I just got back from the amazing UKOUG Tech13 conference. This time the conference was held in Manchester which to me was a very nice experience: I have a direct flight to Manchester from Helsinki and the city is very nice (everything is just a walking distance away). At the same time with this conference there was also another amazing conference: Oaktable World UK 2013 organized by Margherita and James Morle. So we sure had a busy couple of days in Manchester…

I was attending the RAC Attack with some of my ACE and ACED colleagues. That was great fun! And the best was that I learned to jump the way Yury jumps. So not so sure about RAC but Attack is going well…

My session about Data Modeler was on Tuesday just before the big party at the Football Museum. I was very sure I will only talk to my friend Alex Nuijten (Alex is truly a loyal friend. He has heard my presentation several times and every time he remembers to tell me how good it was.), but to my surprice the room was almost full. Funny thing was that the new version of Data Modeler was releasted just about one hour before my presentation. Luckily I was talking about general things, nothing to do with a certain release. So no worries on that. Just a funny detail to mention.

The audience at the UKOUG Tech13 was just amazing! They did not even get upset on the fact that I spoke overtime and probably they were late from the party! So many good questions and such an amazing level of interaction! They really made me feel like talking again and very soon….

Too bad Christmas is coming and nobody organizes any conferences now…but then I should have time to write my blog….stay tuned…
