KScope12 session highlight No. 4

Back to the beginning

Ah, the start of a romance, when you and your paramour are eagerly discovering each other.  Anything and everything seems possible.  You feel as if you are on cloud nine and the world is your oyster.  Of course you felt this way about Essbase, right?  I know I did, although I can be somewhat…odd in my enthusiasms.

One of the benefits (?) about aging (other than the alternative, which is being dead) is that you can watch others go through the same experiences as you.  (Sorry, I have to insert this if you clicked on the previous link.  One day I will have to write a blog about Canadian humor, alas not today.)

Silliness aside, not everyone knows Essbase.  In fact, there are (thankfully) new customers of what is surely the most awesome analytical tool there ever has been all the time.

And to reach those Essbase newbies, Kscope12 has a track exclusively dedicated to the basics of Essbase.  It’s the brainchild of MMIC, and is a pretty interesting group of sessions.  Remember, if you are an advanced Essbase developer, these sessions are probably not for you, although I am sure there is interesting and unique content.

And so to conclude

Kscope12 is not just for ultra geeks and Oracle ACE Directors, but we mere mortals as well.  I’m happy that ODTUG has recognized that some of the advanced content might be leaving new developers by the wayside and has provided sessions that brings everyone under the conference tent.

Less than a month away…so awesome/so scary.
