Just putting up a reminder about the Oracle Users meetup event on this Thursday, should be a great occasion to learn, network and share information with other Oracle users in Ireland. It’s organised through the site meetup.com, I would recommend joining the Oracle User Group as this will keep you updated on their happenings.
I went to the last meetup before Christmas and it was quite enjoyable in learning about new technologies and networking with Oracle professionals.
The next meetup is on DevOps and how to migrate to the Cloud, the full agenda is:
The agenda for the meet-up is:
18:00-18:20 Sign-in, meet and greet, network, grab some refreshments, etc
18:20-18:30 : Introductions & Welcome, Agenda, what is OUG Ireland, etc.
18:30-19:00 : Dev Ops and Oracle PL/SQL development – Alan McClean
In recent years the need to deliver changes to production as soon as possible has led to the rise of continuous delivery; continuous integration and continuous deployment. These issues have become standards in the application development, particularly for code developed in languages such as Java. However, database development has lagged behind in supporting this paradigm. There are a number of steps that can be taken to address this. This presentation examines how database changes can be delivered in a similar manner to other languages. The presentation will look at unit testing frameworks, code reviews and code quality as well as tools for managing database deployment.
19:00-1930 : Simplifying the journey to Oracle Cloud : Decision makers across Managers, DBA’s and Cloud Architects who need to progress an Oracle Cloud Engagement in the organization – Ken MacMahon, Head of Oracle Cloud Services at Version 1
The presentation will cover the 5 steps that Version 1 use to try and help customers with Oracle Cloud adoption in the organisation. By attending you will hear, how to deal with cloud adoption concerns, choose candidates for cloud migration, how to design the cloud architecture, how to use automation and agility in your Cloud adoption plans, and finally how to manage your Cloud environment.
After the session attendees should;
Have a broad understanding of how Oracle Cloud, in particular IaaS/PaaS, could be used within their organisation.
