New Version of Slide Deck available:
Upgrade/Migrate/Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c

Finally ... we refreshed our entire Upgrade, Migrate & Consolidate to Oracle Database 12c slide deck. And hey, it has not even 460 slides right now ;-) We changed a lot - not only the format to 16x9 but also a lot of the content. It's not entirely 12c - so everybody interested still in Oracle Database 11.2 will find a lot of useful information in it.

PS: Roy and I are both "shocked" in a very positive way. As of Jan 16 we've had over 12,000 downloads in 6 months of our 12c slide deck. Just for comparison: in exactly the past 12 months we've had less than 8000 downloads of our 11.2 presentation ... wow!!!

Workshops 2013 - Recap and Map

2013 wasn't a quiet year. But due to the slip of Oracle Database 12c we've had way less workshops than in the years before. But less workshops doesn't mean less work. It just means different tasks such as more development work, refreshing our entire slide deck (will be uploaded tonight in a fresh new version), learning about new stuff such as Oracle Multitenant, attending at the OTN ACE Tour in Scandinavia, South and Mid America.

In tradition we'll publish a map with markers in countries Roy and I had been in the past year. You can access it in FULL SIZE (or click on the map below) or just look at the tiny picture below.

And you may compare it to 2012 and 2011.

My statistics on flying are still showing penty of "air" time - as you may or may not know more or less almost everything in Coach/Economy/Cattle class :-(

I like especially this stat here - in my peak year 2011 I had over 450 hours in the air. Last year it were just 217 hours (i.e.almost a forth of the time a crew member spends up in the air - time on the runway and to/from the airport is not included here) but a crew member's job is to work for the airline - and I work in addition to all that travel ;-)

Finally the last one here - flown around the globe almost 4x.

 CU you somewhere in 2014 - it will just start on Saturday ...
