Collaborate 2010 Conference – Las Vegas: Day 1

The conference started with a number of deep dives. I was involved with the “Virtualization for Oracle Professionals”. Lots of great quotes and best practices for implementing virtualization for Oracle. Steve Lemme, Sam Brunacini, Bob Netherton and Brian Leonard and George Trujillo combined to present on virtualization basics, directions, strategies and best practices.

Discussions with a few attendees has already paid for the conference.  Networking, insights and experiences of other attendees is invaluable.  Attendees will be making  thousands to millions of dollar decisions that will have tremendous impacts on their customers and companies.

Looks like the Fusion presentations went really well, I heard a lot of great comments.

I asked a number of people last night and today what was the main reason they were at conference. Answers included:
- “To understand trends and directions”
- “Enterprise best practices”
- “To hear what the experts say, I can read a book or the documentation. It’s the gotchas, lessons learned that matter to me.”
- “Virtualization”
- “Everything”

Really looking forward to ACE dinner and networking this evening.
