Nordic OTN Tour 2013

This year I am part of the team that is presenting at the Nordic OTN Tour 2013. It covers three countries: Sweden, Denmark and Norway and is organized by the local user groups. Tim Hall, Mike Dietrich, Sten Vesterli and me are presenting on Database and Middleware in all countries.

Sweden, October 22nd

Today we presented in Stockholm. The program can be found on their website.

It was an interesting day, both from a Middleware perspective and from a Database perspective. The user group decided to plan two parallel tracks; the sessions about Middleware in the morning and Database sessions in the afternoon. Because of this, the Middleware sessions were competing with each other and the Database sessions were competing with each other. From that perspective it would have been nicer to have a Middleware track and a Database track running in parallel. The advantage of the Orcan approach however, is that Database people will attend the Middleware sessions that they might otherwise have skipped.

Denmark, October 23rd

The programs are not exactly the same in all three countries. In Denmark there are three parallel tracks, and instead of talking about using Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g to realize a SOA, I will talk about Oracle BPM Suite. The program can be found on the website of the Danish user group. Apart from the people that were at the Swedish day, there are a number of other speakers in Copenhagen:

  • Rasmus Knappe
  • Jørgen Christian Olsen
  • Gordon Flemming
  • Lars Bo Vanting 

Norway, October 24th

The last day is in Oslo. In Norway there are two parallel tracks, like in Sweden. I will do the same presentations: Overview of Oracle SOA Suite 11g and Creating SOA with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.

The same team is doing the presentations. In addition there are a few Norwegian speakers as well:

  • Trond Brenna
  • Harald Eri and Bjørn Dag Johansen
The agenda is published here

All in all a very interesting tour, I look forward to meeting the different user groups and spend time with the other ACE Director and talk about Oracle stuff all day ;)
