I'm back in business after being out for almost two weeks. And tonight I will fly out to Oslo in Norway to participate in the OUGN Spring Conference 2014. It's my first user group conference in Norway and it will be very special as it will happen on a ship. No escape
And Lufthansa's pilots did a great job in making my travel another nice Lufthansa surprise package. Due to the upcoming 3 day strike my flight to Oslo got canceled last night at 18:25h - as if Lufthansa wouldn't know about the strike days before (it got announced last week). But I could rearrange my travel and now I'll fly out a day earlier. I still feel very sorry for all the families and travelers getting stuck somewhere close to the Easter holidays. All LH Hotlines ("cold"line or "dead"line would fit better) where broken yesterday. Even the Senator "hot"line was out of order. As if my favorite airline wouldn't have known upfront that people WILL HAVE TO CALL when they cancel 3800 flights.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to this great event in Norway. Preparing myself right now with some great tunes of two of my all time favorite Jazz musicians from Norway, Jan Garbarek (saw him playing live several times) and Ketil Bjørnstad.
My presentation will be:
- Hitchhiker's Guide to Oracle Database Upgrades
on Thursday, April 3 at 6pm in Auditorium 1 (Color Magic)
- What's New for Oracle Data Pump in Oracle Database 12c
on Friday, April 4 at 11:30am in Parliament
