Upgrade Workshop in Sydney - Recap

Late, but hopefully not too late, a big THANK YOU to everybody who did attend the Upgrade and Migration Workshop in Sydney at the Cliftons past week. You were a really good crowd, thanks for all your questions, the great conversations in the breaks, thanks to the local marketing team for the excellent organization - and we'll looking forward to see you next time again with all your databases then live on Oracle Database 11.2 

To download the slides please find them in the Slides Download Center to your right - or use the direct link to download the workshop slide deck.

And I really don't understand how you can go to daily work (or to a workshop) with such beaches nearby ... I would immediatelly change my job profile ;-) Honestly, Sydney is really a great place. Australia and New Zealand generally are wonderful places and we've met so many great people in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Wellington, Sydney and during our travel in between. Just if there wouldn't be over 20 hours pure flight time in between Germany and Down Under ;-)

Hope to see you all again next time for 12c ;-)

Upgrade Workshop in Wellington - Recap

Wow! Wellington is really a wonderful city - except for the weather situation ;-) But it was the first time that Roy and me did arrive to a workshop with a ferry boat. We flew in on Friday to Christchurch (btw, this was the longest customs and border control I've ever went through - and I traveled to Israel by bus via Allenby Bridge from the West Bank some years ago - it took us two hours to go through immigration and customs in the night from Friday to Saturday) and drove up the Southern Island. Very nice :-) Great landscapes, great wines and great people!


I'f you'd like to download the slides please download them from the Slides Download section to your right.

And next time you'll have to ask more questions :-) Don't be this shy - Roy and me (usually) don't bite :-)

Upgrade Workshop in Melbourne - Recap

Thanks to everybody who did attend at our Upgrade and Migration Workshop in Melbourne last Friday. First of all it was a Friday so we really appreciated your patience of staying until the very end :-) And then, yes we know, it was a full room. And we'd really like to thank you :-) It was a great day for Roy and me. And you were such a great crowd with many questions and excellent discussions during the breaks. Please have all successful upgrade and migrations. And feel free to get in touch directly with Roy and me if you have additional questions or if you'd like to become a reference.

Please feel free to download the slides from the Slides Download section to your right - or simply use that link here.

Ah, and sorry that neither Mark Webber nor Sebastian Vettel did win ... next time ;-)

Thanks to all attendees in Seattle and Toronto

Seattle - APEX 2011

Must be an Oracle sponsored number plate ... ;-)

Thanks to everybody who did attend to our Upgrade Workshops in Seattle and Toronto past week. Seattle had a quite unusual track setup with two parallel breakout sessions. We hope you've enjoyed it as well. And you'll find the slides for the keynote "New Features" and the "Upgrade Workshop - The Whole Story" presentations below.

Toronto 1

Toronto was quite amazing as well - with so many (hope not too many) people in this slightly crowded room at the Interconti in Toronto. We've got a lot of interesting and sometimes challenging questions. And we would like to thank you for your patience :-)

Toronto 2

Please find all the slides here:

For me it was the first time in Canada and even though it was a very short stopover I did enjoy it very much. Roy and me had a dinner at CN Tower and besides good food some marvelous view. Didn't know before that Toronto within its city limits it's the fifth most populous city in North America. And even though paritally Air Canada ground personell was on strike I did catch my flight to Boston after the workshop ;-)

Toronto 3

Thanks again and hope to see you next time again - happy upgrades :-)
