ODTUG: I’m in Washington D.C…

Well, I actually got on the first standby flight. It was delayed by over an hour, then we had to wait in a hot plane for an eternity for a runway slot, but at least I made it. When I got to the hotel I met up with a few of the other Oracle ACEs […]

Bulgarian Oracle User Group (BGOUG)…

I’m back home from the BGOUG event now, having had a great time in Bulgaria. It was really cool to hook up with everyone again. I’m not great with names, but I usually remember a face and there were lots of familair faces. Dimitri Gielis and Patrick Wolf did some great presentations on APEX. I […]

BGOUG… I’m here…

I made it to Sofia, Bulgaria, without so much as a thin layer of volcanic ash on me. I got to the airport and my flight was not listed on the departures board, even though it was on the airport and Lufthansa website. I asked at the desk and they said everything was fine. What’s […]

On my way to BGOUG…

I’m at the airport and checked in, so it all looks good so far for my trip to Bulgaria (BGOUG). The ladies on the check in desk said that Lufthansa flights were running yesterday, but the website had them marked as canceled, which means all yesterdays fuss was about nothing… Cheers Tim…

Maybe I am going to BGOUG…

Since this morning the flight status has changed from canceled to OK, but the airport don’t seem to be committing to it either way. Looks like I will be going to the airport at least. Cheers Tim…

I can’t go to the BGOUG event :(

Unfortunately I will not be at the Bulgarian Oracle User Group (BGOUG) event. That pesky volcanic ash cloud has put a stop to my flights. As I’ve said before, the BGOUG event feels like a big family gathering, so I’m really annoyed at having to miss it. Sorry Tim…

NZOUG 2010 Day 2…

Day 2 started with an ACE panel session. There were more ACEs than attendees, but we all had fun chatting to each other. I guess one of the difficulties with this was it ran along side regular presentations, but such is life. Straight after that it was the second part of my PL/SQL Presentation Layers […]

NZOUG 2010 Day 1…

The day started in the normal way. First, an introduction by¬†Francisco, the new president of NZOUG, then some keynotes, then on to the presentations… One of the difficult things about being a speaker at so many conferences is you often struggle to see something on the agenda you have not already seen several times around […]
