UKOUG Tech18 – Recap, Slides, Videos and Impressions

UKOUG Tech18 this year was an excellent event. And even though I was very skeptical of having to travel to Liverpool where you really can’t fly into except when you live in Amsterdam, I enjoyed it a lot. Liverpool is really a lovely city. And being honest, the conference center was very nice – and IMHO better than the one in Birmingham. You had to chance to see the other conference participants and speakers. I liked it a lot. So here’s my quick UKOUG Tech18 – Recap, Slides, Videos and Impressions post. Well, and for me being a bit sick…

UKOUG Tech18 : See you there!

It’s time for my (and our) final conference this year: UKOUG in Liverpool. Liverpool? Yeah … the city of The Reds and The Blues (and Sunday is Merseyside derby time). The city of the greatest pop band ever, the Beatles. And well, the city which has an airport you can’t really fly into. But hey, UKOUG Tech18: See you there! Hopefully, when I’ll make it 😉 But as usual, thanks to all the people involved into this great conference. I know how much work it is – and how much of your free time you put into that. Many thanks…

UKOUG Conference TECH17 in Birmingham

The year is almost over – and I’m looking forward to my final conference this year, UKOUG Conference TECH17 in Birmingham.

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, business travel…

UKOUG: SIG (RAC, Cloud, Database, …) – 12 Oct 2016

Wow … time flies … I think it was February or March this year when I’d got invited to the UKOUG SIG for RAC, Database, Cloud, Infrastructure in London on Oct 12, 2016. Just a week ago I looked into my calendar and realized: Book a flight. Now! We have to arrange travel at least 7 days before departure as otherwise extra approvals may be required. Time flies … The room number in the picture above was the one of my hotel room in Baku earlier this year in May 😉 And of course on Wednesday I will talk about…

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…
