Appearances and Meetings

Below are the user groups, conferences and any other public occurances that I will be at and whether I am presenting or not. If you see me, come over and say “hi”, it’s always better to chat face to face.

5th-7th December 2011

International Conference Centre, Birmingham (where else?!)
The usual three days of meeting friends, going to talks, drinking in pubs, going to more talks and having a great time.

Just going as a delegate to this one, very interested to see CERN talk about testing and validating backups and the talk on rolling forward very large physical databases.

30th November-2nd December 2009
The UKOUG Technology and E-Business suite conference
International Conference Centre, Birmingham (where else?!)
The Annual UKOUG technology conference, the best Oracle meeting going. Back to 3 days, back to concentrating on technology.
All my talks were rejected, but I’ll still be there – it will be nice to just enjoy the event and not worry about preparing talks {who do I think I am kidding?}

1st October 2009
Management and Infrastructure SIG, UKOUG
Oracle City Office, London
I chair the MI Special Interest Group
I’m giving the presenting a rest this time, the delegates get so see and hear enough from me already!

7-8th September 2009
Oracle Life Science User Group Conference 2009 CANCELLED
{Sadly, cancelled due to low numbers. I was REALLY looking forward to this one too}
Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge
This is the annual conference of the International Oracle Life Science User Group and I have been asked to present but the actual topic is not decided yet. I used to be one of the directors of the user group, and worked as the Sanger, so it will be great to meet up with some old friends.

16th June 2009
RAC and High Availability SIG
One Great George Street, London
I’m just along as a delegate for this one.

3rd June 2009

I chair the MI Special Interest Group
I will also be presenting on “Being an I.T Manager”

20th May 2009
UNIX SIG, UKOUG
Wolverhampton Science Park
I will be presenting on “Tuning for non-experts”. It is an introductory presentation, aimed and DBAs and Developers who have little experience in tuning and might find the more advanced stuff currently looks more like vooodoo magic than logic.

28th April 2009
Northern Server Technology day, UKOUG
Park Inn hotel, York
A two-stream event of technical talks and one by me on “IT Disasters, your Route to a Brighter Future”.
My talk is an attempt at humour in respect of disasters I have been around and what I learnt.

“All my talks were rejected, but I’ll still be there ”

Just for curiosity what were they about ?

It would be nice to watch you presentations which I have never had chance to.

I will be there on Wednesday only because of recession :) I hope I would catch you any of Tanel Poder sessions, I plan to attend all of them and as a last one I need to choose one of the last two between Wolfgang Breitling or Husnu Sensoys
