I’ve never been to KScope. Yes never.
I’ve always wanted to. Each year you hear of all of these stories about how much people really enjoy KScope and how much they learn.
So back in October I decided to submit 5 presentations to KScope. 4 of these presentations are solo presentations and 1 joint presentation.
This week I have received the happy news that 2 of my solo presentations have been accepted, plus my joint presentation with Kim Berg Hansen.
So at the end of June 2016 I will be making my way to Chicago for a week of Oracle geekie fun at KScope.
My presentations will be:
- Is Oracle SQL the best language for Statistic?
- Running R in your Oracle Database using Oracle R Enterprise
and my join presentations is called
Forecasting in Oracle using the Power of SQL (this will talk about ROracle, Forecasting in R, Using Oracle R Enterprise and SQL)
I was really hoping that one of my rejected presentations would have been accepted. I really enjoy this presentation and I get to share stories about some of my predictive analytics projects. Ah well, maybe in 2017.
The last time I was in Chicago was over 15 years ago when I sent 5 days in Cellular One (The brand was sold to Trilogy Partners by AT&T in 2008 shortly after AT&T had completed its acquisition of Dobson Communications). I was there to kick off a project to build them a data warehouse and to build their first customer churn predictive model. I stayed in a hotel across the road from their office which was famous because a certain person had stayed in it why one the run. Unfortunately I didn’t get time to visit downtown Chicago.
