AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is Over

The second, and the last, day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is over. I had a quick chance to peak into Steve Lemme’s presentation on CA approach for solving an IT management dilemma. Instead of keynote and the following presentation, I paid a visit to exhibitors and spoke to practically every exhibitor.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne — the Start of Day Two

Regardless of my unfortunate early wake up, the day started great. I spent a couple hours reviewing and tightening up my block change tracking presentation.

How an Oracle DBA Works in Sydney

I’m going to present couple sessions at the Australian Oracle User Group Conference in Melbourne next week. It’s the first time I’m presenting Down Under and I’m looking forward to it, although I’m still not sure if I should start from the last slide and proceed backward. It seems like I will never finish this blog post so I will be brief now and simply hint you what you can find in the next one. Nuno Souto, aka Noons, was very kind to invite me to his place for a dinner, and I can tell you it was fantastic evening. But this is a topic for the next photo-blog. Stay tuned!
