I’ve already done a bunch of thank you messages in the individual posts, but I just want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone involved once more.
Thanks to everyone at ORCAN, DOUG, OUGN, OTN and the Oracle ACE Program for helping to make this happen. Thanks to the other speakers for being involved and trying to help organise me. Big thanks go out to all the attendees that turned up to these events. I hope to see you all soon.
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 bull, just down to facts…”
I think that sums it up nicely.
After that I did my two sessions for this event. One on virtualisation and one on WebLogic. It was quite a strange day for me as I did two talks that had no demos and both were on areas that are not my main skill set. A mixture scary and fun rolled in to one. I literally finished my talk, put my laptop in my bag and got in a taxi for the airport, so I didn’t have any time to mingle after the sessions. I hope they went down OK. With a bit of luck I will get to do another conference in Denmark and spend more time talking to the attendees outside the sessions.
Note. The presentations rooms had bowls of sweets. Connor McDonald will know exactly what happened.
Thanks to everyone that came to my presentations in Denmark, to DOUG for inviting me and giving me loads of sweets. Thanks also to OTN and the Oracle ACE Program for helping to make this happen.
