Appearances 2017

and wp

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.

UKOUG Tech 16

tech16_rd_gen_v1

It is the UKOUG Tech16 (and App16 & JDE 16) conference in a short few days.

As well as giving 2 presentations myself, the first about Disaster Recovery, Far Sync and Fast Start Failover and the second about “RAC for beginners”, I will also be arguing in the DBA v Dev round table at the end of Monday about what I would like to do with most Developers and the best way for me to achieve it without negative consequences.

Martin Widlake and I will be MC-ing the Optimizer round table, with a panel of experts consisting of Jonathan Lewis, Maria Colgan, Nigel Bayliss and Chris Antognini answering your questions (send questions in advance to Tech16@jlcomp.demon.co.uk ), talk to me on the day, or stick your hand in the air in the session.

If that panel doesn’t get you to persuade your management that you need to be at this conference, perhaps the rest of the speakers at the conference will.

We at the UKOUG work long and hard to persuade the best speaker in the world to turn up and talk to us. For Tech 16, I have managed to gather

  • Jonathan Lewis
  • Maria Colgan
  • Connor McDonald
  • Graham Wood
  • James Morle
  • Martin Bach
  • Pete Finigan
  • Chris Antognini
  • Kamil Stawiarski
  • Dom Giles
  • Lothar Flatz
  • Mike Dietrich
  • Uwe Hesse
  • Tim Hall
  • Ludo Caldara
  • Frits Hoogland
  • Martin Widlake
  • 60 ACEs! 60! In Tech alone….. so many awesome guys and girls to teach us stuff. My only sadness is that, in EVERY talk slot there is more than 2 talk that I want to see (yep – at least 3 per hour) and I can’t see them all 😦
