Again, thanks a lot to everybody who did attend to our Lab at the OTN Tour 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and/or to Roy's talk about Data Pump in Oracle Database 12c and my presentation about News in Database Upgrades to Oracle Database 12c on August 7. It was our pleasure to meet and work together with you. And thanks to the local folks of ArOUG organizing such a great event and taking care on us.
And - on another note - the person who did accidentally take one of our 64GB thumb drives at the Hands-On-Lab may please send it back to Oracle Argentina (Juana Manso 1069 - Piso 7 -- CP C1107CBS -- Buenos Aires) - and the local folks will forward it via office mail to Roy's office. Just make sure you state that it is meant for Roy Swonger at Oracle USA in Nashua Thanks in advance

Muchas gracias to everybody who did attend our Hands-On-Lab on Monday and Roy's presentation yesterday at the OTN Tour 2013 in Montevideo. And thanks a lot to our hosts, Edelweiss, Nelson, Paolo and Daniel from the UYOUG. You were so nice, so helpful, so hospitable - it made this event and our stay a very special thing!
As usual you can download the slides from the Slides Download Center to the right (scroll down a bit, please).

I really don't look forward to a 20 hour trip in coach from Munich to Montevideo, Uruguay. But I'm looking forward to meet and see many tech folks in Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Sao Paolo during the next week. Roy and I will deliver a Hands-On-Lab in Montevideo on Monday and in Buenos Aires on Wednesday. Plus presentations on Tuesday, Thursday and finally Saturday in Sao Paolo. Well, and our colleagues in Brazil have taken the chance to schedule 3 customer visits in Rio and Sao Paolo on Friday in between After this week I will need a few days off
Then we'll move on with the ferry boat crossing the Rio Della Plata to Buenos Aires for August 7 and 8, 2013.
And finally we'll be in Sao Paolo on August 10, 2013.
So again, here's the overview:
- Montevideo, Uruguay - August 5/6, 2013
- Buenos Aires, Argentina - August 7/8, 2013
- Sao Paolo, Brazil - August 10, 2013

Now finally back from my short trip to Johannesburg, South Africa. Flying out Monday overnight, returning Friday morning after another overnight flight (all Eco). But thanks to Turkish Airlines - including the short stop-over in Istanbul was worth it as the seating comfort in Turkish's economy class is far better than Lufthansa's - as is the food and especially the entertainment system, the service ... almost everything. And luckily the Turkish Airline's employees didn't go on strike in Thursday
But after running now 6 internal Oracle Database 12c: Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate workshops in the US and in EMEA I've learned a lot from our over 180 participants doing the full Hands-On part of the workshop.
I'm really looking forward to the release date

Collaborate 2013 is almost over - we are running our final Hands-On-Lab session right now in the Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. For those seeking for the Hands-On-Lab Instructions for our session please be patient until Oracle Database 12c gets released. As soon as this happens we'll offer you the HOL Instructions plus many more information about Oracle Database 12c and the different upgrade and migration paths.
Denver apparently has become my no.3 US city - not only because the mountains are so close by. But the city itself is really worth a visit Please find some impressions below And see you next year at Collaborate 2014 on April 7-11 in Las Vegas.
Yes, again SNOW in Denver ... well ...
