A resource for Database Professionals

UKOUG Tech13

I attended the UKOUG Tech13 conference this week, along with over 1,000 other Oracle Technical Professionals (and some less-professional too), to learn what I could about how everyone else is doing stuff with Oracle, and how it works. And to share some experiences.

I wasn’t disappointed.

As with everything these days, there was a lot of activity on Twitter about the 4 day conference, and one of the sponsors, RittmanMead, had knocked up a rather wonderful tweet visualisation (click here to see how – magical):

As you can see, there are some of the worlds best-known Oracle techies on the list of top speaker tweets, but I am as pleased as anything to have been in the top 10 most tweeted speakers at the end of the 1st day (although I suspect that’s because I knew where the pub was, rather than too much about my 1st presentation)

Get involved with the Oracle community, in whatever form. It leads to professional and personal development, real insights about what Oracle really does (rather than what the marketeers say), and some good friendships. And possibly liver disease judging by the amount of alcohol consumed by all. :-)
