Northern Server Technology Day – Advert April 22, 2010

I’m a bit late doing this, but next week is the UKOUG Northern Server Technology Day.
As the title suggests, this is a day of technical presentations for Oracle users in the North of England. Of course, it is open to any UKOUG member (and anyone else, for a small fee), but the idea behind it is to provide a user group event for those who are not based in the South of England and so might struggle to the usual events. This year the day is being held in Leeds, which is where I was at college, so I am more than happy to return to my old stomping ground and support the day with a presentation on Database Statistics.

There are other, probably much better, presentations by David Kurtz, John Hallas, John Scott, Piet de Visser and David Phizacklea too. I’ve seen them all do their stuff before and it should be a cracking day. Check out the agenda via the link at the top of this post.

If you are an Oracle user who is based up in the North and have an interest in the meeting, I would urge you to make the extra effort to attend. It is a constant complaint that the UKOUG is biased towards having events in Reading, London and the Midlands and not a lot elsewhere, but to have events further afield there needs to be an active and interested audience to justify the event. The better the event is supported, the more likely it is to continue and prosper and potentially attract other UKOUG SIG meetings North.

Actually, on that note, I will also mention the Scotland 2010 conference meeting, a must for Oracle users in Scotland or those who would like to mix a technical conference with visiting Scotland {and I have to say, I do enjoy visiting Scotland}. Not sure yet if I can get there myself this year :-(

Hi Martin – thanks for the advert for this year’s NST and thanks for once again being a presenter at this event!

It will indeed be ‘a cracking day’, I’m looking forward to another great day.

We also cannot emphasise enough the need for support for these events, and on that note may I refer to my recent blog post wher we are looking for volunteers to form the Northern Server Tech SIG :)
