Top 7 Reasons Why Oracle Conferences Rock!
Why take the time and make the effort to attend an Oracle database conference or Oracle user group meeting? We're all busy, so there had better be some super good reasons to make the effort! For me, the benefits definitely exceed the cost.
There are many different conferences to choose from. There are professional conferences, leadership conferences, scientific conferences and business focused conferences. So why an Oracle Database conference? What's the big deal?
This is difficult for me to explain, so I've summarized why I love Oracle conferences into a "Top 7" list.
Number 7. Get free stuff from vendors
Number 4. Learn, if you want toThere are always opportunities to learn at conferences. How many times have I heard someone say they were in a lame session. But when I ask if they read the abstract first, they say no. If you want to increase your chances of attending great sessions, read the abstract. Second, look for speakers you like. Third, sit next to the door just in case you need to make a quick exit! The worst you can do is look at the agenda and pick the sessions you want to attend. Do a little research and you'll be surprised how many good sessions there are.
Number 3. Be inspired!How many places can you go to receive inspiration? Not many, is my answer! Because I can chill for a bit at conferences, observe what's going on in our industry and interact with a wide variety of people associated with Oracle technology, I tend to leave with a fresher and more refined view... or better said, "A Wider View." That in itself is worth the cost of any conference.
Number 2. Network with vendors, speakers, colleagues
Number 1. Be with friends
