Oracle Open World and Oracle Code One conferences are around the corner. In about a month, tons of people from around the world will be in San Francisco and my twitter will explode, as every year.
On April 27th (2018) we had our first BCOUG Tech Day conference! If you are reading this and you’re part of an OUG board, you know how stressful and how much work it is to organize such an event. But the bottom line: it was very successful!
I decided to write this post for a couple of reasons: first, I usually write about conferences, and second, to give a little bit of information and stuff to think about if you plan such an event for the first time.
Next month RMOUG (Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group) will have their annual Training Days conference in Denver. In the past, being in Israel, I wasn’t exposed to most of these “local” OUG conference in North America (I mainly went to European ones) and even if I was, it was difficult for me to attend (money-wise and time-wise).
OK, so KScope17 was my first KScope, don’t be petty about it. I also know that it’s been already a month, but I’ve been doing a lot and didn’t have time to write. A week after KScope we’ve been to a family vacation in Alaska, then I went to a concert in Seattle (Counting Crows and Matchbox Twenty), then some work backlog…
I usually write about conferences quicker, but didn’t manage to find the time so I’m a week late. Last week I spoke at VODD (Vancouver Oracle Developers Day) here in downtown Vancouver. The conference was organized by Insum, a consulting company specializing in Oracle development and APEX (with a branch here in Vancouver) and was sponsored by ODTUG and BCOUG. The conference was pure technical with speakers from Insum and Oracle (and me). It was very well organize and I had a lot of fun.
