Oracle Tech Conferences

It’s mid-November 2019. The leaves have mostly fallen and the nights are drawing in. That can only mean… it’s time for Europes 2 biggest Independent Oracle User Groups to have their conferences.

The first, starting Tuesday 18th November, is DOAG – the German Oracle User Group – in Nuremberg.nuremberg I’m flying out there a couple of days beforehand as I have meetings, and it’s nice to travel and chill out too. This year I’m speaking about Oracle Database Statistics at both conferences, but I only have time for the “basics” talk at DOAG so I’ll try to get some Unconference time to talk about when it gets harder.

Then, from the 1st to the 4th December, it’s the UKOUG Techfest 2019. This is slightly different this year as we have split the main conference, comprising Tech, Business Apps and JDE into 3 separate components at different times of the year. The Tech-only conference has stayed in the December slot (with Business Apps moving to June).

We have also moved the conference to Brighton. New location, Great town.

I’ll be talking about  Oracle Database Statistics, but this time in 2 slots, Database Stats #1. Doing it Right, the Easy Way (Monday 2nd December 09:00), then in a bit more depth I’ll do Database Stats #2. Doing it Right, When it’s Harder (Wednesday 4th December 11:00)

For a UKOUG “conference survival guide”, I recommendbrighton-autumn UKOUG Techfest Survival Guide 2019. All you need to know about getting the most out of 3.5 days of Tech shenanigans. Turn up, learn, but also try to meet people and have fun! I hope to see you at one of both of these conferences, maybe have a coffee or somethings stronger – easy on the stalking though (read Martins Survival Guide first)

If you have not registered for Techfest 2019, you can do that here: UKOUG TechFest 2019!

There a full agenda of around 250 Oracle-related Tech talks. The problem isn’t trying to work out if there’s enough to see, but trying to work out how to prioritise all of them!

See you there!

I’ve not written a post in a while. I’ve been a bit busy organizing several UKOUG events, including several Special Interest Groups 1-day events and Tech17 (and doing paid work for clients!)

I have been accepted to speak at a number of conferences over the next couple of months so I though I would share that with you and hope you’ll be there to learn, share, network and enjoy the conferences.
