When I knew that the ACE Director, Bjoern Rost of Portrix Systems was coming to Singapore on his way to begin the OTN APAC tour, I suggested he stay at mine for a few days and sample all that Singapore has to offer.
Then a thought occurred to me. While he was here, why not setup an informal Oracle users meetup, much like the various ones at cities around the world like Sydney, Birmingham and London (to name but three I’m aware of). Morten Egan, my new colleague and Oak Table luminary had already suggested to me months ago that we should get something going in Singapore, so why not start now?
Well, in a matter of a few days, we’ve put together an agenda, a room, we will be having pizza and beer and other drinks and three hopefully useful sessions from experienced speakers.
Here is the agenda (SingaporeOracleSessions.pdf) and a map (SOSMap.pdf) to help you get to the venue which is very handily placed near Bugis MRT. All that’s required to register is to email me at dougburns at Yahoo. There are currently 21 people registered but the room holds (believe it or not) 42, so spread the word!
Hopefully, it’s just the beginning ….
