DOAG 2017 Conference – Upgrade Talks and More

It’s November. November is DOAG time. Time really flies. And the German Oracle User Group Conference till kick off in a bit more than a week from now on. For me it’s like visiting a huge event where I know so many people: it’s almost like a friends& family meetup. Only strange thing: we all get older … ­čśë I’m really looking forward to DOAG 2017 Conference from Nov 21-24, 2017. And if you are not a German native speaker, don’t worry at all. Many talks get simultaneously translated into English. The translators are amazingly good. It’s worth to visit….

Guess how I realize that it’s just 4 weeks and a bit towards Christmas? When DOAG (German Oracle User Group) Conference is happening in my hometown N├╝rnberg in mid November every year.

DOAG Conference – Recap

This year’s 2013 conference was the best DOAG Conference I have attended so far (and it was my 11th conference).┬á 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 the…

DOAG – German Oracle User Group Conference

This time I had only one presentation at the DOAG Conference in N├╝rnberg (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 ­čśë And thanks to those you stayed for…
