BGOUG Spring 2014 : Summary

*+-I know I keep calling it the “spring” conference, but in my mind the two BGOUG conferences are always spring and autumn. This year the “spring” conference was a little late, hence my apparently strange blog titles. I was initially planning to get a taxi from Sandanski to Sofia airport. Fortunately Sve and Mimi were driving […]

BGOUG Spring 2014 – Day 2

*+-The Day 1 evening festivities consisted of lots of food, followed by a group doing a display of traditional dances. Once they had finished it was up to me to teach the Bulgarians how their local dances should really be done. Needless to say I smashed it! Day 2 started with a swim and breakfast. […]

BGOUG Spring 2014 – Day 1

*+-The morning started out with a family swim with the wife and daughter. The first session I attended was “Auditing in Oracle Database” 12c by Maja Veselica. I haven’t spent any time looking at 12c auditing yet, so this was a great introduction. I think I’m going to need to spend some time on this […]

BGOUG Spring 2014 – Day -1

*+-The flight from Birmingham Airport to Frankfurt went to plan. The landing was quite possibly the smoothest one I had ever experienced. Very impressive. I got off the plane to find my connecting flight had been moved to another terminal. I was pretty worried by this as Frankfurt is a massive airport and I already […]

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…

BGOUG Day -1

*+-I’m now in the hotel in Sofia, the day before the Bulgarian Oracle User Group (BGOUG) Spring conference. The flight from Birmingham to Dusseldorf took a little over an hour and ended with the smoothest landing I think I’ve ever experienced. Makes a change from the sort of the landings I’ve experienced recently, most of […]
