Mastering Oracle Trace Data

From The Twitter Machine today:

Which takes you here.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Millsap in person last year at OOW. Since then, I've seen him present at KScope and more recently at our local user group.

I can't tell you how much I haven't processed yet.

Anyway, he had mentioned to me that he was considering this one day Masterclass event, but hadn't figured out all the details. He has now.

So it looks like he only has an event set up for Dallas/Ft. Worth, I want him to come back and visit Florida. We're often left out of these types of events (everyone neglects America's...ok, I won't go there).

I have an obsession about proving things...I'm tired of getting beat down by people who say "prove it."

With that in mind, I'm starting a petition of sorts, to lure Mr. Millsap into coming back to Florida.

If you're interested, email me to let me know you're interested in having this event down here in Florida. If enough people are interested, I'll bug Mr. Millsap until he agrees to come back.

When Mr. Millsap was in town, after he presented, he was showing us some material from this class he was thinking about.

If you read Jake's musings over at the AppsLab, you'll know he (and Rich and Anthony) have gone to Google IO for the past 2 years. This year they came away with, among other things, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a Chromebook (which shipped very recently).

Mr. Millsap is doing something similar. Not only do you get to learn all about trace data, you get the tools to do so:

- Mastering Oracle Trace Data booklet, by Cary Millsap
- A limited license for MR Trace, the zero-click trace file collector for Oracle SQL Developer
- A limited license for MR Tools, the premiere software for trace file mining, management, and manipulation
- A Method R “I can help you trace it” T-shirt

So sign up for the DFW class, or let me know so we can bring Mr. Millsap back to Florida.
