Day 2 of Oracle OpenWorld 2013 September 23rd

Oracle OpenWorld started yesterday and San Francisco is just buzzing with Oracle folks and the excitement generated by the new Oracle Database In-Memory announcements made by Larry Ellison during last nights keynote!

If you are attending the conference don't miss the opportunity to chat with the Optimizer development team at one of our technical sessions or at the Oracle Demo grounds.

Our first technical session, Oracle Optimizer: What’s New in Oracle Database 12c? Session CON8622 is on today at 3:15pm in Moscone North, room 131.

This session provides a deep-dive explanation of how the new adaptive approach to query optimization works. We will use a real-world demo to show the different components of the adaptive model and how they help the optimizer learn additional information during query execution that can be used to improve not only the performance of the current SQL statement but all statements.

Members of the Optimizer team will also be available from 9:30am to 6pm at the demogrounds, to answer any Optimizer questions you might have. This may also be your last change to snag the limited edition Optimizer bumper stickers!
