There are a lot of interesting sessions, so I decided to just go over just the Application Development and Datawarehousing groups to narrow my possible interested sessions, but still it was hard for me to choose several session over their alternatives. Just a small note here, creating a personal schedule does not guarantee those session access and it is advised to arrive at least 10 minutes before session start time to ensure the access.
I still will be needing some additional slots for the Unconference tradition, 11g Exam Cram Session at OCP Lounge, ACE hours at OTN Lounge and of course I want to meet with some of my friends from Oracle Commmunity. I feel like Tom Cruise at Mission Impossible but I am still opened for other session advises :)
