    Hey I really enjoyed it and it's inspired me to get more training, I like the attitude discussion that Francesco raised and i think we can add a lot more to this afterall don't most DBAs have strong opinions :-). I enjoyed Stu's cloud discussion but like many DBAs and clients I'm not convinced this is good for everyone.

    I'm looking forward to the next one.

      Like i said, time will tell me friend! RAC was never going to take off, AWS are growing massively and most importantly I have my friend Larry backing me up! :-)

    Hi all, Thanks for coming it was great to see you all. I think it was a very successful evening. Thanks again to Stuart and Francisco for speaking and to E-IT for sponsoring.
    Remember the NZOUG conference coming up. Be nice to see you all there. Keep bugging your DBA friends and collegues about our meetup and ask them to sign up and come along. This is your part!

    We would like volunteers to speak at next meetings. Just let me know if you have an idea and I can help you explore this. It can be as little as a 5 minute talk/presentation. This meetup is a great learning platform to get comfortable speaking at larger conferences. Use the opportunity.

    If there is any company that would like to sponsor the next meetup please let Kelly know. Regards, Arjen

    Stuart's ideas on cloud computing and where Enterprise IT believe the NZ market will go were very interesting as was Francisco's preview of Oracle 12c.

    Great opportunity to network. I enjoyed the open discussion forum regarding Cloud. Speakers went maybe a bit too long and didn't really leave enough time for networking afterwards. Having said that there was a good amount of time to do so before they started.
