Retrospective Experience 2015

Wednesday, 18 February 2015 08:09

2nd Real World Performance Tour again succesfull

Retrospective Real World Performance Tour February 11, 2015
The 2nd Real World Performance Tour, which has taken place on February 11 in the Chassé Theatre in Breda (The Netherlands), was once again a great success. 
Tom Kyte, Andrew Holdsworth and Graham Wood knew to captivate over 150 DBA's, application developers, architects etc. an entire day with their impressive and humorous simultaneous presentation. On 3 large screens the gave an interactive demo using tuning mechanism and tooling to show the opportunities for improvement of the performance of applications, Oracle database, SQL's and Java and how you can get the maximum out of them.
In short, a very practical 'training' session where both the visitors as the presenters were very excited about. Also the people who participated already last year have seen many new aspects.
We are looking forward to organize the event again next year!

OBUG Partner Appreciation Event

Prior to the “Experience Event”, to be held on March 23, 24 at the Evoluon, Eindhoven (NL) the board would like to get together with the partners for:

  2. Partner Apprecication event                      Monday March 23,2015 6:00 – 9:00 PM

Besides the mandatory look back the boards wants to discuss with the partners aboutn preserving/expending membership but mainly how to keep serving the user community. Your participation is essential.

The meaning behind the Partner Appreciaton event is to give your input and support the podium it deserves. For 2015 we have chosen a setup where the user community (members) can vote for you in three categories of “Partner of the year”:

  1. Most valuable partner to the OBUG User Community
  2. Best Advisory and Consulting partner
  3. Best Partner for Service: Application, Hosting, Cloud, etc.

As of this moment you are invited to nominate your company for one or more categories. Please state:

  • Category/categories you want to nominate your company for,
  • Explanation why and how/(user-)cases
  • A presentation, poster, banner, work of art, story telling, poetry, moodboard, painting, statue, etc.

For each category three partners will be chosen by the board. These partners will get the opportunity to present themselves at the “Partner Appreciation Event”. You may present yourself with the following means:

Limitation is a 1 cubic metre and a 10 minute timeframe. Humor and orginality are definitely encouraged.

Please send your entries and nominations before February 20, 2015 to our secretariat via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . The selected partner will be informed soon after February 20, so they prepare themselves in the most convincing way conceivable.

Whether you will nominate yourself or not we still like to meet, greet and talk to you at the Partner event. Please let us know whether you will participate at one or both events. Limitation, as usual, three per registered organisation.

The sponsorletter for the Experience event will be sent seperately and give you more insight in the main event itself including the famous ‘evening before event’ as well as how you ty participate at this event.
