I should be packing right now. But as much as I love travelling, I yet have to grow fond of packing. So instead I am updating my blog which I have neglected a bit over the past months. But excuses are plenty and I have been quite busy and it won’t get any better anytime soon. But this is a good kind of busy since I get to present at a bunch of events and meet a lot of good friends around the world. I was lucky enough to be accepted on the OTN APAC tour again. Last year, I was “only” able to attend two stops in New Zealand and Australia but this year I will manage to visit China (twice) and Japan in addition to Australia. The trip starts this week with a client visit after which I will fly straight to Singapore for a long weekend to meet up with Doug Burns. After that these will be the tour stops:
- AUSOUG 2014 Western Australia Conference, Perth on November 6th and 7th
- OTN China tour, Shanghai on November 9th
- db tech showcase, Tokyo, November 11th to 13th
- OTN China tour, Beijing, November 14th-15th
After Beijing, I am leaving directly to Nuremberg for the annual DOAG conference and one more customer meeting the day after before finally heading home for a weekend. But that will not be the last trip of the year, the Oracle Midlands user group is having a “german night” with two of my talks and a stroll over the German christmas market in Birmingham on November 25th. And then finally the last event of the year will be the UKOUG tech14 conference in Liverpool from December 8th to 10th where I will get to co-present with Philippe Fierens.
