A quick thank you…

Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone involved in making the 2-day PL/SQL workshop in Utrecht happen last week. Thanks to Miracle Benelux for staging the event, to Anjo for inviting me and to Annette for organizing everything, including Anjo. Of course the biggest thanks go to everyone who came to the […]

Slovakia Day 2

I’m not nervous about flying, but I am nervous about being late for flights, so day 2 was a complex day for me. The plan was to teach from 9:00-17:00 then go straight to the airport and leave. Having the deadline for the airport in the back of my mind all day meant I was […]

Slovakia Day 1…

That’s day 1 over as far as teaching is concerned. The audience is quite a diverse mix. Everything from 6 months to 10+ years of Oracle experience and from variety of countries too. I’ve even got a member of Oracle staff in the group. I wonder if he’s a spy… It’s always dangerous to start […]

Slovakia Day -1

I got to Slovakia with no major trauma.  I also had enough time to have a quick look round. There are some photos here if you are interested. As always, I used the shotgun approach. Several shots of each scene in the hope something would come out looking OK. Not sure if I’ll have time […]

You know you’ve travelled too much when…

You know you’ve travelled too much when… You are asleep in the bath while your taxi is waiting outside to take you to the airport. At the check in desk you can’t remember where you are going. You can’t find your flight on the departure board because you’ve forgotten it’s a connecting flight. The computer […]

Estonia Day 2 Update…

I’ve just finished the second day of teaching in Estonia… I didn’t have any database issues today, which was a relief. Everything went according to plan, but it was a struggle to get all the information across in the time. I think I’ve got more than 13 hours of material and only 12 hours to […]

Estonia Day 1 Update…

I’ve just completed day 1 of my PL/SQL workshop in Estonia. The first few minutes proved especially eventful! When I did my workshop in Copenhagen, I had a lot of trouble with the projector. This morning I plugged the projector into my laptop and all was well. I even made a joke about how well […]

PL/SQL Seminar in Estonia…

I’ll be in Estonia on the 3rd & 4th of June doing a PL/SQL seminar. I’m guessing the details will be available here in the next day or two. Cheers Tim… PS. If I get any more dates I’m printing a “World Tour” T shirt.

Copenhagen (again)…

I mentioned in a previous post I had a days sightseeing before I started my workshop. Copenhagen is a really cool place. I would definitely like to visit again. Regarding the workshop, I think it went really well. The people were very friendly and interacted a lot. It’s hard work presenting for 12+ hours, but […]

Copenhagen…

I’ve got a single day to do Copenhagen before I have to start working tomorrow. The local tourist office recommended a 3 hour route round the city, which I did this morning. I’m going to spend this afternoon checking out some of the stuff off the main route. So far the weather has been bright, […]
