OOW2K7 Scheduler Builder open

Those of us fortunate enough to be going to Open World this year can now start planning our days with the conference Schedule Builder. I've begun the process but be warned: it requires a lot of time and mental stamina. In a world which has gone Web2.0 mad, the Open World Schedule Builder is proudly, defiantly Web1.0.

Yes, it's the user-unfriendly single long HTML table which makes it impossible to see which sessions you've booked and which sessions clash. It's the agonising network round trip every time you book a session. And it's the long scroll back from the top of the page after every booking. Oh, and Firefox users will need to use the IE Tab add-on to see the popup boxes but you probably guessed that already. In short, a trying experience, and one which shows the UKOUG agenda builder in a very good light (to be fair the UKOUG sites require the IE Tab too).

Whilst choosing sessions I noticed that just about all the developer sessions are in the Oracle Develop stream. At first I thought this was just Oracle's policy of making all the best stuff a chargeable extra. But it's actually more complicated than that. Looking at the web site it seems that Oracle Develop is not a licenceable pack. Rather it's an semi-autonomous event running alongside Open World, with some overlap (access to the OTN social events, the exhibition hall and the keynotes). So I guess Oracle have decided that not only is there a difference between developers and DBAs, the difference is so vast the two groups require separate conferences.

I also noticed that a lot of interesting sessions are only available when registering for the Oracle Develop stream. Looks like that I have to change my registration.

BTW, I haven't noticed the problems with the Schedule Builder and FF. Works fine here.
