We typically have 2 presentations at each Meetup and on 11th May we have:

1. Oracle Analytics Cloud Service.

Oralce Analytics Cloud Service was only released a few weeks ago and we some local people who have been working with the beta and early adopter releases. They will be giving us some insights on this new product and how it compares with other analytics products like Oracle Data Visualization and OBIEE.

Running Oracle DataGuard on RAC on Oracle 12c

The second presentation will be on using Oracle DataGuard on RAC on Oracle 12c. We have a very experienced DBA talking about his experiences of using these products how to workaround some key bugs and situations to be aware of for administration purposes. Lots of valuable information to be gained.

Check out the full agenda and to register for the Meetup by clicking on this link or on the Meetup image above.

There will be some food and refreshments available for you to enjoy.

The Meetup will be in Bank of Ireland, Grand Canal Dock. This venue is a very popular locations for Meetups in Dublin.

NOTE:The User Group has a rule that a presenter can have a max of 2 presentations. Unfortunately we had to break this rule a week out from the conference, due to some cancellations. And that is why I’ve ended with 2.5 presentations.

Book give away at OUG Ireland

Posted on

The annual Oracle User Group in Ireland conference is on the 19th March in Croke Park.

I’ll be giving 2 presentations, with one each on the Development and Business Analytics tracks. Here are the details of these presentations.

table.myTable { border-collapse:collapse; } table.myTable td, table.myTable th { border:1px solid black;padding:5px; }

Time Room Presentation Title / Topic
14:00-14:45 InterConnect 681 Predictive Queries in Oracle 12c
16:00-16:45 Davin Suite Running R in the Database using Oracle R Enterprise

I will be giving away a copy of my book to one luck person ๐Ÿ™‚

How will this book give away work?

During both of my presentations I will pass around a “hat” for you to put your name or business card into. Then at end of my last presentation we will draw one name out of the hat.

But you have to be in the room to collect the book. If you are not there then I will draw out another name (and so on) until the winner is in the room.

So by attending both of my presentations you are doubling your chances of winning my book.

(Maybe this is an attempt by me to have a good attendance at my last presentation)

Plus I might have a few other Oracle Press goodies to give away too.

Oracle ACEs at OUG Ireland 2015

The annual Oracle User Group in Ireland Conference will be on Thursday 19th March. This year the conference will be held in the Croke Park conference centre. This conference centre is only a short taxi ride from Dublin Airport and Dublin City Centre.

If you are planning a hotel stay for the conference I would recommend staying in a hotel in the city centre and get a taxi to/from the conference venue.

and the submission webpage can be found here.

Ougire15 hp cfp v2

The OUG Ireland conference will be on Thursday 19th March. Yes it is only a one day conference ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but we will be 5 or 6 or more streams. So there will be something for everyone and plenty of choice.

On Friday 20th March we will have Maria Colgan, formally the Optimizer Lady and now the In-Memory Queen (or something like that), giving a full day workshop on the In-Database option and the Optimizer. She will also be about for the main conference on the 19th, so you can expect a presentation or two from her on the Thursday.

Agenda selection day is the 8th January, 2015. So hopefully you will be getting the acceptance emails soon after that or during week of 12th January.

There is a committee of about 10 people who are involved in selecting presentations and setting the agenda. If it was up to me then I would accept everything/everyone. So if your presentation is not accepted this time, please don’t blame me ๐Ÿ™‚ I said YES to your presentation, I really, really did. I fought so hard to have your presentation included. If your presentation is not accepted then the blame is down to the other committee members ๐Ÿ™‚

The conference will be held in Croke Park, and is a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the Airport.
