Pythian at UKOUG Technology and E-Business Suite Conference 2010

Who from Pythian are at the UKOUG conference this year? In additional to myself, it’s Christo Kutrovsky, Daniel Fink, Paul Vallee and Andrew Poodle. Christo, Dan and myself are presenting, Andrew is helping organization of MySQL track as a MySQL SIG Chair and Paul… well, I’d say Paul is a slacker so he is covering the beer tap to pay up! :) It’s close to 2am – gotta get some sleep before tomorrow.

Live @ SQL PASS Day 1

I’m here at the PASS Community Summit 2010 in Seattle, WA. This happens to be the largest SQL Server conference in the world with regards to content, attendees and Microsoft participation. There have been several announcements made in today’s keynote, few of which were just waiting to be blogged about from the insiders since earlier this year. First of which is the release of SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse.

I’m happy to announce the winners of this year’s t-shirt and creative blogger’s contest at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 Annual Bloggers Meetup. Asif Momen, of the Momen Blog was the big winner of the HP X310 DataVault. Although there wasn’t as much participation as I had hoped for the creative blog post contest we have not one, but two AppleTV winners to announce; Sunil S. Ranka for his post: Mapping the Maze, Online Bloggers to Real World Faces: Pythian Blogger Meetup at OOW10 and Mr. Chet Justice, Oraclenerd for his entertaining, 5 part series from the meetup. Definitely an “A” for effort – could you tell he really wanted the AppleTV?
