I've traveled and spoken on Oracle all around the world at many events but this year will be my first at ODTUG (June 15th-19th). I'm looking forward to both the technical and the non-technical aspects of the conference. New Orleans is somewhere that I haven't visited in 15 years and I'm happy to be one of the nearly-75 strong ODTUG Brigade volunteering for a day of community service work to give back to the city that has given so much to music lovers and so many others like me.
The conference is packed with keynotes and sessions, I'm going to be presenting two:
Who Moved My Code? - Team Development in Oracle JDeveloper on Wednesday 8.00-9.00am
Seven Secrets (and more) of Successful JDeveloper Database Designers on Wednesday 2.45-3.45pm
Both of these will be predominantly demo driven sessions. In the first Lynn Munsinger will be joining me so we can demo multi-developer tips and tricks using Subversion. The Seven Secrets will focus on existing and new features for database development and visualization for application developers. I'm hoping also to squeeze in a sneak preview of a project I'm working on around Application Lifecycle Management. Please join me if you are at ODTUG as I would welcome your feedback.
Our Usability Research Team is running some feedback sessions that Lynn, Grant Ronald and myself will be attending, be sure and sign up for one of those. Plus, if you want to talk to us about any aspect of JDeveloper we will be in the exhibit halls ready and willing to demo and discuss.
Finally, I hear there is a ODTUG Jam Session and I'm pretty sure I wont be able to resist!
