AUSOUG Conference 2009 Day One
It was great to catch up with former colleagues at the conference today. As I go from site to site I’m gradually collecting more and more former colleagues and it’s great to hear how they’re going and what they’re working on.
Howard Ong gave a good review of Oracle’s new Data Modeller. Sounds like it’s got a lot of promise – but it’s very new and misses some features (e.g. support for functions, procedures with parameters, packages, and DDL change script generation) that I’d expect in an Oracle CASE tool.
I was happy to see a good level of interest in Python at my talk after lunch. If you’re here because you want to have a peek at all the slides I skipped, you can view or download it from here [Python_and_Oracle_Fast.pdf].
Unfortunately I had to leave soon after that to pick up my car from the autoelectrician, tomorrow I should be able to stay all day.
