The Linux Installfests are a great feature of OTN night at Open World and I thought it would be brilliant if we had something similar at the Conference. Fortunately Todd Trichler
thought the same and it's happening on the Friday of the conference (November 17th). Bring your laptop and get expert help to install Linux and Oracle. Or just turn up to acquire free Linux distro packs and Oracle software. Sue Harper will be giving a presentation about running SQL*Developer on Linux. Also Bryce from Linux engineering will be on hand to explain the details of the Linux kernel to anybody who wants to go deeper.
In short, something for everybody whether you're a Linux virgin or a battle-scarred veteran. The Install fest is free but you do need to book your attendance during registration. If you already have booked your place for the UKOUG 2006 and would like to add the Oracle on Linux Install-fest to your booking, call the registration office on 01252 77 14 93.
