OCM 11g

After all, I learned one new thing I did not expect to find out at OOW: at the OCP Lounge (where, contrary to promises, no networking took place), I was told new info regarding the 11g OCM exam.
While from supposedly trustworthy source, don't take the following as 100%-sure; still, it's worth to know, that:
- the 11g OCM Upgrade exam is scheduled to start late November this year, and will be delivered on 11gR1.
- the full 2-day 11g OCM has no schedule yet, and will be delivered on 11gR2 from it's start.

The only trouble I see is the attendance - with 10g OCM, every local Oracle was cancelling it if only one person signed for it - two persons was minimum. With the upgrade, how many people will sign up?

OOW 2009 experience

As I was at the Open World last week, you would expect me to post a bunch of blog entries, right? Well, no... first of all, it was already covered by many others, closer to the real time of the events. You can read about the perhaps most interesting event I attended at Pythian OOW09 Diaries.

Still, let me empahsize one thing - as a first-timer to OOW I realized, that after all, the sessions held there are not so important, after all. Ok, select some of them, but reserve enought time for the Unconference, for the OTN Lounge, and to meet other fellows. You will catch up with the sessions using OOW On-demand (and as I remember, the PDFs are published later for general public) later - you will have to do it anyway, you can't attend everything you would like.
