UKOUG newbie

The first week of December I'm visiting the UKOUG in Birmingham. This is my first visit, and I will not only attend sessions, but also chairing a couple and even presenting one. Luckily my presentation is on the first day (Monday 15:20), so I can enjoy the rest of the conference without being nervous...
My presentation is on the automatic transformation of Oracle Forms to Java, so if you're interested: come to the show in Birmingham (or the Pro4Pro in Amstelveen on December 11).

I've got a very interesting - and busy - schedule for this week. And apart from this schedule I will visit the Blogger Meetup on Monday. And besides attending sessions I hope I can make the time and energy to (re)contact a lot of people I met in San Francisco last year or that I know of from the net only.

I hope to meet you there!
I will post some report back on this conference, so return later on.
