Oracle OpenWorld 2010 - Day 1
It was the first day of OOW-2010. I attended the following sessions: 1) Oracle Indexing Tips, Tricks, and Traps by Richard Foote 2) Tuning Oracle at the Block Level--Beginners, Go Away! by Rich Niemiec 3) Resolving the Free Buffer Waits Event by Craig Shallahammer 4) Oracle Recovery Manger (RMAN) 11g New Features in Release 1 and Release 2 by Michael All the sessions were extremely good but if I had to choose the best from the above four, I would choose Craig's session. It was awesome. I actually felt myself inside the SGA, watching buffers moving and background/server processes working. At the end of the day it was Oracle ACE dinner. I got to meet all the industry experts under a single roof. Iggy Fernandez then dropped me to my hotel. I am too tired and got to take some rest as I got to start early tomorrow morning again.
