Irish Oracle SIG

OUG Ireland Meet-up 20th October

Posted on Updated on

Come along to the first OUG Ireland meet-up on the 20th October, in Bank of Ireland, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, between 18:15 and 20:00.

Over the years the OUG Ireland SIG committee have organised one day SIG events once or twice a year. This is in addition to the annual OUG Ireland conference (typically held in March). Sometimes it has been a challenge to get people to attend, sometimes it has been a challenge to get enough speakers, sometimes it was a challenge to get a good venue, etc.

So we have decided to try something a little bit different. In keeping with the current trend of smaller scale events we have organised our first Meet-up. This will be a short 2 hour event to be held after work on the 20th October. So come along and joins us.

This is a free and open event. You do not need to be a member of the user group to come to this meet-up.

Here are the details:

Theme for Meet-up

Updates from Oracle Open World 2016

OUG Ireland 2015 : Call for Papers

Posted on

We finally have confirmed dates for the OUG Ireland Annual Conference. It will be on the 3rd & 4th March, 2016.

In 2016 we are expanding the conference and marking it a 2 day conference. Over the past few years some of the feedback from delegates has been, can we have more sessions and add a second day. So we have listened and will now have a 2 day conference on 3rd & 4th March, 2016.

We also have a new venue too. The 2016 conference will be held in the Gresham Hotel, on O’Connell Street in central Dublin. It is so close to lots of the tourist attractions, lots of hotels and lots of entertainment.

The call for papers is now open and we are looking for presentations for the typical Business Analytics/Big Data, Hardcore DBA, Development, Cloud and Applications.

Do you have a story to share? Have you discovered something recently? Have you used a new product? Is there anything about some part of an Oracle Product you would like to share?

If so then click on the image below to go to the Submissions Website and get submitting. Closing date for submissions is 9am on 4th January.

Hopefully I’ll see you in Dublin in March.

The OUG Ireland conference will be on Thursday 19th March. Yes it is only a one day conference 😦 but we will be 5 or 6 or more streams. So there will be something for everyone and plenty of choice.

On Friday 20th March we will have Maria Colgan, formally the Optimizer Lady and now the In-Memory Queen (or something like that), giving a full day workshop on the In-Database option and the Optimizer. She will also be about for the main conference on the 19th, so you can expect a presentation or two from her on the Thursday.

Agenda selection day is the 8th January, 2015. So hopefully you will be getting the acceptance emails soon after that or during week of 12th January.

There is a committee of about 10 people who are involved in selecting presentations and setting the agenda. If it was up to me then I would accept everything/everyone. So if your presentation is not accepted this time, please don’t blame me 🙂 I said YES to your presentation, I really, really did. I fought so hard to have your presentation included. If your presentation is not accepted then the blame is down to the other committee members 🙂

The conference will be held in Croke Park, and is a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the Airport.
