Today was mostly a working day for me, so I did not get to see many presentations. I did however manage to bunk off and attend my good friend and colleague Patrick Hurley’s presentation.
His talk was titled “Practical Data Pump” and a very well attended Hall 5 saw a couple of very well executed demos. I know Patrick worked really hard on this and the reaction from the crowd was pretty positive so it looked like the work paid off in spades.
Though to be fair, his jokes are still terrible.
In the evening I was at the UKOUG focus pubs to hear Julian Dyke get elected as a Director of the UKOUG. Afterwards had a really entertaining evening with the great CERN DBAs, and the exuberant (mad) RAL folks.
Three more pretty full conference days to go!
