ODTUG Kaleidoscope - The countdown begins...
As many of you know, ODTUG Kaleidoscope runs from June 21-25 in Monterey, California. Topics covered will range from Essbase and Hyperion, BI and Data Warehousing, SOA, BPM to my favorite, Application Express.
This year there are over 40+ APEX related presentations, a number of which will be presented by Oracle ACE and ACE DIRECTORS. Pretty exciting stuff if you're an APEX geek like me. But for me there are several things that will make this particular conference "special".
Of course, the opportunity to attend so many good sessions is high on my list, but I also get to see a number of people that I haven't seen for quite some time. I'm really looking forward to the APEX Meet-Up that John Scott is organizing.
But one thing that will be very different is that it will be my first conference as a partner in Sumner Technologies. As of June 1, 2009 I joined forces with Scott Spendolini to help broaden Sumner's offerings. And, not only will Sumner (Scott) be presenting, but we will also have a booth in the exhibitors area this year.
To coincide with all of this, we've just relaunched our website outlining our full range of course, services and software offerings.
On top of all of that, the 23rd of June is my 42nd Birthday. What a great opportunity to celebrate with all my APEX friends!
So, if you're there, stop by the booth and say "Hi". I look forward to seeing you all there.
