I spent a long time in bed last night, but it was quite fitful sleep. As a result, I slept in late this morning, which wasn’t really a problem as I was not speaking until 14:45.
The Bangkok event was a single-track event, with the following running order.
- คุณนพรัตน์ วาณิชฤดี : Amazing Oracle SQL
- Daniel Morgan : Oracle 12c: One Year of Hand’s On Later
- Ajith Narayanan : How Oracle 12c Flexes Its Muscles Against Oracle 11gR2
- Joel Perez : Oracle Database 12c: Manual Rolling Upgrade from Single to RAC
- คุณเชียระนนท์ ทิมกุล : Overview of Oracle Business Intelligence
- Edward Roske : Getting Value from Big Data with Analytics
- Tim Hall : PL/SQL: Stop Making the Same Performance Mistakes
- คุณพิชญศักดิ์ เสนาไชย : Oracle Database Monitoring with AAS
I arrived just as Dan was finishing his session. I’m sure I’ll get to see it in Auckland. It was a rapid-fire event, with a few small breaks. It was nice to get to see everyone, but it would have been better if I was not so rushed for time. As soon as my session was over I only had time to take a few pictures, then I was rushing off to the airport to start the next leg of my journey. Next time I will try to stay longer…
Thanks to everyone in Bangkok for organising the event and keeping everyone on schedule. It would have got really tricky if things had run behind schedule.
So tonight I start the journey to Auckland. I’ve got about 6 days left of the tour and because of the way time zones work, about 3 days of that time is on a plane. I could have done with the Auckland event being in the middle of the tour, so I would be half way home now, rather than travelling to the furthest point before heading home. I’m sure it will be worth it. The Kiwi event is good fun and I will hopefully get to meet up with some of my friends who live in NZ.
