A couple of days ago I got an email from someone who had seen me speak at the Oracle Code : London event, asking if I would come and have a chat with them about Oracle, the Universe and everything. Since I was already booked off work, I said, “What about tomorrow?”, and it was arranged. 🙂
So I spent yesterday afternoon speaking with three guys who were based in Birmingham, and a couple of guys based in Ireland, who were connected over Skype.
The topics of conversation varied widely from straight tech questions to more general direction stuff. The main thing they wanted was impartial advice from someone who didn’t have an agenda. The fact I was not making any money out of this and I’ll never work for them, meant I could be an impartial Oracle fanboy. 🙂 Put me in a room and ask me Oracle questions and I’m as happy as a pig in sh*t. It was a really fun afternoon. 🙂
I’ll be doing something similar when I’m over in Bulgaria in a few weeks, so that should be fun.
