Talking about goals: this year I’ve set myself the goal of speaking at an Oracle conference. I’m trying to do this with a non-technical topic: how to sell security. It’s a bit of a gamble, but hearing that many DBAs have problems with this, I think there clearly is an audience for this.
So I found out there’s a call for papers for Harmony 2015 in Estonia. I’ve written the abstract. But why just write an abstract, when you can speak?
