OOW2009 is over

It is Friday, the OOW 2009 is over and as almost everybody I feel that it was a good conference, but also am happy that it is over.
The event is of course perfect for networking and learning. But you have very long days and need to be careful that all the parties will not leave you drunk all the time.

I will post my sessions as soon as possible on the net - especially the Lego presentation had some good feedback and was very funny.

And I have to say that staying in a house in San Francisco (thank you Anjo) made this trip very worthwhile. Sitting in the hot tub after a long day is very very cool.

Meet a real author ;-)

While wandering around at Moscone, I bounced into Ronald Rood. Ronald and I had worked together and we had a very good time back then. Apparently without me he has too much spare time so he found the time to write a book on the Oracle Scheduler ( .

Tuesday he will be at Moscone signing his book.

Meanwhile I have bought another book - on SOA Suite 11gR1. With the current exchange rate of the dollar and an extra 20% discount this was a steal.

Hmmmm, maybe I should write a book myself and become famous.

OOW is in full swing now

Sunday 08:30 - and the fun starts!!!

It is always a tremendous feeling to be at OOW. So many colleagues and people genuinely interested in Oracle.

I'm taking my morning fix first with Alex Gorbachev on RAC Workload Management and then I will head from Moscone to the Hilton to see a session on Oracle Service Bus 11g Deep Dive.

Stay tuned for more.
