Oracle Event – The DOAG Conference in Nuremberg, Germany
December 1, 2010
The DOAG Conference (German Oracle Users Group) in Nuremberg, Germany is one of the largest gatherings for Oracle and their partners from all over the world. And this year’s event, held from November 16-18th was no exception.
When we received our invitation, we jumped at this excellent opportunity.
2010 DOAG Conference
The 2010 DOAG conference was a perfect chance for us to learn more about Oracle products, solutions and services directly from the headquarters in the USA, as well as from the German-speaking, European and international Oracle markets.
Also, we always strive to keep up-to-date with the latest technological advancements – be it SAP-related or not – in order to present you with the most innovative and technologically sound products.
Take a moment to watch this film for an impression of what was to be expected.
Our team members were really impressed by the line-up of keynote speakers and the extensive presentation selection. With more than 400 presentation slots happening in a space of only 3 days, our team was spoiled for choice. In order to keep the around 2000 exhibition participants “entertained”, a broad spectrum of topics were covered relating to all Oracle products; e.g. database, infrastructure, development and management.
The highlight for our team was undoubtedly the presentation “Coding Therapy for Software Developers” by Orcale ACE Director, Steven Feuerstein (PL/SQL evangelist and author of numerous PL/SQL books). Mr. Feurstein clearly pointed out the relevance of social skills in software developing, such as simply asking for help – an attribute that is overseen by many developers. Take a look at Steven’s blog when you get a chance.
Also interesting was the topic,” Many Surprises and Developments are Imminent…” addressed by Prof. Hermann Maurer (Institute of Information Systems and Computer Media (IICM) Technical University Graz). In this presentation we learnt why, in the future, the technological developments in many domains will be even faster and much more surprising than we would assume.
Global Solutions Architect, Brian Oliver presented a very interesting session called, “The Science and Physics of Application Performance and Scalability”. Brian pointed out that databases are still very relevant and irreplaceable as most functionalities will always be of value.
Visiting the DOAG Conference this year proved an optimal opportunity to enlarge our network and to profit from the experiences and know-how of all Oracle users. We will for sure be looking forward to next year’s DOAG event.
