I've just received Oracle Partner Network newsletter with invitation to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Roadshow. On this Roadshow Oracle is also going to find partners for beta testing. My guess: This year Oracle 11g R2 will be the main topic on Oracle Open World.
Schedule of Roadshow in Europe:
- May 12, 2008: UK, Reading
- May 13, 2008: Benelux, De Meern
- May 14, 2008: Germany, Muenchen
- May 15, 2008: Italy, Milan
- May 16, 2008: Turkey, Istanbul
- May 19, 2008: Czech Republic, Prague
- May 20, 2008: Poland, Kraków
- May 21, 2008: Sweden, Stockholm
- May 22, 2008: Spain, Madrid
I've registered. I hope to get confirmation soon. I do not expect many technical details. I rather expect marketing speech. For me most important would be to meet people that work on new DB version, and become beta tester for 11gR2.
