Upgrade to Oracle Database 12.2 – Slides are available

The workshops in Brussels and Utrecht were awesome with great audience – I enjoyed both events a lot.

Recap – OTN Tour EMEA – Baku, Azerbaijan – 2016

Working on a Saturday is not common for me but happens from time to time mostly when I travel abroad or when a customer has a critical upgrade or migration on a weekend. Having 120 skilled and enthusiastic people in a conference day on a Saturday is VERY UNCOMMON. And having them stay from 9am to 6pm is a sign that the selection of topics fit the interest of the audience – and the presenters got their attention the entire day. Please find the slides and the Hands-On-Lab here: Ensure Performance Stability When Upgrading Oracle Databases Upgrade, Migrate, Consolidate to…

Recap – OTN Tour EMEA – Milano, Italy – 2016

UKOUG Tech 2015 – Summary & Slides

My first UKOUG Conference is over. Actually it was over yesterday already for me as I had to head back to Germany. I would have loved to stay a bit longer and pick more of the many excellent presentations. I visited a few – and all of them were great. It was a tough choice as there were too many interesting things going on at the same time. Only finding the right room was sometimes a bit of a challenge 😉 And I would like to have met more and talked to more people. But time was very limited. I…
