Today I am traveling to Raleigh, North Carolina for the East Coast Oracle conference. Very excited to be part of this conference, as I have activities planned for all three days. This is the first time attending and presenting at ECO.

Though I attended OOW14, ECO14 will be the conference after GLOC14 (Great Lakes Oracle Conference – May 2014) where I present.

Monday Nov 3: I am truly excited to help Eric Benner to organize the #RACATTACK event – “RAC Attack Isn’t Just about RAC“. RAC Attack is a wonderful and creative effort by the experts in RAC to get everyone have hands on experience with RAC installation and configuration. This is great. Even if you are not able to make to any of the user group conferences and try out RAC Attack, I encourage you to download the RAC Attack Wiki book and start setting up your RAC on the laptop using Virtual Machine.

Tuesday Nov 4: I am presenting at 3:15 on “Flashback Instead of Restore… Save Time and Be a Hero!”. Here I will be taking about the various flashback features of the database since 9i and how a developer, power user or DBA can retrieve past state of data (table) without much recovery effort. Though this presentation was very late addition due to a cancellation, I am sure I will have something for you no matter what your role is – power user, developer, DBA or Manager!

Wednesday Nov 5: I will be presenting right after the keynote by Floyd Teter on “Lesser Known New Features of Oracle Database 12c“. Though I titled it “new features”, Oracle 12c was released over a year ago, so most people are familiar with the top features of 12c. I will be concentrating on the changes and quick benefits you as an 11g DBA can take from upgrading to 12c. You might also take home a copy of my “OCA: Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate Study Guide: Exams 1Z0-061 and 1Z0-062” book!

The timing of my article in North California Oracle User Group (NoCOUG) Journal is perfect, where I discussed few of the Oracle Database 12c features. The session on Wed will be talking about a lot more!

There are several great presentations in the agenda. Please review the list of presentations here… If you are in the North Carolina neighborhood, do not miss the opportunity to listen to many great speakers.

The conference registration and agenda are available at

I am also excited and happy that OneNeck is sponsoring the event and is an exhibitor!

See you in Raleigh!
