OpenWorld on your iPad and iPhone - Now Fully Operational!

In one of my recent blog post I provided links to our OpenWorld data warehouse web app for smartphones and tablets. Now that the OOW team has released the hands-on lab schedule (it is now live on the OpenWorld site) I have updated my smartphone and tablet apps to include the list of hands-on labs on a day-by-day basis (Monday Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). The list of hands-on labs can still be viewed in subject area order (data warehousing and big data) within the app via the “Switch to subject view” link in the top left part of the screen.

I have also added a location map which can be viewed by clicking on the linked-text, “View location map", which is in the top right part of the screen on each application. The location map that is available within both the tablet and smartphone apps is shown below:

Oow locations

If you want to run these updated web apps on your smartphone and/or tablet then you can reuse the existing links that I published on my last blog post. If you missed that post then  follow these links:

Android users: I have tested the app on Android and there appears to be a bug in the way the Chrome browser displays frames since scrolling within frames does not work . The app does work correctly if you use either the Android version of the Opera browser or the standard Samsung browser on Samsung devices. 

Please note that I have also published online calendars (via my Google account) which can viewed via the following blog posts:


If you have any comments about the app (content you would like to see) then please let me know. Enjoy OpenWorld and, if you have time, it would be great to see you if you want to stop by at the Parallel Execution and Analytical SQL demo booth.

My Data Warehousing and Big Data Must-See Guide for OpenWorld

Data Warehousing Must-See Session Guide for Open World 2014
IBook2014

There’s so much to learn at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld - it provides more educational and networking opportunities than any other conference dedicated to Oracle business and technology users. To get the most from this year’s event I have prepared an initial guide which lists all the must important data warehousing and big data sessions. The first part of the guide provides links to videos and content from last year’s event so you can either re-live the highlights from last year or see what you missed by not being there! If you have an iPad or use OSX 10.9 then you will want to download the iBook version because this contains video highlights from last year’s database keynote session.

The session guide is divided into the following chapters:

  • Data Warehousing
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Database Analytics
  • Industry Data Models and Data Integration
  • Unstructured Data
  • Big Data

The last part of the booklet lists all the key data warehouse and big data product managers who will be presenting at this year’s conference. Included alongside each speaker’s biography are links to their social media sites and blogs.

Please note that, as usual, there will be hands-on labs at this year’s OpenWorld but these have not been included at in the session catalog. I am expecting them to be added shortly. Details of all our labs will appear in the more detailed guide that I will publish before the conference begins.

The Must-See guide is available in two formats: 

For iPad and OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) users please download the iBook, which is available here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/69436560/OOW/Must-See%20OpenWorld%202014_Sessions.ibooks

For all other platforms please download the PDF, which is available here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/69436560/OOW/Must-See%20OpenWorld%202014_Sessions.pdf

 

 Hope to see you in September at OpenWorld.
