UKOUG TECH 16 is coming – and I’m speaking

Uhhh … time flies. I look into my calendar – and UKOUG TECH 16 Conference is almost there. Just a few days to go (and hopefully no Lufthansa strike on the upcoming weekend – but I looked already for alternatives). Anyhow, I’m excited and look forward to my 2nd TECH conference. Last year was the first time for me and I enjoyed it a lot. Very good audience, good location – even though I can’t say much about the city of Birmingham as I haven’t seen anything except for the venue, my hotel and an Indian restaurant. Well, …

SANGAM and DOAG Conferences 2016

The upcoming weeks will involve a lot of travel 😉

I’m looking forward to present at SANGAM Conference in Bangalore, India on Nov 11 and 12 for the first time.

I will have two sessions at SANGAM:

There are so many interesting talks in the agenda (please click here) – the organizers have done a fantastic job.

Then I’m heading straight back to present at the German Oracle User Group Conference (DOAG) for the … let me think … 14th (?) time. So no time for jet lag. And glad that it will be a home match again …

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 …

DOAG Conference – Recap

This year’s 2013 conference was the best DOAG Conference I have attended so far (and it was my 11th conference).  Actually due to the fact that I’ve had just one presentation (Working with Oracle Multitenant in the Real World – thanks to everybody coming by in the huge TOKIO room – that was really fun!) and a DOAG TV interview I’ve had enough time to see some other presentations. I did actually enjoy the Oak Table Stream in room SHANGHAI a lot – so many good stuff, I have really learned a lot.

So thanks to the organizers from …

DOAG – German Oracle User Group Conference

This time I had only one presentation at the DOAG Conference in Nürnberg (actually that’s my hometown so it’s always great for me to be there).

And – as always – it was great to meet all the Oracle users again. For me that’s the best opportunity to get in touch with customers I know for a looooong long time, Oracle colleagues from Germany – and even some US colleagues such as Hermann Baer, Markus Michalewicz and Tom Kyte presented as well. Sometimes you feel like being at a big family event 😉

And thanks to those you stayed for …
