Syed Jaffar has been nominated “DBA of the year 2011”!

Posted by Kamran Agayev A. on September 21, 2011

Yesterday I got great news about one of my DBA friends, Syed Jaffar Hussain – he has been nominated “DBA of the year 2011” by Oracle Magazine Editors choice. I congratulate him for this title and must say he really deserves it.

I met Syed from OTN forums and he helped me a lot in the first days of my career. Being OCP, OCM and ACE Director, he has done a lot of job for the Oracle Community. I haven’t met him yet personally 🙂 , but hope to catch him at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 at San Francisco this year

If you want to congratulate him directly, check the following link at his own blog:



P.S. I’ve done an interesting exclusive interview with him 2 years ago, you can check it from the following link:

September has come, and it’s the month of Oracle OpenWorld conference. This year is the first time I’ll be in this conference, and I’ll try to attend it each year for sure

I’ll update my blog (and fb) with OOW news and interesting photos (and videos)

In this conference I’ll attend 23 difference sessions that will be presented by top Oracle world-known experts like Tom Kyte, Richard Foote, Alex Gorbachev, Daniel Morgan and etc. Being an Oracle ACE and attending an Oracle OpenWorld conference is a special case 🙂  The following is my agenda

September 18 – Landing to San Francisco

September 19 – OOW begins. Attending 5 sessions

        Oracle ACE Dinner on a cruise with more than 125 ACE and ACEDs! Woooow … 🙂

September 20 –  Presenting at Unconference on “RMAN 11g new features” at Hotel Parc in the Lombard room at 9.00AM 
  Attending 6 sessions

  Attending an OTN Night at Yerba Buena’s Garden and meet OTN stuff there


September 21 –  Attending 5 sessions

  Attending (Unconference) session “OTN Forum Members get together” which is organized by Dan Morgan and Jusing Kestelyn

  Attending 7 sessions

That’s my plan for now. Can’t imagine that I’ll meet all my online friends-gurus after long years and talk to them face to face 🙂
