With the latest version of Toad for Oracle on the streets, the Toad User Conference season is with us again enabling us to showcase what’s new in Toad and other related products and for Toad users to network with each other to share experiences.
We have been running Toad User Groups and Conferences since 2002 and they have been extremely popular with our Toad community and with people who are new to Toad. Most events have multiple tracks where Quest Toad technical experts can demonstrate the various editions of Toad to audiences of developers, analysts and DBAs so they can actually see the products providing value in context with “real world” problems and challenges. We also invite guest speakers from our customer base to share their experiences about how Toad helped them in their business.
We first showcased Toad for Oracle 11.0 during last week’s Oracle Open World conference in San Francisco where over 3500 people visited our booth.

This week, I’ve been attending the annual Toad User Konference in Munich and Cologne, Germany where we have a developer and DBA track covering Toad 11 as well as development and database administration best practices and tips & tricks.

For full details of what’s included in the new Toad for Oracle 11.0 release as well as details about other products which make up the various Toad Editions, please read my new Technical Brief
Also showcased is our new Toad for Data Analysts 3.0
which now has a new Professional Edition for performing data analytics as well as adding support for Sybase, Vertica and Teradata.
These events also enable us to inform users about our latest range of Toad products for supporting new technologies such as NoSQL, Cloud
– all of which have been covered extensively at Oracle Open World as well as Toads for supporting application development in Eclipse
and Visual Studio 2010
Next week, I’m presenting at the Toad 11 Launch Event in Seoul, South Korea where we are expecting around 150 attendees. South Korea has hundreds of loyal Toad followers who are very enthusiastic about Toad and frequently attend these very well organized events, as the Toad 10 Launch Event in 2009 demonstrated.
