New Oracle ACE Director: Me :-)

I’m very proud to announce that I am accepted as an Oracle ACE Director. Now I’m part of a special club which has only 133 members (for now) in the world. It’s surely a milestone for my carrier. I would like to thank to Gurcan Orhan, Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, Jeff Smith, Julian Dontcheff, Kamran Aghayev and […]

Oracle Midlands : Event #3 Summary

I really enjoyed Oracle Midlands Event #3 last night. Christian Antognini spoke on “12c Adaptive Query Optimization” and “Row Chaining and Row Migration Internals”. I certainly learnt a lot, which is the whole point of this stuff! After the event a few of us went across to a local pub and the geek talk continued. […]

Oracle ACE Director Self-Evaluation

I’ve just filled in my Oracle ACE Director Self-Evaluation… The way the tour dates worked this year, I got the LAOTN 2013, Nordic 2013 and Yathra 2014 tours in a single assessment year, plus all the one-off events. It looks crazy-busy… Most of my events this year have been packed into the first half of the […]

OUGN : Summary

With the exception of a 5+ hour layover in Amsterdam, the trip home was pretty straight forward. I flew to Amsterdam with Lonneke Dikmans, Ronald Luttikhuizen and Roel Hartman. During my rather excessive layover, I played catchup with all the internet stuff I missed during the trip… I must say OUGN 2014 was a pretty cool […]

OUGN : Day 2

Day 2 started really early. Having got to bed about 02:00, I was up at 05:30 and thinking about my 08:30 session. The previous evening’s conversation with Brynn was playing on my mind a little (in a good way), thinking how that conversation should/would affect my session. The session itself seemed to go well. I […]

OUGN : Day 1

The journey to Norway was pretty straight forward, but during the second flight, from Amsterdam to OSLO, my nose and eyes started to stream. I didn’t feel ill, but I was starting to worry I might be getting ill right before a conference. I landed in Norway, got the train to the centre of OSLO […]

OUG Ireland 2014

As you probably know by now I was at OUG Ireland yesterday. It was a pretty early start for me. I needed to be up by 03:30 to get a taxi to the airport, but fear of missing my flight meant I was awake from about 01:00 onward. My taxi driver wanted to talk about […]

OTN Yathra 2014 : Chennai

Yesterday’s flight from Bangalore to Chennai was very short. It felt like less than an hour to me. Hans Forbrich wasn’t coming to this event, so it looked like Debra Lilley and I would be on our own for this journey, but we bumped into Kuassi Mensah at the airport. The hotel was very nice, but doing […]
