SiOUG – The Slovenian Conference

So October came around and it was time for my second and third conferences of the autumn season.  I had been kindly select to do 2 talks at this Slovenian User Group, but a last-minute problem with another speaker meant I found myself giving 3 talks in 2 days. Excellent fun!IMG_1728

 

I arrived in lovely Portoroz just as the sun was setting, with what seemed like most of Slovenia leaving the coast on the final hot Sunday of the year, just in time for a huge and wonderful dinner with all of the other speakers.

Day 1 was a whirlwind of talks, food and presenting  much of what I know about Histograms and Chocolate, washed down with a local craft ale – Thank You HumanFish Brewery! Yum!

A party at the end of day 1, with a generous consumption of wine and Craft Ale – all consumed with the lovely friendly and fun Slovenians at the conference – y’all know who you are! – meant that Day 2 held some trepidation…. would I wake up in time!

Day 2 saw me giving 2 more talks, about Optimizer Plan Stability, and also about DataGuard, in front of an interested and good sized audience before hopping into my car and driving down to Croatia to give 2 talks in a somewhat more leisurely 3 days. Tomorrow is a day off! Holiday!

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.
