    Podcast Show Notes: Phoenix Architect Day Panel Discussion

    The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast features a three-part series recorded during the panel discussion conducted at OTN Architect Day in Phoeniz, AZ on December 14, 2011. 

    Listen to Part 1
    Listen to Part 2
    Listen to Part 3

    These panel discussions are a fixture of the Architect Day events, and feature all speakers from all of the day's sessions.  The panel responds to questions from the audience, either submitted in writing, or, as you'll hear, shouted out during the discussion.

    The following panelists participated in the event in Phoenix:

    • Ralf Dossmann LinkedIn
    • Ron Batra Oracle ACE Director
    • Randy Stafford LinkedIn
    • Scott Mattoon LinkedIn
    • Adeesh Fulay LinkedIn
    • Dave Chappelle LinkedIn
    • Ronen Kofman LinkedIn
    • Jeff Davies LinkedIn
    • Anbu Krishnaswamy LinkedIn

    I'd like to thank all of the speakers for their fine work during this event, and send a very special thank you out to Oracle enterprise as moderator for the panel discussion, and as MC for the entire day. 

    You'll find links to the slide decks from all of the day's sessions here: OTN Architect Day Presentations - Phoenix, AZ - December 14, 2011

    The photos on the right were taken during the roundtable sessions that end each Architect Day event.

    Many thanks to the great crowd that turned out for the Phoenix event -- and stuck around for the entire day.

    More Architect Day events are planned for the spring. More info as it is available. 

    Coming Soon

    Next up on the OTN ArchBeat Podcast, Bob Hensle and Scott Mattoon offer background and insight into two new Oracle resources designed to make those first steps into cloud migration the right steps.
