DOAG Conference 2022 is next week already

I’m scared – time flies so quickly. Yesterday evening I returned from vacation, and this morning I spoke to Daniel and we both realized: There is only one week to go since DOAG Conference 2022 is next week already. Yes, in September 2022. Not as usually in November – September it will be this year. And we hope to see you there next week in my hometown, Nürnberg for another great DOAG conference.

DOAG 2019 – Recap and a personal complaint

Nürnberg and München are just 175 km away from each other, a bit more than 1 hour by train. Still I felt a post-conference blues already when I boarded the ICE train yesterday to head back to the south. It was an awesome conference – again. Except for one thing which I will write about below. So here’s my report on DOAG 2019 – Recap and a personal complaint.

DOAG Conference 2019 – Our talks in Nürnberg next week

Time flies so quickly. And in case you wondered about the silence on the blog and on twitter, I was either traveling the past weeks or on holidays. But it’s November. And November is DOAG conference month. So please find an overview about DOAG Conference 2019 – Our talks in Nürnberg next week.

DOAG – When, where, why?

Actually DOAG (German Oracle User Group) conference is one of the most important events for me every year. Not only because since far over a decade in my hometown, Nürnberg, Franconia, but for me it means meeting with a lot of …

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

Deutschland ist Weltmeister!!!

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. But overall I think Germany was the better team not only yesterday but throughout the entire tournament. Last time when Germany became Weltmeister (World Champion) in Italy in 1990 I was in Turkey on after-school-vacation celebrating a win over … well, Argentina 🙂

And this time I watched the match again with friends in an Italian restaurant in Munich – and the best team of the World Cup 2014

So please find the updated locations here – and enter the registration by clicking on the location/date directly.
