Another Taste of India– ODevCYatra 2018

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:

My personal best memory is probably from this session on Machine Learning, also in Hyderabad – with standing room only:
