OTN Tour – South America – 2011 – Day 2


After completing San Jose moving on to Quito, Ecuador.  

Boarded the plane to Quito with a stop over at Panama city.  On landing at the Quito airport I was informed that they found my missing luggage and it was here.. Continental Airlines had found it after 4 days.. hurray.. that was good news

At the event, it is always good to meet other experts from the Oracle area… we had a great team on the OTN tour.


8th July 2011  – Quito – Ecuador

My Sessions

  1. New Features in 11gR2 RAC
  2. Oracle 11g RAC for Developers
  3. Tools and Utilities for Monitoring RAC

Audience seem to be interested however all of them where on translators so really could not understand how much of the presentation they got until the end of the conference. The Q & A to the expert panel had several technical questions.


Something new that I learnt here. Ecuador uses American dollar for their currency bills but uses local coins.  I was told that they switched to this system in 2001.
