RMOUG Training Days Conference - Day 1

The Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group (RMOUG) Training Days Conference launched this week. It is a three day conference hosted at the Denver Convention center, focused on Oracle products and technologies. There are four different tracks this year covering: Database Development, Java, .NET and Oracle Application Express.

Traveling & Buffeting

RMOUG Keynote Overview
The morning began with a two hour keynote presentation, that was fairly well orchestrated. Highlights included new Oracle 11g features, Java interoperability, Oracle Enterprise Manager and open source language compatibility. During the presentation I drew this MindMap, which helped keep me engaged:

Hands-On Labs
The first day of the training days focuses on hands-on labs. I chose to participate in the Java track. You can work through the Java lab exercises using a virtual machine (VM), which has the labs and software ready to go. You'll need to create a free Oracle account and then download Oracle VirtualBox and the pre-configured Oracle Linux VM.

Oracle on the Brain
The VM includes the following software:
  • Oracle Linux 5
  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition
  • Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Cache
  • Oracle XML DB
  • Oracle SQL Developer
  • Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
  • Oracle Application Express
  • Oracle JDeveloper
  • Hands-On-Labs (accessed via the Toolbar Menu in Firefox)

The following user/passwords are used in the VM environment:
  • Database: sys/oracle, system/oracle
  • OS: oracle/oracle, root/oracle
  • APEX: workspace: obe, username: obe, password: obe

After a full day of hands-on labs you too can have Oracle on your brain! (Bag not included.)
