Where’s Everyone Gone?

Posted in: Technical Track

Now that our new web-site is live I’d like to do the first blog post on it!

You shouldn’t be surprised if you notice that it’s difficult to locate your DBAs in the first week of December (i.e. in just two weeks from now)! And you know why? Because you need to be looking in the right place to find them.

UKOUG 2009 Conference

You are likely to know already that I’ll be going to the UKOUG Conference Technology & E-Business Suite 2009 and present few sessions. Few more people from Pythian are actually coming as well:

  • Christo Kutrovsky is coming to present with a smashing topic — “RAC + ASM: 3 years in production – Stories to share”. It’s on Wednesday at 12:50pm.
  • Paul Vallee is coming to cut some slack. Last year it’s been his first UKOUG conference and you bet he liked it so much that he couldn’t afford to miss it this year. It happens to many… Did I tell you that I didn’t miss a single one since I first came in 2006?

That’s all for now folks. Make sure you say hello to us if you are at the UKOUG. The simplest way to reach us is Twitter — @alexgorbachev, @paulvallee and @kutrovsky.

Much better ;-) I kept an eye out for it but it took a bit longer than I was expecting …

… and now I know where you got that snazzy, polished photo of yourself for the Hotsos Symposium website. Can I borrow your photographer? Or maybe your dentist?

(Will make more sense if you see the photo of me at Hotsos, but I’m not giving you a link!!)


Tell Paul to bring his leather jacket ! (he’ll know why ;-) )



@Doug: You meant the picture in Clogs of course? ;-) and I have a great dentist indeed as well as great design studio.

@Kurt: done.
