I just registered to Oracle OpenWorld in October in San Francisco… Well, I know it is a long long long way to the west, but I will survive again, but this time I will avoid Delta Airlines, they refused to serve me a glass of wine last year in the plane! I am going to take maybe Lufthansa.
As an ACE, I got the Oracle Develop for free this year too. I also took the gold pass, well, waiting hours for keynotes is just too much boring. Since it is the only thing I pay myself (ok wine in the plane too), I guess this 150$ investment is ok.
If available, I will try the Oracle Application Server OCP Beta exam 1Z1-312 in SF. Also, I will ask them why this OCM 10g upgrade is still not available.
