In-person Upgrade Workshops in Brussels and Utrecht

For a long time we haven’t met in person I guess. But I know very well that the audiences in Brussels, Belgium, and Utrecht, Netherlands, are very active.

When will it happen?

Very simple – and you are just one click away:

COVID-19 – Corona Virus – Event Cancellations for March/April 2020

As you all can read from the press or see on TV or your preferred internet news page (not Facebook!!!), things here in Europe and I guess in the rest of the world change rapidly. In January we may have looked with interest or fear towards China and kept our fingers crossed, but since early February it is clear that the virus couldn’t be contained.

I’m really impressed. Really!!! And you were such a great audience. I’ve had plenty of fun, lots of good discussions during the breaks and after the workshop.

As the auditorium room at the Oracle location in Utrecht fits just 120 people the local marketing folks had the idea of asking Jost if he can stream the workshop to another room. The other option would have been to reject …

Upcoming UPGRADE Workshops in:
Netherlands, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Spain and Belgium

Wow … another OOW is over … I have returned well but a bit jetlaged on Saturday from San Fransciso. It was a pleasure to meet with so many great customers, partners, Oracle ACEs, geeks and of course colleagues from all over the world.

And I’m still surprised how little DBAs and managers are aware of the upcoming end of Premier Support for Oracle Database 11.2 and still believe in “The 2nd Release Only”. But I’ll write something about this later this or next week.

And as soon as my time allows (most likely in the 2nd half of October) …
