Replacing Oracle with GemStone/S: The Agony and the Ecstacy
Monday 4:45:00 pm to 5:30:00 pm
Abstract: Replacing Oracle with GemStone/S was a painfully process. Despite the pain, it is paying off handsomely. This presentation will cover the business, cultural and technical aspects of making such a transition.
Bio: I've spent the last several years(1996-1999) building and enhancing web systems for the travel industry in VisualWave and GemStone/S.
After a couple of years working as a Software Engineer at GemStone, I'm back in app development. My current project is replacing Oracle with GemStone/S as the Transaction DB for a banking application. There's nothing more satisfying that ripping out O-R mapping code. ;-)
See you in Seattle!
