With one talk each on MySQL and PostgreSQL, it was a good day for database enthusiasts. Maybe that's why I saw quite a few Oracle users there.
The organizers also invited attendees to put together impromptu Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions. I was tempted to throw together one for Oracle, but I felt like my impromptu idea needed more preparation... I wanted to have a list of topics to seed discussion if it drags.
So, what kind of topics would you suggest for an Oracle-Linux BoF? Here are some that occurred to me.
- Experiences with Oracle on various Linux distributions
- Oracle's ancient Apache 1.3 HTTPServer; is it ever going to get to 2.0? Can you get mod_plsql working on Apache 2.0?
- Open-source SQL*Plus alternatives (actually, someday I hope to talk at OOUG on this)
- Experiences with RAC on Linux, Oracle Cluster File System, etc.?
