IOUG Day 3

Filed under: Infrastructure,Oracle,Performance — Jonathan Lewis @ 7:30 pm BST May 7,2009

Today was the day of my presentation – which took out two sessions while I was talking, plus the one before so I didn’t have to run to my room.

I think it went well, they laughed in all the right places and several people have come up to me since to say nice things and have a chat.

Today’s gem was Cary Millsap’s presentation. I don’t think he said anything I didn’t know – but he says it so well it’s worth hearing again, and always makes me review how I present things.

I particularly liked his image of “fast” meaning two things: “fast now fast later” – where “fast later” then translates into “scalable”.

The phrase makes it so easy to remember to ask yourself the question: “will it still be fast when XXX has changed ?”.
