Riga and OUG Harmony 2012

Pretty soon on my way to Riga to see all the places. The next OUG Harmony will be either in Helsinki or in Riga and I am going to Riga to see how it is there.

For those who do not know what the OUG Harmony is: it is the Oracle user group event organized by user groups in Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Russia. And the next one will be held May 30-31, 2012.

I am so excited to see Riga!

I can not believe this is true

The other day somebody had performance problems with his SQL. Ok, the whole clause was terrible but what made me speachless was something I didn't think I could ever see in these modern days: comparison of different data types! Where YEAR = '2011'. Can you imagine that? If I see something like that I can tell you for sure that this person has not put the smallest effort on thinking what the SQL clause should be doing. So how do you then know it's doing what it should be doing? In that case you do not even need to worry about the performance;)

OTN Tour 2011 in Latin America

I am so glad Facebook was invented. I was not able to attend the OTN Latin America tour this year but I have been following it from the Facebook. I am very sure it has been a great success so far. Francisco and others: fantastic job! So many good speakers and interesting presentations. All the organizers, you should be very proud of yourselves. Congratulations!
