Hotsos Symposium 2011

Symposium 2010 Session with Cary Millsap

Join the world's top Oracle performance analysts at the ninth annual Hotsos Symposium, which is the conference dedicated to issues of Oracle system performance. The Symposium will be held March 6 — 10, 2011 at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, TX.

"The Symposium was awesome. I really mean that. I had a great time and the speakers were great. It is a real testament to your company how well this seminar proceeds. Everything from the selections of food for lunch and breakfast to the timely topics is very well thought out. There wasn't one lost moment.

Everyone who spoke was fascinating and obviously expert at what they were speaking on. I enjoyed Tom Kyte's keynote address as well as his follow-up session on the importance of Metadata. Richard Foote's information on indexes was particularly helpful to me. We tested out Kerry Osborne's scripts to control execution plans without changing code and it worked as advertised. Every speaker was very informative and I got a lot out of the seminar.

All in all - time well spent."

Why Is the Hotsos Symposium Different?

Hotsos Symposium is the best conference in the Americas devoted to Oracle system performance. The combination of topic focus, small audience size, and large speaker list make the Hotsos Symposium an unsurpassed networking opportunity.

Hotsos Symposium reaches for a new technical high with presentations focused on techniques, experimental results, and field-tested scripts that attendees can take home and apply to real-world tasks. The speakers routinely offer an excellent balance between database principles and problem-solving techniques. The speakers also show you how to determine the difference between reliable information and bad advice around Oracle performance optimization.
