OOW2K6: The presentations we can't see

As several other bloggers have noted the Open World presentations are now online. The "attendees only" password is widely circulated. It also is derivable from the passwords for previous years: no doubt what the experts call security through over-familiarity. My slides and supporting collateral are there, although it looks like you will have to use your skill and judgement to figure out which paperclip is the Powerpoint and which is a SQL script.

One category of presentations which is not available are any Oracle presentations alluding to features which may or may not be in the next release of Oracle. It would seem the legalistic get-out at the start of each presentation covers the session itself but not subsequent publication of the slides anywhere else. So if like me you missed a presentation or just didn't take adequate notes, well, you'll know better next time.


Since posting this I have tried to download some other presentations. For some reason PowerPoint will not open Oracle-sourced presentations. I don't think it is due to corruption in the content management system as I could open a non-Oracle PPT file. It may be a trojan macro embedded in the template by Oracle's legal department ;) Anyway, this is another good reason to convert presentations to PDF. I've been using Primo PDF, as recently recommended by Tom Kyte, and it really does the business.

while the presentations are online, I have been listening to the podcasts on my way into work(I have a long commute to work - so at times I turn to the podcasts to make my drive interesting). I must say I am disappointed, probably I was expecting a lot more from the podcast sessions but they were really a very high level overview
