Sangam10 was better compared to Sangam09.. better attendance, well organized conference and no complains on food and water.
I had presented two sessions at Sangam10.. I did not do any RAC presentation during Sangam09, but several folks asked why I had not given a session. I followed the call for papers like others and was selected by the selection panel. Both my sessions were well attended.
Session 1. Think outside the interconnect when optimizing your RAC environment.
Kept the session of an interactive type. so that audience can get involved through the entire session. Was very well accepted and the received good feedback.
Session 2. 11gR2 New features for RAC.
Did not notice how fast the time went by.. when users get interactive and you get several questions time just flies by. Could not complete the entire presentation. I was only able to complete the new features for the clusterware. did not cover ASM and RDBMS new features. Maybe next time I do this topic, I will request for a longer duration.
Looking forward to Sangam11.. before that Oracle Open World 2010 is just around the corner. I will be giving two sessions at OOW this year.
1. Waits, Enqueues, and Latches in Oracle 11g RAC
2. The Oracle Database 11gR2 Result Cache in an Oracle RAC Environment
More updates on OOW later…
