ACED Nordic Tour 2012: 4 days, 4 countries
Can't believe it's almost two weeks ago. Together with Mark Rittman, Carl Dudley, Sten Vesterli, and Tanel Poder, I was invited to join in for the ACED Nordic Tour. During the Nordic Tour we visited Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Four countries in four days. I knew it was going to be a busy week, but didn't expect to be exhausted when I got back home on Saturday. On Monday I flew into Copenhagen, Denmark where I met up with Sten Vesterli and Ken Holmstykke Jensen from the Danish Oracle User Group. They were kind enough to show me around the city, Tivoli and the World Press Photo exhibit, all very enjoyable, thank you very much. Oracle User Group Norway were kind enough to welcome us in the hotel with some food and drinks. A nice welcome after having had airport food for a few days. My sessions in Oslo: "Getting Started with APEX Plugin Development" and "Who's Afraid of Analytic Functions?" they are not the first. This time we didn't have to rush to the airport, at least not all of us. Mark and Tanel were flying out that day to go home. Sten, Carl, and myself did stay an extra night in Helsinki so we could enjoy a very nice meal and some Finnish specialties (which all seem to include wodka).
