Planning for Oaktable World 2015
Planning starts earlier and earlier each year. The first year 2012, I started up the conference two week before the event! Thanks to all the help from Oaktable members we pulled off an awesome conference. Wow.
Every year we try something something different.
The first year, 2012, was 2 days and in one small though awesome room called the community lounge. It’s round and 3 stories tall and when not being used for Oaktable World it often sports a field of 2 foot tall mushrooms with iPads embedded in their crowns.
The next year, 2013, we expand to two tracks over two days. It was tough to decided which track to attend because they were both great.
Thus in 2014 we went back to one room but got the biggest room at the venue and packed it for 2 days.
Now for 2015 we are looking into using the same room and extending the event to three days.
Another idea is to have a day of SQL tuning and relational foundations. The dream would be to have Dan Tow, Chris Date, Fabian Pascal, Jonathan Lewis, Carlos Sierra, Maria Colgan, and Karen Morton and etc talk about SQL and and relational foundations.
And of course still have all the great bits, bytes and process dump internals that Oaktable is famous for on other days along with insights on new technologies on the other two days.
Oaktable World couldn’t happen without the generous support of Oaktable members, Pythian, Delphix and Enkitec/Accenture.
