I would like to think that anyone reading my newsletter, anyone engaged in Oracle development of any sort, would be well aware of ODTUG's annual Kaleidoscope conference. ODTUG is one of my favorite user group organizations, and not just because they have sponsored an annual Oracle PL/SQL conference for the last five years. In this era of "monster" conferences, like Oracle Open World, ODTUG has maintained its focus on developers and its intimate engagement between participants and speakers. If you can only attend one conference this year, I strongly encourage you to consider Kaleidoscope11.
Tom Kyte, Senior Technical Architect at Oracle Corporation, will be presenting Efficient PL/SQL - Why and How to Use PL/SQL to Its Greatest Effect and A Lot about Binding. I'll be presenting as
well, on Best Practices for PL/SQL Development in APEX. Click here for a full list of database development sessions.
In addition to these sessions, Tom,Cary Millsap of Method-R Corporation, and I will participate in a ninety-minute interactive panel discussion on database performance, coding excellence, and performance optimization. With more than thirty-five Oracle ACE Directors presenting at Kscope11, participants will have the opportunity to meet and talk with experts from around the world. Other highlights include five full-day symposiums, an opening keynote by Joey Asher, author of Even a Geek Can Speak, and the grand
event on board the famous Queen Mary. All sessions, symposiums, hands-on training, and events are included in the registration fee.
And to express their undying devotion to the PL/SQL community, ODTUG has graciously offered a $100 discount off the registration fee to all PL/SQL developers. Simply enter "PLSQL" for the discount code when you register.
Hope to see you there!
