Important Openworld schedule changes

With Oracle Openworld taking San Francisco by storm (65,000 rooms booked), this Oracle mega-conference can be a overwhelming and mind-boggling experience.  They even blocked-off a whole block of Howard street to accommodate the crowds and over 40,000 paid attendees are expected.

"In an incredible display of clout, the software company convinced the city of San Francisco to close a block-long stretch of a major downtown thoroughfare (Howard Street) for 10 full days to make room a tented food-service area immediately in front of the Moscone Center, where the conference is taking place.

Never before, at least in the memory of current officials, has the city every closed down a street near the convention center for such a long duration"

As Oracle collects attendance estimates from session attendees they will often change the rooms for sessions, and it's important to check the Openworld daily announcements for all room changes.

My session "Brain Cramps: How Simple Mistakes Can Cripple Your Database", had a huge wait-list and it has been moved from Moscone 304 to a much larger room, Moscone 102, and scheduled for Monday at 3:15 PM.

If you are attending OOW, I'd really like to hear meet you, and I'm bringing a suitcase full of free books for my readers.

I will also be presenting at the Texas Memory Systems book at the trade show gala open house on Monday from 5:00-6:30 PM.  If you are in the area but not enrolled in OOW, you can get a free "Oracle Openworld Visitor Plus Pass" to the open house.

Beside all the free booze, food and vendor goodies, don't miss the chance to hear Dr. Tim Hall, author of "Oracle Scheduling" and Oracle's 2006 ACE of the year.  Dr. Hall and other notable Oracle experts will be at the Texas Memory Systems booth for several appearances to speak and autograph free copies of their books and posters:

Monday 3:00 - 3:30 - Dr. Tim Hall - Oracle's ACE of the Year
Monday 4:30 - 5:30 - Don Burleson live
Monday 5:30 - 6:30 - John Garmany - Author of "Oracle Replication" and "Easy Oracle PL/SQL"

Tuesday 11:00 - 11:30 - Dr. Tim Hall - Oracle's ACE of the Year
Tuesday 11:30 - 12:00 - Don Burleson
Tuesday 4:00 - 4:30 - Dr. Tim Hall - Oracle's ACE of the Year
Tuesday 4:30 - 5:00 - John Garmany

Wednesday 2:00 - 3:00 - Steve Karam - Oracle ACE and OCM
Wednesday 3:00 - 4:00 - John Garmany
Wednesday 4:00 - 4:30 - Don Burleson


If you see me at OOW, please don't be shy!  Introduce yourself and say "Hi".
