Well, it is sort of like the end of a love affair. I suppose loving a conference is a Strange Love indeed but there it is. (Yes, sometimes the song references are a bit of a stretch, but think of it as my attempt to broaden your musical horizons.) And sadly Thursday (yeah, yeah, I’m late) was the last day.
Pressman, ASO wizard extraordinaire, gave his chapter presentation from
the book. Although I love each and every chapter in Developing Essbase Applications,
his is the one that excites me the most. I always want to know how
things work and “How ASO Works and How to Design for Performance” is our
best hope of understanding how ASO Essbase works under the covers short
of working for Oracle Development.
a last panel for me – Planning All Stars (so how did I get included?) –
this time as moderator with John Booth, Tony Depew, and Jake Turrell as
the panelists. It was a pretty freewheeling (any time panelists start
insulting each other it’s at least entertaining
but it was all in good fun) discussion with really good audience
participation. I do enjoy these and have found that the sheer terror of
moderating diminishes with time. Or I was so tired I didn’t care. I
vote for the latter.
then it was time to wrap up what has been a great conference. If you
were there, you know what I mean. If you weren’t, what are you
thinking? Get thee hence to KScope13.
Did you know you can register now for Kscope13? If you missed Kscope12, you missed the chance of not abasing yourself in a mad scramble for a free ticket (I believe brass knuckles came out as did maces, broadswords, Krav Maga, and possibly a Trident submarine). Yes, free is good and you missed it. However, did you know that you can submit your abstract now?
If your abstract is accepted, your conference fee is waived. ODTUG is
always looking for good, innovative, interesting, and informative
sessions. Submit one now – who knows what will happen?
Do I ever stop asking leading questions? Yup, right now. This is the end of my day-by-day Kscope12 coverage.
See you in New Orleans!
