The Value Proposition

Sign up now to reserve your limited spot.  You will be getting a full day of training and your own Oracle Cloud account to practice.  Thats right, you are getting all this value for only $499.00  (for non-members of NoCOUG), but…

EVEN BETTER…  e have a few slots left where you can come as a “Viscosity Guest” for an incredible discount.   The price is so low, that we are not able to disclose it online.

After you complete the subscription form, we will email you a special code to use as our guest.  We will also tell you the amount of the discount and we think you will be very pleased, considering all the value you’re getting.

I’d like to come, but I have another obligation that I cannot miss!  What can I do?

We understand, weddings, soccer games, and job interviews must take precedence.  While coming in person is the absolute best way to drink from the fountain in this information packed event, we have an alternative for you if necessary.

If you truly cannot attend but would still like to have the written workshop materials, just fill out the form now and indicate that you cannot attend via the checkbox to the right.

After the event, we will send you the slides, handouts, materials and photos from the event.  It will be almost as if you were there!

In 2017, Oracle adopted their Cloud First Policy; all new innovations in their flagship database technology stack will be deployed first in Oracle Public Cloud (Oracle Cloud) and eventually released for general availability to the public. With the release of Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (Oracle 12cR2), Oracle practiced what their policy stated it would do, they deployed Oracle Database 12c Release 2 to Oracle Cloud in September 2016 and eventually released it to the public in March 2017.


  • Oracle Database 12c Release 1 and 2 New Features
  • Integration and migration strategies to the latest Oracle hardware platform and/or to Oracle Cloud
  • Leverage Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Cloud Control 13c to rapidly provision databases with Snapshot/Cloning techniques
  • Perform zero-downtime database migrations and upgrades
  • Upgrading to Oracle Database 12c Release 2 in-place and out-of-place
