The Unconference at OpenWorld continues to fill up; Tuesdays advance slot are all full, and Wednesday is quickly filling up too.
I noticed Raimonds added a session last week called “Using Ruby on Rails with legacy Oracle databases” on Thursday at 10 AM. If you’re still at the conference on Thursday, I highly recommend checking out his session.
Assuming the content is similar to what he showed Rich and me at RailsConf back in May, you’re going to want to see it. He’s got some great examples of Rails web apps running on Oracle apps. Very cool stuff.
Dan teased another possible unconference session via Twitter on how to give good presentations. I’d attend that; the guy’s all over OpenWorld this year so his game better be polished. I don’t see an advanced signup, so maybe it’ll be a day of thing.
So, I’ve decided to jump into the unconference mix. Hey, all the cool kids are doing it. I thought about rebroadcasting my content from our session on Monday, Norris-style, but as I mentioned before, I want to bring some humor to the party.
I’m not fully settled on a topic or a title, but for now, I’m going with “Are you insulting me? Essential geek-speak, FTW!”. I’m hoping Matt will copresent. Anyone else want to get a piece of this action?
My slot is Wednesday, 4 PM in Overlook II. Not that there are lots of choices, but I like the late afternoon slot because it should transition nicely into any evening activities. Plus, after a day of serious learning and information gathering, everyone should be ready for a dose of humor.
Once I get some slides ready, I’ll be blogging those to get thoughts and feedback in advance. Crowdsourcing, FTW!
