Reporting from Rotorua – NZOUG 2008 Conference

 

The New Zealand Conference was a great end for my tour of conferences, was a small conference with around 200 delegates only, because this was not a big event the organization team was allow to include in the price of the event a great evening in the Luge (a fun place to drive no motorized cars and have some fun. I recommend this place if you have the opportunity to visit Rotorua, NZ) and a great buffet dinner in a very relax environment to end the evening.

My presentation was improving with some little problems when I tried to include some live demos on my presentation (only 50 min. L it’s not enough time, you can download my presentation here). But no problems, by the end I got some good feedbacks from people from Oracle and other fellow DBAs present (around 35 assistants, not bad if you have other 6 sessions running at the same time).

This also was the first time a bring with me my older son Gonzalo, he loved the experience and he is already asking me when we go out again J , the part of the conference he most loved was at the end when I won a 16GB IPod Touch J .

I want to say thank you to the NZOUG committee for the invitation and I’ll look forward to try to join this team and try to give them a hand if possible.

Here are some pictures of the event:
