The Afternoon after the morning ...
By Tim Dexter-Oracle on Apr 17, 2008
Well, the elements did their best to thwart me getting to Denver this morning - and OAUG, nearly. I left just after 6am to get to Denver for the 8.30 presentation knowing the roads were going to be dicey. We spend all winter here driving around on ice, a couple of nice days and driving skills go out the window. I saw a couple of shunts and somehow someone rolled their car - they looked OK. Its just over 40 miles to the conference center - I got there by the skin of my teeth. We had a room change that I did not spot - a bigger room which was good but threw me for a second. I was really pleased to see so many faces even if they were a little bleary eyed. Demos did not go so well but I think everyone got something out of it - I certainly did.
We still have such a mix of users some of you are now getting very sophisticated with your Publisher user whereas others are still just starting out - I think we need a 'beginners guide' session and a more advanced session to cater for all your skill levels.
After the presentation we retired for a marathon, hours and a half Q&A session - it was great to see so many folks wanting to hang around and ask questions - even better was the fact that I did not need to answer all the questions!
I have lots of feedback on documentation and ideas for articles on the blog. I was pleased to see folks starting to think about migration of other report types e.g. plsql and sql - if you have samples send them to me and I'll try and walk through some of them here on the blog. Got some feedback on support that I will feed back to the support folks. All in all a good morning, those of you that said you would kindly share experiences good or bad please send me details, email address here. As I wrote last night the ppt is available here and thanks for coming.
