What are the best conferences to attend?

What are the best conferences to attend to build your knowledge of Oracle, either as a developer or DBA. I assume some are better from a technical perspective and others from a networking/community perspective?

UKOUG seems to be OK (after a couple of days), lots of talks to go to and networking opportunities. Although it does seem to be geared towards app and middleware than core database training

Hotsos was probably the best conference I attended in terms of technical content. I'll be going to RMOUG this year, so I can compare :)

In terms of networking, I think the best value I got is from the conferences my local usergroup (NoCOUG) organizes. They have conferences 4 times a year, and I've been going there for 3 years now and there are many regulars. The repeated meetings with a small group makes for very strong connections - which is my favorite mode of networking (collecting millions of business cards of people you don't know at all is not useful to me)

ODTUG sponsored events are always excellent. They cater to the developer, and the sessions are by users for users.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
