Moscow Develop Event

After several days of visa processing, I'm clear to go to Moscow. Spasiba Mockba!
I'm speaking on Wednesday 4th on our new data modeling tools.  I'm hoping to go through a presentation of the features by demo on the fourth starting with a reverse engineering of a couple of schema to a relational model and abstracting that into a logical model.  I want to show several views and slices of the model.
I also want to show a load of the property management capabilities such as naming conventions to constrain object names.
From there, we can push down and create a physical model, containing the attributes of that model, such as tablespaces, indices and multi dimensional objects.
Lastly, We'll complete the circle and do some DDL Generation.
On Thursday, I have set up two hands-on labs to allow attendees to work through a prescribed text showing much of the same features I'll discuss in the talk.

Back on the Chain Gang

After a great holiday season, its time to get back to the grindstone. We released SQL Developer 1.5.3 before Christmas which is our first translated release. Its just japanese right now and we'll be extending that to nine languages in 1.5.4.
The other major part of 1.5.4 I want to sweep up are as many issues as possible from our customers on the forums. Over the next few weeks, we'll be focusing on locking down as many of these as possible.
In terms of conferences, I'm off to Moscow in February as part of the series of Oracle Develop conferences. I'll be doing a couple of sessions on SQL Developer and hope to get under the covers to show exactly how you can build your own additions to it. I was watching Sue present at UKOUG and it was the one thing that struck me that people were looking for as heads were bobbing around the room.
