Just some impressions from our week in Tokyo, Japan in January 2015.
Uhhh ... next week will be a tough traveling experience. 19870 km (12347 mi), all in cattle class on 4 different airlines.
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!!!
Thanks again to our colleagues of Oracle Japan for the (as always) excellent organization of our journey to Japan in December 2011. And thanks to all the customers and colleagues we've met and which did visit the workshops We'll hope to meet you next time again!
