Insync 2010 - I wasn't there.

Hello everyone

I'm starting to see a bit of feedback from the Insync Conference 2010 in Melbourne Australia.

It seems Down Under we're still working on creating the conference vibe, but I'm impressed to find a dedicated (yet thin) blog for the Melbourne leg. Here I found interviews with Connor McDonald & Tom Kyte.
I'll note that video of Connor confirms that I'm not the only one that seems to associate alcohol consumption with Oracle. I noted in the latest AUSOUG Foresight Magazine, Marc Lancaster gave a warm review of my appearance at a Brisbane branch meeting - apparently I commented how wonderful the beer & pizza concept is, or something along those lines!

Congratulations to Jeff Kemp, who took out Steven's live PL/SQL Challenge.

I was looking forward to the live challenge this Friday when Steven comes to Perth, but alas - I have a previous date with our wonderful coastal isle - Rottnest.

Next time, Kempy... next time ;-)

I do look forward to catching up with friends this year at the Perth's leg of the conference series in November, perhaps I'll see you there.

Hey! I did the right thing and hid my beer behind a table before doing the interview !

It was a good conference, and I recommend Steven's quiz and presentations - makes for some great discussion. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it on Friday (probably just as well - it'd be embarrassing if I won the competition again!).

Connor, I knew there had to be a beer somewhere - perhaps served from a king brown with a serviette around the neck?

But the phrase I got out of the video was "...perhaps after a few too many whiskeys..."

Or gin?
