OTN Tour South America 2017: Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil

Time flies – and the OTN Tour South America 2017: Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil is over for me. I’m back home. OTN Tour South America 2017: Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil But Id like to thank many people. It was an awesome tour again. I participated for the forth time. And I learned a lot again. From customers who discussed their upgrades and migrations with me. From the other presenters who did a terrific job. A very big Thank You to all the people who organized the events. I liked it a lot. And you deserve a lot of credits for…

OTN Tour Latin America 2017 – See you soon (again)

Oracle OTN Tour Latin America 2017 – Database Upgrade Team will be there. I did not participate in last year’s LAD OTN Tour through Latin and South America. And to be honest: I really missed it. So this year is a new chance. I will head out in less than a week and start my journey in Uruguay, then Argentina and finally Brazil. Unfortunately there was no possibility to include more stops even though I would have loved to see other places and customers as well. The good news: Hector and Byron from the Upgrade Team will cover many of…

No tech stuff this morning 🙂 I’m still so exited. It was a true thriller yesterday with 127 minutes of suspense, fights and even blood – and chances on both sides.

Muchas gracias, Buenos Aires :-)

Again, thanks a lot to everybody who did attend to our Lab at the OTN Tour 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and/or to Roy’s talk about Data Pump in Oracle Database 12c and my presentation about News in Database Upgrades to Oracle Database 12c on August 7. It was our pleasure to meet and work together with you. And thanks to the local folks of ArOUG organizing such a great event and taking care on us. And – on another note – the person who did accidentally take one of our 64GB thumb drives at the Hands-On-Lab may please send it…

OTN Tour South America: Uruguay, Argentina & Brazil

I really don’t look forward to a 20 hour trip in coach from Munich to Montevideo, Uruguay. But I’m looking forward to meet and see many tech folks in Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Sao Paolo during the next week. Roy and I will deliver a Hands-On-Lab in Montevideo on Monday and in Buenos Aires on Wednesday. Plus presentations on Tuesday, Thursday and finally Saturday in Sao Paolo. Well, and our colleagues in Brazil have taken the chance to schedule 3 customer visits in Rio and Sao Paolo on Friday in between 🙂 After this week I will need a few…
