This is the first year since 2006 that I don’t present and don’t attend UKOUG Technology annual conference. Sad but I had to withdraw because I didn’t believe UKOUG has been making the right choices in the past little while. The trigger was the introduction of the limit of six presentations per company to present at the conference which I believe doesn’t really serve well the conference attendees nor my company that I’m so passionate about nor my colleagues that I’m so proud to work with.

For only $299 you can access Virtual IOUG Collaborate 13 individually or setup a conference room at your company for the whole team. There will be two tracks broadcasted so if you have demand for both tracks, it make sense to purchase two access passes and setup two tracks broadcasted in parallel in your office so that members of your team can choose individually what to attend.
Modern commercial supercomputing in the age of Datafication is what we today call Big Data. I think a better term for it would be Data Supercomputing but the industry has already spoken so Big Data it is. The architecture shifted from environments that required massively-parallel compute-intensive number crunching to massively-parallel data-volume-intensive processing.
Spring is a very active conference season for me. I might be going to half a dozen conferences in 3-4 months. That’s a lot of travel but I look forward to all them. The conference I’m probably looking forward the most this year is IOUG Collaborate.

This is just a small bug fix release of the plugin. It was actually quietly released for a while now of if you have downloaded the plugin recently, you have the latest version. To be sure — check the version in the Console or you will see it in the file name.
We have the SIG meeting at Oracle Open World Everyone is welcome. Gwen Shapira is the SIG leader and expect lots of great things in that space. The SIG is also looking for volunteers — that’s going to be hot space so if you want to engage early come and let us know.
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading the IOUG community. One of the areas the user group is pursuing all the time is finding new speakers, and it takes a lot of convincing before community members actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
