July 2018 saw another edition of the Oracle Developers’ tour through India, called Yatra. In just over two weeks, seven cities participated in this tour – with each city hosting a one day mini-conference (three of four parallel tracks).
Organized by many volunteers from the local chapters of the All India Oracle User Group, coordinated by Sai Penumuru Janakiram – who did a really tremendous job – this was another great experience. The Oracle ACE Program/Oracle Developer Community were proud sponsors of the event.
I estimate that in the range of 2000 attendees – perhaps many more? – attended across these seven locations. The range of speakers, topics and sessions was fairly broad – from Exadata to KSQL and from Machine Learning to Buffer Cache Internals. Most speakers are in this picture from the initiation ceremony in Hyderabad:
Many pictures for all of the seven sites can be downloaded from http://odevcyatra.in/downloads/2018-odevc/ . This address also hosts the presentations from all sessions. The Tweet Thread for the ODevCYatra: https://twitter.com/hashtag/odevcyatra?src=hash&lang=en
My personal best memory is probably from this session on Machine Learning, also in Hyderabad – with standing room only:
