)
Actually it is better, this year I’ve managed to only travel twice so far (and one of the trips was for vacation!) and I haven’t had to do too many of the crazy around-the-world in 5 days trips I did when living in back Singapore… but looks like I’ll get to 2 million km nevertheless this year:
Well, see you in some corner of the world some day!
NB! If you want to move to the "New World" - offload your data and workloads to Hadoop, without having to re-write your existing applications - check out Gluent. We are making history! ;-)
