OOW13 Planning Begins

Hard to believe that Oracle Open World 2013 is just a month away. Harder to believe the obvious implication of that fact -- that summer has once again slipped away into history. (Sigh.)

Planner that I am, it has been absolutely killing me that the agenda builder has not been available so I could put together my itinerary. In the last two years, I represented a broad portfolio of Applications and dabbled here and there and everywhere. In my new capacity, several applications -- while still of great intellectual interest -- are no longer my responsibility. It feels strange to skip over E-Business Suite and Hyperion EPM sessions in favor of PeopleTools. While it won't be surprising to friends of the blog that I'll be hitting as many OBIEE and Exalytics sessions as I can, with our big push on mobility and user experience, I will be flipping the techie switch in my brain and trying to understand a host of sessions on ADF, SOA, and UX. The resurgence of APEX is also of great interest, so I will need to carve out a few hours for that. All in all, I expect another exhausting and brain-fatiguing week! Now back to that agenda builder (finally launched yesterday) to see what fits.
