May 22, 2013: Full day of Oracle hands on labs, free! (bay area)

MH900400379Oracle OTN is hosting a full day of  free*  hands on Oracle labs on May 22, 2013 in Pleasanton, Ca

Learn rapid application development (RAD) with Oracle tools. Veteran OTN instructor David Peake will lead an end-to-end, soup-to-nuts session on using Data Modeler to design a database, SQL Developer to build tables, and Application Express to build a web-based application. Attendees must bring their own laptop containing the Developer Day virtual machine from AEach session in this track builds upon the previous session so please plan on attending all four sessions in this track.

To participate in the labs you have to be a member of NoCOUG but for a limited time  we are offering a limited number of free one day passes to this special OTN event. Please contact me at if you are not a member of NoCOUG but would like to attend the OTN labs. If you are already a member of  NoCOUG and would like to attend the lab sessions, register here.


Not only will there be a full day of OTN labs but there will be awesome talks by renown Oracle speakers.

If you are a DBA type you may be thinking “why should I attend the OTN labs?” My response would be: Why broaden your horizons? Why get out of your comfort zone? Why learn new skills? Why bother taking advantage of the magnificent educational smorgasbord that we call NoCOUG? When ever I have the chance I try and learn new skills. One never knows what tomorrow will bring and having a wide array of skills will allow me to grow into new areas that prove in more demand or more interesting.
