I am back from AIOUG meet “SANGAM 14 – Meeting of Minds” and it was a wonderful experience. Had really nice time meeting some old friends and making few new ones :). I think i should mention here, finally i met Amit Bansal , mind behind http://askdba.org/ . It was fun meeting him 🙂
It was 3 day conference with
1st day :- Optimizer Master Class by Tom Kyte. It was full day seminar. Learned some new optimizer features of 12c. We all were very thankful to Tom for being in India for the 3rd time to present in Sangam.
2nd day :- The day started with “What You Need To Know About Oracle Database In-Memory Option” by Maria Colgan. If i need to describe in a word i would say “Awesome!!!!” . I loved every minute of the presentation and was well presented and very informative. Rest of the day i moved from room to room, attending some good sessions on 12c and optimization.
3rd day: – I wasn’t much serious on the 3rd day 😀 . Mostly spent time meeting people around and discussing about oracle. What i loved on 3rd day was an hour session on “Time to Reinvent Yourself – Through Learning, Leading, and Failing” by Dr. Rajdeep Manwani. He shared his life experiences and some truth about human nature. It was amazing.
Overall it was nice to be part of Sangam 14 and learn some really new things mostly on 12c. Thanks to all the speakers and organizing committee for the efforts and valuable time they have put in.
