So this was my 3rd Oracle Open World, and not much has changed in terms of my experience as a ‘booth boy’ in the Vendor Exhibition Hall. However a few things definitely got my attention. I will need to re-evaluate how I treat the opportunity to attend this conference going forward.
My biggest ‘miss’ was not attending the blogger meet-up, despite getting at least 3 personal invites. The opportunity to hang out with some Quest colleagues that I only see once or twice a year was just too much for me to pass up, but I am filled with some regret.
My Two Foot-in-Mouth Moments
Considering that I was talking non-stop for the better part of 24 hours over 3 days, I think I could have done worse. Although our VP got quite a laugh out of the Terradata ‘story.’ If their stock price shoots up, then you can thank me.
