It's a wrap! Or at least I am home. Oracle Open World usually means I come home with a very long to do list.
I flew out to San Francisco the Monday before OOW and the journey was great apart from having to wait almost an hour for the shuttle bus to the hotel. After 18 hours travelling you do just want to get to the hotel. However I love the Sofitel, they do have the most comfortable mattresses ever and after the French Onion soup I had been craving since I left Heathrow, I slept wonderfully.
I don't do jet lag, but I was up at 3am, since the boss rang me for something without remembering where I was, and I hadn't switched my phone to silent. Still 'I love my job' and I soon went back to sleep.
Technically I had four sessions although 2 were my #EOUCDBAs.
Then immediately after Lonneke and I gave our #PaaS4SaaS session which we really enjoyed. It was rather a last minute entry and we only put it together whilst at HQ the Thursday before.
The highlight of my presentations was the England Rugby & Certus story about their journey to Cloud Applications.
But as usual I have broken the story down into a number of posts to keep your attention:
- ACE Director Briefings
- England Rugby Presentation
- User Groups
- My 'Fun' Triathlon
- User Experience
- The Off Piste Fun
- My Thoughts and Those from the Analysts I follow
See you next year
