OOW Oracle Mix 2011–End Result

Posted on

After 3 weeks the voting on Oracle Mix has come to an end.  There was a record number of submissions and voting this year on Oracle Mix.

Based on the results from previous years anyone with a vote count over 30 seemed to have gotten they presentation accepted for Oracle Open World.

With this years increase interest, number of presentations and the total number of votes cast it looks like the you will need at least 87 votes to get into the top 20.

The organisers say that the winners are select based on the total number of votes case, but they can adjust things as this see fit – whatever that means.

I had submitted 3 presentations – it was my first attempt at submitting to Oracle Open World. 

My best place (or most popular) presentation was ‘Using Oracle Data Miner 11gR2 & SQL Dev. for Data Mining’. For this presentation I received 56 votes, which puts me in 52nd place. 

So it looks like I’m way outside making to short list for OOW11.  Maybe next year.

I’ve also submitted 2 of my presentations to the annual UKOUK conference in December. The closing date was the 5th June and the results should be out in August.

Fingers crossed.

    Update on Oracle Mix Result.
    There was 29 submission that were accepted through the voting on Oracle Mix. Although the criteria that is set out on Oracle Mix seems very clear, there is still some “big brother” type judgement on what presentations were accepted.

    For example one of the presentations that was accepted was in the same category as my presentations and got a lower number of votes than one of my presentations. It got accepted for OOW but my presentation wasn't.

    Ah well, next year maybe.
