    Presenting at ODTUG Kscope19
In this three-part series, we take a closer look at how to create an ODTUG Kscope session abstract, how abstracts are selected, and how presenters bring those abstracts to life during a session.

Part II: Selecting the Abstract by Jay Chapman,Sierra-Cedar, Inc.
For this installment, I interviewed Teal Sexton, ODTUG Kscope19 content chair for the EPM Reporting, BI Analytics, and Data Visualization track to get a deeper understanding of the abstract selection process. Download the full article.

How Healthy Is Smart View? by Director Cropped.png Glenn Schwartzberg, interRel Consulting
Have you ever wanted to know what might conflict with your Smart View install? How about setting the timeout values without having to figure out hex codes and fiddle with the registry? 
While it has been out for a while now (I think over a year and a half), most people don't know about the health check built into Smart View. The Smart View development team has given us something very useful, if we just knew it existed.

EPM Meetup's Overview
Monterrey Mexico Meetup Recap by ACE Cropped.png Gary Adashek, GE Digital 
The Meetup was hosted by the Camino Real hotel, and the pre-arrangements were done by Alberto Rodriguez. There was swag set up on a table as well as light appetizers for everyone to enjoy prior to the event. Then it started. I kicked off by introducing ODTUG and giving a brief introduction about myself, why I love ODTUG, and how fortunate I am to attend ODTUG Kscope year after year. We then had two technical sessions on Oracle Data Visualization and Dodeca. The event concluded with a opportunity for everyone to mingle, socialize, and network.
