It has become almost a tradition for me to write an annual review of my conferences and presentations. The good news: In 2022, most of the conferences were on-site again. Additionally, there was another important event for me in 2022: I changed my job and work now for Callista.
I never wrote so few blog posts like in 2021. There are several reasons for this. But there are also good news: I was able to attend at least a few conferences this year.
I just presented my last session this year on Trivadis DevDays 2020. Like most conferences in 2020, it was a virtual event. 13 of 16 conference sessions in the last twelve months I was presenting from home. Time to look back to this very special year.
In the last four weeks, I had the chance to speak at three different conferences. This was the finish of an intensive conference year for me with many impressions, learning, knowledge sharing, new and old contacts and of course a lot of fun.
September was my second round of conferences this year. A presented my session “Avoid Horror Queries: Keep Your SQL Simple and Fast” on three different conferences, two of them organized by Trivadis.
In the last two months, I had the pleasure to speak at four different conferences. Each of them was unique in its own way, and all of them were definitely worth to attend. Of course, it is not possible to write down all impressions in one blog post, but at least I try to write a short personal review of these four events.
Since Oracle 12c, the query optimizer is able to change execution plans at runtime. This feature is called “Adaptive Plans”. Something similar happened on the ODTUG Community Service Day at the Kscope conference in Orlando.
For the first time, I had the chance to attend and speak at the UKOUG Technology Conference. In these three days at UKOUG Tech17 in Birmingham, I attended some very good sessions, had many interesting discussions about Oracle databases, data warehousing and performance tuning, met nice people and tasted a lot of chocolate.
This year, I had the opportunity to present three sessions at the DOAG conference in Nuremberg – one on each conference day. Here a short summary of the sessions and links to the downloads.
In the last couple of days, I joined several interesting events in Colorado. First, I was able to take part of the “Advanced Data Vault & Ensemble Modeling Summit” at Genesee Academy. After that, I attended the first “Global Data Summit” conference in Golden, Colorado. And finally, I was invited to a very special dinner of the “Boulder Business Intelligence Brain Trust”.
