COLLABORATE 09: Other Stuff

I woke up late today so I missed the Charles Phillips keynote. I'm hoping to catch it online somewhere.

I've been to 3 sessions today.
Anatomy of a Database Attack by Josh Shaul
Data Security Challenge by Paul Needham and Tammy Bednar
Converting Oracle Forms to ApEx by David Peake

Not a bad day.

At lunch I saw Tom Kyte sitting by himself at a table in front of one of the giant OCCC halls. I did not bother him though some suggested I do so. That's why I am here right? To network and meet people? One person even suggested giving him an ORACLENERD T-Shirt (yes, I have a few).

Now I'm waiting to "network" with Dan Norris, Jeremy Schneider, John Scott, Dimitri Gielis and maybe Billy Cripe.

I met John and Dimitri outside the OCCC yesterday as I waited for my ride. I was one of John's first customers at way back in 2005. I took my 75 page J2EE app and ported it to ApEx in about 2 weeks. It took 6 months to write the J2EE application.
