Utah Oracle Users Group

Well.. my adventures continue. I’m in slighty cold Salt Lake City for UTOUG this week. Much better than the 90 degree weather back in Virgina though! This is my first visit to Utah, I wish I had more time to explore. Upon landing we had some time to kill so we rented a car and drove out to a huge hole in the ground called Bingham Canyon Mine, a HUGE open pit copper mine. 3/4 of a mile deep and 2 3/4 miles wide! Was definitely pretty cool (well at least I thought so…). Apparently you can even see it from space.

Have had a great conference so far. Today was pretty much a ‘Tom Kyte‘ day as the poor guy had a 2 hour session this morning that led right into a hour long keynote address. 3 hours in a row! I’m impressed. Good material though, I enjoyed learning about what Tom considers to be the best features in the 11gR2 database.

In addition to exhibiting and checking out a few sessions, I gave a session on DataZing today that was well received, even got some new ideas for some good enhancements as well. Looking forward to getting back and getting started on some new features. Tomorrow, Ben and I will be co-presenting on BI-Publisher. We have a 2 hour session so we will be tag-teaming the presentation. Ben will take the first hour and present on BIP and EBS and I’ll take the 2nd and present on BIP Enterprise. It will be very educational.

If you’re here at UTOUG, stop by and say hello, would love to meet you. Oh yeah, Happy Cinco de Mayo!
