Beijing, Seoul - and OTN Tour Tokyo - just in one week

Uhhh ... next week will be a tough traveling experience. 19870 km (12347 mi), all in cattle class on 4 different airlines.

Picture rights remain at The New York Times

I tried to avoid Lufthansa as they canceled recently flights I heavily relied on - with no reason! And there's still a huge risk of announcing just their 9th strike within a year and a bit.

But I'm really looking forward to the workshops, to see all the colleagues, customers and of course some great friends. Roy and I will do two internal two-day workshops in Beijing and Seoul with each more than 50 participants - and we'll include a nice hands-on-experience as well. And mid-week I'll head out to Tokyo to present at the DB TECH SHOWCASE 2014 - which is part of the OTN ACE Tour.

CU soon - thanks!!!

Nordics OTN ACE Tour 2013 - Recap

The Nordics OTN ACE Tour 2013 with stops in Stockholm, Ballerup/Copenhagen and Oslo is over. A very intense week with plenty of excellent presentations from Lonneke Dikmans, Sten Vesterli, Tim Hall and others. I'm always impressed how much those people know and how good they present. It's such a great learning experience. And there's always some time to talk about weired things apart from the Oracle cosmos. So thanks a lot, folks - it was a pleasure to travel with you.

And many many thanks also to the people from ORCAN, DOUG and OUGN. Everything worked out so well. And thanks for the great gifts. the dinners, everything!!!

Of course a special thanks to all the people who went to my presentations. Hope you've enjoyed it - and sorry for any overtiming ;-) But as Tim said yesterday in the Shuttle Bus back to the airport: "45 min slots don't work out at all" :-) The final slide set about "Different Ways to Upgrade, Migrate and Consolidate into Oracle Database 12c including Oracle Multitenant, New Features and other stuff" can be downloaded via this link.

Hope to see you all again soon - and let me know once you have successfully upgraded to Oracle Database 12c or in case you'd like to become one of our Upgrade Reference Customers.

Cheers - Mike

PS: One thing I couldn't really understand - why is that thing below not labeled simply GRAPE JUICE??? And who's honestly drinking that?
