Paul attended Under the Radar

This reminded me that there are a handful of conferences in the next few months that the ‘Lab will be attending. Let us know if you’ll be there, and we can talk shop over coffee or lunch or whatever.

Collaborate 08: April 13-17, 2008
I blogged about Collaborate 08 a few weeks ago, and since then several other Oracle bloggers have posted their sessions and recommended sessions, including:

I have been collecting these posts into a group on Oracle Mix, where Jim Marion aptly pointed out that PeopleSoft also has several Web 2.0 related sessions planned.

What: 40020: PeopleTools Advanced Tips and Techniques
Where: Room 501
When:  Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 0945-1045
Who: Jim Marion

What: 31920: PeopleSoft Portal: How to Enable Web 2.0 and AJAX
Where: Room 504
When: Thursday, April 17, 2008 at 0830-0930
Who: IntraSee

What: 40000: Extend PeopleSoft Applications Using Fusion Development Tools
Where: Room 502

What: 40030: PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal Roadmap
Where: Room 503

In case you missed it last time, Paul’s session information is:

What: Oracle & Web 2.0
Where: Room 102
When: Monday, April 14, 2008 at 0915-1015

Paul and I will only be in Denver a couple days, but I plan to spend most of my time chatting with people, e.g. continuing my discussion with Ameed Taylor about Google and the enterprise, and scouting out New Web stuff, like the OUAG social network that Eddie outed last week.

Web 2.0 Expo: April 22-25
The whole ‘Lab will be in attendance at this quintessential New Web conference. For the first time, Oracle is a platinum sponser and will have a large booth with several demo pods and an unconference area. We haven’t yet decided if we’ll have an AppsLab pod within the Oracle booth, but we’ll definitely be hanging around the conference, and someone will definitely be showing Oracle Mix in the Oracle booth.

I’ll most likely be using Twitter to tweet my whereabouts and conference thoughts, so that will be a good way to track me, if you’re interested. I’ll post more details in the coming weeks. Carl from the APEX will be there, as will Justin I’m sure. Anyone else? Sound off in comments.

Others
I’m planning on being at WebVisions in Portland, May 22-23, and Rich will be coming to Portland for RailsConf in late May as well. For those who don’t know, the Rose City has a very vibrant tech scene, especially around Rails and web development.

If you’re wondering what conferences we’ll be attending, we use the “appslab” group on Upcoming to track interesting conferences and events all over world. If we’re attending, you’ll see us listed in the roster of people attending. The group is public, so feel free to join and add events to the group. We have an Events widget below the fold here that shows the next nine or so events on the group calendar.

Do you have suggestions for events the ‘Lab should attend? Do you want to meet up with us at one of the events we’re attending? Other thoughts on conferences? Go nuts in comments.

    Yes, will be there (booth staff actually!). Not only will there be a mini-unconf at the Oracle booth, but we will also be providing wired internet connections for bloggers (good luck hopping on wifi there).

    @Justin: What is this “wired internet connections” you mention? Sounds like a unicorn, since everyone knows the Interwebs is wireless.

    Actually, a great idea considering the wi-fi black hole that is Moscone.

    I’ll definitely be looking for you at Collaborate. Unfortunately, I’ll be (co-)presenting (with Matt Topper) during Paul’s session, so won’t be able to attend that one. I’ll be tweeting, so I imagine we’ll find one another and feed some more homeless people or some such Good Thing.
