UKOUG Call for papers...

The UKOUG call for papers has been announced.  This is an event I've personally attended every year now since 2003.  I've met and made some very good friends at this conference.  I strongly recommend it as a technical forum.  It is a large but not overwhelming large event - with lots of technical content (and a bit of fun as well).

I've written in the past about participating in the user community - this is the perfect chance.  Everyone has something useful to contribute - everyone does. 

So, get on the OTHER SIDE of the podium.  Yes, it can be scary, but it is definitely worth the fear factor long term.

Yes and Yes.

I'll be there Sunday through Tuesday and then off to Paris for a two day seminar on Wednesday and Thursday...

This is sooo funny.

I'll be speaking at the Israel Oracle User Group, see this link for details.

And the link is all in Hebrew.

Ok, well, I thought it was funny.

Anyway, I hope you're leaving a few days for sightseeing. It's an amazing place. Make sure to get to Jerusalem. I was going to spend a few days there and instead spent 10 days of 14 there. Walk the via Dolorosa with the Monks on Friday. Even if you're not religious, that event has defined a lot of the last 2000 years.

Please tell me that the 'Opening Session' doesn't start at 7:45am. That just about killed me on the first day of Collaborate08!

Is the UKOUG fairly unique with it's open approach? Is there anything like it in the US?

The IOUG event which just happening in Denver CO this month is similar to the UKOUG - a little larger perhaps.

Hi Tom,

I agree. It was a challenging but amazing experience for me to speak and present at OpenWorld for the first time this year and wonderful opportunity to share knowledge with the Oracle community. I enjoyed meeting you this year at the conference. Watching your presentation "Change, Change, Change" was fantastic way for me to learn how to polish my speaking and presentation skills from an Oracle master like yourself.
