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.

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…

OTN Tour LAD – Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala

OTN Tour Latin America 2016 is ready to take off And for me it’s the first time in 4 years that I won’t be able to participate. Which is very sad as it is such a great thing to meet all these wonderful people, not only from the User Groups doing all the orga stuff but also discussing with customers, learning from skilled and knowledgeable co-presenters, the entire travel, the wonderful cities … I miss this already. Maybe next year … Nevertheless, the Database Upgrade team will present – and thanks to the tour organizers for accepting the talks of…

Thanks to our User Groups in Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico!

I just have a few moments in the airport to say “Thanks!” to the Oracle User Groups in Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico for a great series of events last week.

And thanks especially to everybody who  came to learn about the variety of topics: Database Upgrades, Oracle Database 12c, Hadoop, EBS, Enterprise Manager, and more. Mike and I are looking forward to the OTN Tour events next week in Montevideo, Buenos Aires, and São Paulo!
