UKOUG 2007: The first signs
There's a couple of noteworthy things about the website. Firstly, like the main UKOUG site, it is written in ASP. Of course there are lots of Oracle applications with VB (or VB.Net) front ends to the database but it is still surprising that an Oracle user group doesn't use Oracle tools for its own website. I haven't dared ask the folks in the back office which database supports the site; I might not like the answer.
The other thing is that conference theme is Many faces, one voice. The echoes of the Borg are worrying enough but the conference banner has a distressingly Pink Floydian tinge. Obviously this year we will be putting the prog into "applications programming". I look forward to Ronan Miles treating us to some nifty lead breaks on his electric guitar. Just remember: there is no data side of the app, it's all data.
