OSWOUG Event in Portland

I’m on my way back home after spending the day in Portland for the OSWOUG (Oregon and South Washington Oracle User Group) event. As usual (mostly) I’m writing about conferences and events I’m attending, especially if I had a good time. It all started a few months ago when I met Jon Wasserman at the … Continue reading OSWOUG Event in Portland

High Five POUG: Polish Oracle User Group Conference?

I’ve just returned from presenting at the 2nd annual POUG Conference, this time in Krakow, Poland (the first was in Warsaw). This is the Polish Pint with Oracle User Group conference and is exactly what a conference should be. Educational, Informative, Well-executed and Fun.  It was based in a lovely city, with a wonderful friendly people, good food and great beer!

The Speakers gift was very thoughtful - a personalised t-shirt which my wife has declared too good to wear!

As you might imagine, with a name like Pint with Oracle User Group (more...)

The Best KScope I’ve Been to

OK, so KScope17 was my first KScope, don’t be petty about it. I also know that it’s been already a month, but I’ve been doing a lot and didn’t have time to write. A week after KScope we’ve been to a family vacation in Alaska, then I went to a concert in Seattle (Counting Crows … Continue reading The Best KScope I’ve Been to

Birth of a user group conference…

Or, how post-conference blues hit.

Seeding

You don’t actually get to witness these kinds of things to often. Yes, there was the birth of POUG conference, the passionate work of Kamil Stawiarski and the people he gathered around him. He did an awesome job and pulled it off.
Why then is this so special? Well, first of all because it is my native conference. People that have contributed for many years, working closely together (more...)

Friday Philosophy – New Conference, Same Sad Old Faces Up Front

I’ve been on the Oracle conference presenting circuit for well over a decade now and I must confess I enjoy it. Part of this is that I see lots of friends at nearly every conference – even in countries I have never been to before. This is because many of those friends are fellow presenters, who have been presenting for well over a decade now…

There he goes again, banging on and on and on…

Get out and talk to others

Coming back from APEX connect last week in Berlin, I realized once again how important events like this are.

Having skipped some conferences in the past 6 months due to our second sons arrival, APEX connect was a welcome change to dirty diapers ;-)

Anyway, I particular want to point out the importance of getting out of your usual environment (office) and meet other people working with similar technologies. Everyone you meet at events like (more...)

OracleCode London 2017

My colleague & boss Ace Director Luis Weir and I where invited to present at Thursday 20th’s Oracle Code London.

oracle_codeThe request to present came late as we where needed to cover someone who had to cancel (not that we aren’t grateful for the opportunity). This did mean getting the presentation together was a little bit of a scramble, unfortunately I missed a couple of sessions as I needed to assemble an environment, work out how (more...)

UKOUG Tech 2016 – Super Sunday

UKOUG 2016 is underway. This year I'm staying at the Jury's Inn hotel, one of a clutch of hotels within a stone's throw of the ICC. Proximity is the greatest luxury. My room is on the thirteenth floor, so I have a great view across Birmingham; a view, which in the words of Telly Savalas "almost takes your breath away".

Although the conference proper - with keynotes, exhibition hall and so on - opens today, (more...)

UKOUG Conference 2016 coming up fast

The weather has turned cold, the lights are twinkling in windows and Starbucks is selling pumpkin lattes. Yes, it's starting to look a lot like Christmas. But first there's the wonder-filled advent calendar that is the UKOUG Annual Conference in Birmingham, UK. So many doors to choose from!

The Conference is the premier event for Oracle users in the UK (and beyond). This year has another cracker of an agenda: check it out.
