UKOUG Conference 2016 coming up fast

The weather has turned cold, the lights are twinkling in windows and Starbucks is selling pumpkin lattes. Yes, it's starting to look a lot like Christmas. But first there's the wonder-filled advent calendar that is the UKOUG Annual Conference in Birmingham, UK. So many doors to choose from!

The Conference is the premier event for Oracle users in the UK (and beyond). This year has another cracker of an agenda: check it out.

The session I'm anticipating most is Monday's double header with Bryn Llewellyn and Toon Koopelaar's A Real-World Comparison of the NoPLSQL & Thick Database Paradigms. Will they come down on the side of implementing business logic in stored procedures or won't they? It'll be tense :) But it will definitely be insightful and elegantly argued.

Oracle's bailiwick has expanded vastly over the years, and it's become increasingly hard to cover everything. Even so, it's fair to say in recent years older technologies such as Forms have been neglected in favour in favour of shinier baubles. Not this year. There's a good representation of Forms sessions this year, including a talk from Michael Ferrante, the Forms Product Manager. These sessions are all scheduled for the Wednesday, in a day targeted at database developers. If you're an Old Skool developer, especially if you're a Forms developer, and your boss will allow you only one day at the conference, then Wednesday is the day to pick.

Hope to see you there
