… at MOS… uh… in light of the Flashing incident with the other MOS, maybe it is better to stick with the abbreviation MOTS – the Michigan OakTable Symposium.
For the first time ever, the OakTable Network is organizing a two day training event on the Thursday and Friday (September 16th and 17th, 2010) just before Oracle OpenWorld, in Ann Arbor, Michigan (not far from the University of Michigan). The details are still being finalized, so for right now here are the basics:
- Seating will be limited to a maximum of 300 people.
- OakTable Network members from around the world will attend and provide the training sessions.
- Sessions will be provided that will appeal to DBAs and developers.
- MOTS is not intended as a money making event. As such, the cost for attending the event has been set as low as possible to essentially “break-even”.
Probable Speakers Include (subject to change):
- Jonathan Lewis
- Cary Millsap
- Christian Antognini
- Riyaj Shamsudeen
- Randolf Geist
- Dan Fink
- Robyn Sands
- Doug Burns
- Andy Zitelli
- Mogens Nørgaard
Early registration at a rate of $450 per person will end April 30, 2010. Registration between May 1 and July 31 is $600 per person, and increases to $750 per person after July 31. These prices do not include room hotel costs (roughly $100 per night), but will include a high quality buffet lunch.
More details will follow later.
February 5 Update:
I heard that a couple of more people will likely be added to the list of presenters, and it looks like I might have the opportunity to present with Randolf. Biographies for the presenters will hopefully be available within a couple of weeks, along with the site for registration.
