Since I caught the ‘presenting bug’ after presenting at Collaborate 07 and I could not attend the ODTUG Kaleidoscope event which kicks off in the next few days, my thoughts turned to OOW 2007 (I’ve already submitted an extra to the UKOUG event in December 2007).
I was a bit surprised to find that there didn’t appear to be a ‘Call For Papers’ for OOW, even though the OOW Event is before the UKOUG event (which has already closed the CFP). Unless I’m mistaken, it looks like OOW stopped doing a ‘public CFP’ a few years ago and now you need to be invited to submit a paper (a previous presenter, Oracle Partner etc).
It’s a bit of a shame as I would have loved to present something about Application Express at OOW, since it’s the biggest event of it’s kind and I really enjoyed being at OOW last year (it seems so long ago now!). The interest in Application Express at OOW 2006 was great, there were some really enthusiastic people and we had a great time with the APEX SIG meetings, there were also some great APEX presentations.
So, unless someone knows differently, it doesn’t like I’m going to be able to submit something for OOW, so I hope my UKOUG submission is accepted!
