Getting Ready for Oracle Open World

Has it really been February since my last blog entry ? That can't be right, but I can't argue with the timestamps.

I would like to thank those of you that check back on my blog, looking for new things. Now that the Oracle acquisition is complete and we've been working in our new organizations for a while, I should be much more active.

That brings me to the reason for the blog today, Oracle Open World starts in just a few days. I still hve a lot to get done before then, but I'm starting to look forward to the big kickoff at 5:30pm on Sunday, September 19.

There are a number of great Solaris session and demonstrations planned, many of them given by members of the US Solaris team in the North American Commercial Hardware pillar (check them out on my blogroll, over in the far right column).

I will be giving two different sessions this year: a Introduction to ZFS Hands on Lab plus a talk on Best Practices for Patching Solaris. If you are interested in attending either or both of these sessions, here are the details.

Session:136261 - Introduction to the ZFS File System (Hands on Lab)
When: Tuesday, Sep 20. 11am - noon
Location: Marriott Marquis, Nob Hill


Session:316255 - Patching Best Practices for the Oracle Solaris Operating System
When: Thursday, Sep 22. 1:30pm - 2:30pm
Location: Moscone South, Room 310

I hope that some of you can stop by and say hello. As soon as I'm finished with my presentation materials, I'll post them here for your reference. If there's any interest in the ZFS hands on lab, I can post that too - just let me know. That one is actually a lot of fun and works great in a VirtualBox guest.

Next week I hope to blog things I've learned in the keynotes and sessions. I will also be posting out notes on Twitter, if I can get any bandwidth with 43,000 people in attendance. Feel free to follow me on Twitter if you want to receive these updates.

If you are traveling to San Francisco for the conference, safe travels.

Bob,
Are you going to be at Open World 2012? Are you going to be presenting in any of the sessions?
Thanks!

Hi David,

Unfortunately, I did not know how to respond to your simple question, it was changing daily. In the end, I did not have a session and did not go this year. I'm hoping to get a couple of sessions lined up for next year.
