        Abstract: Based on a customer-question: Eehh…, Could you also do this with PostgreSQL ??
        The answer was: Yes, We Can.
        The customer made the choice (was forced) to start using PostgreSQL.
        And here are a few things we discovered in the process.
        It was interesting and rewarding.
      • 19:30 – 19:45 Coffee/Tea break
      • 19:45 – 20:30  How to improve you code, your database and your life. – Speaker: Martin Widlake
      • Martin is an Oracle ACE Director and a member of the Oaktable Network. He has been working with Oracle technology since 1992, mostly as a performance and database design expert as well as a PL/SQL programmer. Martin is passionate about user groups and sharing knowledge, he presents regularly, both across the UK and internationally. He writes articles, has his own blog and is the editor of the UKOUG Oracle Scene magazine. He likes cats, beer and genetics.
        Abstract: I’ve been working with Oracle tech for 25 years and I’ve been lucky enough to be successful at it – and yet I am slow at writing code, I make lots of mistakes and I keep forgetting syntax. So how have I managed to make a living as a consultant? Not only that but I’ve been fortunate enough to become an Oracle ACE director and be a member of the Oaktable Network? How?
        I put it down to just a couple of things and this talk is about perhaps the most important – Instrumentation.
        Using PL/SQL as the example, I will cover why Instrumentation is vital, why it is often missing (or in the wrong place), the wrong way to do it and the right way to do it.
      • 20:30 – 21:00 Networking
