I’m at HotSos Symposium 2015 speaking this week, so thought I would blog about the results of the conference I’m the director of and that finished up just two weeks ago. I’m not admitting to being overwhelmed by OEM questions here, as I’m rather enjoying it. I love seeing folks so into Enterprise Manager and look forward to more! Keep the ideas for more blog posts coming! I’ll write on all these great topics in (more...)
I have to kick off this post with a huge apology to my dedicated readers for not posting recently. As I am sure you are all aware, the Northeast has been experiencing some crazy snow storms, and Boston has turned completely white. The almost constant snowfall has made my life incredibly hectic because school keeps getting canceled and chasing my 3 little ones (under the age of 6) it makes it hard to stay on top (more...)
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Alliance conference in Nashville next month. I was just reviewing my schedule and see lots of interesting technical sessions (as always).

The session is titled PeopleSoft PeopleTools Developer: Tips and Techniques. See you in a few weeks!
Dec. 2, 2014 marked the first ODTUG Oracle Mobile Day, hosted at Oracle Headquarters in Reston, VA. This is a format we hope to replicate in different cities across the US and in Europe in the future. We were really excited to have with us Suhas Uliyar, Oracle’s VP of Mobile Strategy and Product Management, and the visionary behind Oracle mobility. I had the honor of introducing him to (more...)
Last week I did a quick hop, skip, and a jump across the pond to Nuremberg, Germany for the DOAG usergroup conference. Although I was only there for a total of 54 hours, I’m so glad I made the effort to attend. I was especially honored to go to represent ODTUG as we further attempt to increase cooperation and connect with fellow user groups around the world.
Last week I attended the East Coast Oracle User Group conference, also known as ECO, in Raleigh, NC. This being my first time at ECO, it was a good event for being a two day conference. The low-key environment provided a nice, comfortable environment for interaction between the speakers and those in attendance. If you ever have the chance to catch this conference, it would be a good one to attend.
What you can expect (more...)
I just returned from my first trip to Utah where I briefly (I was only there for 28 hours!) touched down in Salt Lake City to attend the UTOUG Fall Symposium.
Before I give you the run down, if you just want to cut to the chase, here are the session slides:
Some of you have asked if the “Introducing the eDB360 Tool” session at the Oaktable World 2014 was recorder. Actually it was, and thanks to Kyle Hailey it is now available as well as the slides. Just go to the agenda of this event and click on corresponding link. There you will also find video and/or slides for all other sessions.
Thanks Kyle for making this possible!

Top 7 Reasons Why Oracle Conferences Are A Waste Of Time
Want to turn a lame Oracle Database conference experience into a great one? You may not believe this, but I think Oracle conferences are a waste of time. That is, unless I take action. I've been to hundreds of Oracle conferences, so I'm kind of an expert in this field.
Here is my "Top 7" list about why Oracle conferences are time suckers and (more...)
OpenWorld is only a couple of weeks away. As always, this promises to be an outstanding conference. Whether your focus is functional or technical, OpenWorld has a lot of PeopleSoft sessions.

I’m off to the Netherlands for the first and finest Oracle User Experience Event in Europe, arranged by Oracle Platinum Partner AMIS Services BV at their offices in Nieuwegein.
AMIS and Oracle are pulling out all the stops – Oracle is flying in their top UX talent to speak, AMIS has lined up some of their experienced consultants, and they’ve even invited a few outside experts (like me).

I’m speaking on two topics:
- How to tailor an application to your user’s needs without coding
- How to implement a good User Experience in Oracle ADF for the cases where you do need to write (more...)
It is hard to believe it has been a year since the HEUG Alliance 2013. We had a lot of fun in Indianapolis. I have been reviewing the 2014 session lineup and it looks pretty exciting. I must say that I am very pleased to see several sessions on REST, iScripts, and User Experience. With Alliance 2014 just a couple of weeks away, I wanted to make sure I posted my schedule:

Looks like it’s time to start planning for the IDM conference schedule. There are some great conferences planned and I need to figure out how to start budgeting for some of these. Let me know if I have missed any conferences that should be listed.
