Kscope 2022 – Presenting Again!

Next month I’ll be attending my first in person conferences since 2019. The Kscope 22 conference will be in Grapevine Texas, June 19th – 23rd. My last last conference also happened to be Kscope (2019).

ODTUG Kscope Conference

Kscope 2019 was my first Kscope conference I had ever attended. I found the event different than other Oracle conferences I’ve attended. The content is top notch as are the speakers. They attract the most amazing speakers from around the globe. Many are in the Oracle ACE program, authors, experts, etc. The event is very inclusive for all involved, from attendees to speakers to vendors. They have an awesome track break down that includes:

  • Analytics
  • Oracle APEX
  • Core & Database
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Enterprise Planning
  • EPM Foundations & Reporting
  • Essbase
  • Financial Close
  • Modern App Development (PaaS)
  • Profitability
  • Strategic EPM


I’ve been fortunate to have been selected for two presentations. One in the database track and another in the emerging technologies track. Both presentations will be Oracle Cloud related. The Machine Learning one is a completely new subject for me. I’ve been really enjoying learning about and preparing this presentation. I was also recently asked to be part of the Lunch & Learn DB panel. I’m very excited for that too!

See You Soon

I can’t wait to get to this conference and get back into the swing of things. It’s been a long three years. I’ve missed so many of my friends and colleagues as well as presenting in person. I look forward to seeing you soon! In the meantime, you can see my presentations below and attend a session (or two). 🙂

How to be a Superhero (Using the Oracle Cloud Free Tier)

Oracle’s Always Free Tier of cloud services provides capable set of tools for no cost to you. This session will review what’s available with these free cloud services including virtual machines, storage, autonomous databases, APEX, and the ability to use machine learning. We’ll explore how these free services work and what can be done with them, how you can learn some modern tech skills, and use them to create proof of concept systems.

Objective 1: Review the Oracle Always Free Tier of cloud services.

Objective 2: Overview of Oracle APEX and Machine Learning in the Free Tier.

Objective 3: Demonstrate how you can combine these tools, to create fast proof of concept systems.

Journey to the Center of Oracle Machine Learning

Curious about what Oracle Machine Learning is all about? This session will give you an introduction to Oracle’s Machine Learning feature. Learn how this feature is available not only in the Oracle Cloud (free tier or paid) but also in the latest versions of the Oracle database (including Standard Edition 2) for free! Understand how to build and deploy machine learning models for predictive analytics. We’ll review some basic demos of how you can leverage Machine Learning for your own applications.

Objective 1: Understand the basics of the Oracle Machine Learning feature.

Objective 2: Learn how to build and deploy machine learning models.

Objective 3: Review basic demos on how to leverage Machine Learning.
