NoCOUG Conference 100 sponsored by Quest Software—Simplicity at Work
The Northern California Oracle Users Group (NoCOUG) is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2011. The upcoming conference at the Computer History Museum on November 9 is NoCOUG’s 100th quarterly conference and the upcoming issue of the NoCOUG Journal will be the 100th issue.
NoCOUG Conference 100 is sponsored by Quest Software and will feature the world’s top Oracle experts and speakers including Steven Feuerstein, Craig Shallahamer, Alex Gorbachev, Dan Tow, and Andrew Zitelli. It will be held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View—a fitting location for such an occasion. The museum features marvelous computing artifacts such as a Hollerith Tabulating Machine and an actual operational Babbage Difference Engine—one of two that have been constructed in the past decade.
The 100th issue of the NoCOUG Journal will feature an interview with Michael Stonebraker—the high priest of relational databases—as well as the research paper by Dr. Edgar Codd that started the relational revolution in 1970—A Shared Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks.
Because of the significance of the occasion and the venue, as many as 400 attendees are expected at Conference 100.
