Time really flies. As every year in November. Right after DOAG, there’s very little time for me to recharge batteries. And once I take a deep breath, I will sit in another airplane and fly to … England. No worries, I won’t do any political jokes. This is not necessary these days. And this is a techie blog. But I’m very happy that I don’t have to do any special preparation to visit UKOUG TechFest 2019 in Brighton – Dec 1-4, 2019.
To be honest, I know not much about Brighton. Except …Continue reading...
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 2019 – What an agenda
I knew it before already. But my VP, Roy Swonger, visited DOAG Conference in Nürnberg for the first time. …Continue reading...
There was a bit of silence on the blog – well, I needed a deep breath and plenty of fresh air on the most beautiful German island. And now it’s time to dig in again. And I realized that I won’t have many “office” days this month. September is CONFERENCE month – back to reality.

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 …Continue reading...
The cruise is over 🙂 And what an excellent event. Congratualations to Alice, Frank, Øyvind and all the other great people from the OUGN. I had plenty of fun, met great people – and here are the slides for the two presentations I gave:
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to Oracle Database Upgrades
This slide deck will give an overview about how to approach a database upgrade project, the risk and costs of not upgrading and the news in the Upgrade space for Oracle Database 12c upgrades
- What’s New in Data Pump in Oracle 12c
This overview about general Data Pump best
I’m back in business after being out for almost two weeks. And tonight I will fly out to Oslo in Norway to participate in the OUGN Spring Conference 2014. It’s my first user group conference in Norway and it will be very special as it will happen on a ship. No escape 🙂
And Lufthansa’s pilots did a great job in making my travel another nice Lufthansa surprise package. Due to the upcoming 3 day strike my flight to Oslo got canceled last night at 18:25h – as if Lufthansa wouldn’t know about the strike days before …Continue reading...
