Just a short 104 days to go until the number one Java event is going to happen again. JavaOne
opens it's doors again beginning 28th of September till the 2nd of October this year. After intense months of work in the program committee
for both the Server-side Java and the Java in the Cloud track, where we dug through all the proposals
the final program has been selected and the notifications have been send out. (more...)
Time is running away these days. So many things happening in parallel and of course the most important Java conference is in the middle of everything. JavaOne 2014
closed the CfP doors already and voting is well underway. There are very few things the Program Committee
is allowed to talk about but after having skipped that kind of analysis last year it was time for me to ask for permission and so I can start (more...)
tl;dr:Do not use public Google+ Hangouts under any circumstances, because people suck.
Before the PyCon 2014 CFP came due, PyLadies hosted several G+ hangouts for talk proposal brainstorming. Potential speakers could talk over and flesh out their ideas with each other, producing better talk proposals. More importantly, it was a nice psychological stepping stone on the way to filling out that big, scary CFP form all alone. I thought they went great.
I wanted (more...)
It's been an amazing week. Being announced as a features speaker
put some more pressure as usual on me. But heading out to San Francisco for the second time this year was amazing. The typical hazels with a 10+ hour flight and immigration are easy to leave behind when you arrive in sunny and warm weather.
The inaugural DevNation
happened this year being the new open source, polyglot conference for application developers and maintainers. Directly next (more...)
This morning the kind folks at AUSOUG
sent me an e-mail asking who I'd like to see present which topics at the Perth/Melbourne conferences in November this year.
To perhaps help get you started, I thought I'd mention who I submitted - in part as a hint to those nominees that there is at least one person who would like to see you present in Austraila this year.
The survey asks for 2 Australian/2 international/2 (more...)
Collaborate 14 is coming soon and i can tell you that it is an excellent content learning and networking opportunity. I have been going to collaborate for a while and have found it to be not only a place to learn but also to network with my peers . We built the team to write the Practical Oracle Database Appliance which is available here
at Collaborate 13 and were able to deliver a book with authors (more...)
Please consider participating in TRUCEConf (March 18-19 in Cincinnati)!
The goal is to help the tech community heal, through learning from others outside our industry and having an open dialogue and on how we can be better humans to each other in the world of tech.
You may remember fierce controversy around TRUCEConf when virtually nothing was known about it but its name; without solid information, it was easy to read bad connotations into the (more...)
I'm pretty proud to announce, that I will be speaking at the annual OUGN spring seminar again. After my first time last year I was once again invited to speak by the Norwegian Oracle User Group (OUGN).
Last year's trip was sheer pleasure and I am very much looking forward to exciting talks and the unique conference experience that cruise ship provides. You can look at my photo sets on Google+ (Day 1

As of today the (more...)

I am looking forward to participating again to the UKOUG annual conference

I have just had a VERY. Busy. Week. (In a good way!) I've promised the world many talk materials, so:
As for Postgres Open, I absolutely loved (more...)
I'm happy to say that I'll shortly be starting a new position as a PostgreSQL DBA and Python developer for Zoro Tools!
We software types seem to have hardware envy sometimes. We have "builds" and "engines" and "forges" and "factory functions". But as it turns out, the "Tools" in "Zoro (more...)
Are you signed up yet for Ohio LinuxFest on Sep. 13-15? I'll be there to present
IPython for non-Pythonistas
Break out of your (bash) shell! IPython and the IPython Notebook have swept over the Python programming community, but they're not just for Python programmers - they make for high-powered shell (more...)
Loved PyOhio once again! Thanks so much to everybody who came, participated, and made it happen! I get such a rush of joy from seeing the Ohio Union fill up with happy Pythonistas.
PyOhio has been a classic case of the Stone Soup story. When we started planning the first (more...)
Among the many great talks
coming to PyOhio at the end of this month:
The IPython Notebook Revolution Catherine Devlin If you think of IPython as simply an enhanced version of the live Python prompt, you are in need of re-education. No matter what you do with Python, applying the (more...)

The sponsors this year were REvolution analytics, Google, R-Studio, Oracle, and TIBCO. Other companies like OpenAnalytics and Mango Solutions were also present with a booth stand.

Friday night i finally arrived after a long flight from Vienna to Washington to New Orleans, whereas the flights were pretty good, it is just that endless series of waiting lines that is tiresome.
Anyway, i’m here and – as usual – still working on my slides and demos with the hope to impress at least some of the attendees :-)
These are my presentations for the coming days there at Kscope13:
A specialist is someone who knows a lot about a topic. He specializes and specializes and knows ever more about an ever smaller knowledge area. And in the end, he knows everything about nothing.
I’ve just submitted my abstracts for the UKOUG Technology Conference in December, and I was forced (more...)
