Actually, the one on one consultations were something I helped introduce last 
year, so this is the second time they've done them.  I'm not coordinating it 
this time round because I moved to RAC Development since last year, but if it's 
the same as last year here are a couple of comments:

1.  The people you'll be talking with are almost all top level consultants.  
The quality of the people we had last year was outstanding.

2.  If you're interested in doing this, I'd suggest you pre-book.  Last year 
IIRC we had something like 75% of the free consultations booked before OOW 
opened.  This year it may even be worse.  :)  Pre-booking also allows us to 
contact you beforehand to get specific details of your issues so the actual 
talks are more focused.

3.  Given this year we have Oracle + PeopleSoft (+ maybe even Siebel?), it's 
gonna be an incredibly full floor, so allow more time for getting round to talk 
to people on the exhibition floor.

Unfortunately I won't be there at all this year because of my recent back 
surgery.  But Chevy's is always good fun for the oracle-l dinner.  :)

This is my first time at OOW.  I am taking the Xtreme
class on Rac during the weekend.  The 1 hours sessions
look awesome as do the mini demos, etc.
I will report back afterwards ... If the one hour
session are good, I plan on buying the $75.00 dvd
package which has all the presentation on them.

The keynote presentations don't interest me at all.  I
am trying to schedule thing during that time which I
am finding hard to do.  There are also alot of side
things to do.. There is a vendor presentation on
Monday night and there is an Apps meeting Monday

To get the most of it... I am trying to schedule
everything.  I wish the scheduler would let you select
alternate sessions.

I would like to be able to have handy alternates if
1)  my gets cancelled or
2)  It isn't good

so I can slip into another session that might be more
focused at my companies needs.

Otherwise this year looks awesome to me.  They even
have were you can schedule a one on one consult with
oracle.  This is normally a $500/hour!

There are also hands on labs...

So I can't see how this isn't worth it... Unless you
just go there to party and pick up freebies... Which I
can see happening with alot of people.

Just my 2.5 cents worth


BTW.... has any settle if any of us are getting
together or not?  Sunday works for me.
