OUGF Harmony 2014, #OUGF14
I had a great time at my very first Oracle User Group event in Finland. Many great sessions and speakers, excellent food (including lovely salmon soup and reindeer burgers!), lots of good conversation and time with friends old and new.
Several highlights for me were meeting and speaking with one of the pioneers of relational theory, CJ Date, and getting to see my good friend Dan Linstedt in action talking about Big Data and Data Vault 2.0.
It was a very worthwhile trip even if it is a long way from Houston.
Thank you very much to Heli and the staff of OUGF for the warm welcome and and keeping me fed! Hopefully I can go again sometime and enjoy some more Finnish hospitality.
And now – please read Heli’s post about the conference, complete with pictures!

The OUGF Harmony 2014 has ended. Sad:( It was such a fun event. I already miss all our great speakers and attendees….
We started on Wednesday with the speakers’ dinner in a Viking restaurant Harald. There was plenty of food and plenty of drinks….and plenty of VIKINGS….
The conference officially started on Thursday morning. The busses were waiting for speakers and attendees in the centre of Helsinki to drive them to the Finnish forest. The conference venue is called Haltia in a middle of a nature park of Nuuksio.
The content of the conference was amazing! We had THE C.J. Date explaining temporal data…
And so many other excellent speakers. The audience was really listening…
The speaker of the first day was voted to be James Morle with his excellent keynote presentation. I am very sorry if you missed it:(…
