OTN Nordic Tour 2013 – Oslo

*+-We got on the plane from Copenhagen to Oslo and met up with the OUGN folks for some food in the hotel. We spent a long time talking about non-Oracle stuff, like science and religion. It was fun. The morning started with a long breakfast, which included me nearly throwing orange juice over Mike Dietrich and him […]

OTN Nordic Tour 2013 – Copenhagen

*+-I spent the first two sessions of the DOUG event watching Mike Dietrich presenting on 12c upgrades, pluggable databases and new features. I’ve seen some of his stuff already during the LAOTN Tour (Southern Leg), but his presentations have changed a little since I last saw them. To quote Noons, “Mike’s talk is superb. No […]

OTN Nordic Tour 2013 – Stockholm

*+-I didn’t sleep too well the night before the Stockholm event, so I woke up feeling extremely groggy. I think it was just the combination of excitement and adrenalin you get before starting a tour. I met Lonneke and Sten for breakfast, then headed on to the conference venue. I watched Lonneke presenting on SOA […]

OTN Nordic Tour 2013

*+-I got up this morning in plenty of time to get to the airport to fly to Sweden to begin the OTN Nordic Tour 2013 tomorrow. I then proceeded to wait and wait and wait for the taxi. Eventually it did arrive, but now the rush hour traffic had started to build up, so time […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 : Thursday

*+-I got up late, so I missed the morning gym session. When I got to Moscone at about 08:30, I headed straight for the speakers room to play catch-up on emails, questions, blog posts and work emails. I expected that to take a few minutes, but it actually took me up to midday. It’s crazy […]

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 : Wednesday

*+-A familiar morning. Up at silly o’clock, went to the gym, then read in my room for a while… The plan for Wednesday was pretty much the same as Tuesday. Most of the day was spent at RAC Attack. I thought we were meant to be helping people install RAC on their laptops, but I […]
