Indy: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Late this week I came back from Alliance 2013, an annual user-driven conference of Oracle application users from all over the world who gathered in Indianapolis, IN this year. There were educational sessions/workshops presented by users, Oracle strategists and developers, and vendors with information about their products. 

I was in Indy from last Saturday until late Wednesday. I have to admit that it is nice to stay home this weekend for once and not have to be out of town again this weekend.  I miss my time with John and our cats Havi and Elgy (she is sitting on my lap as I am typing this).  I wanted to tell you about my trip when I decided to start this post...but all I really have to say is that it was a nice trip, I learned a lot, and it was great spending time with colleagues I haven't seen in a while as well as the ones I work with on a day-to-day basis.  The midwest is a different place, nice to visit, but I am glad to be back home. You know what they say about no place like home--wherever 'home' may be.

An Oracle person! Are you a techie then? Must be to go to one of those. Congratulations!

Thanks Joe. I guess I would be a techie (if I should be so honored though I don't feel deserving to be called that). I'm a business analyst for Oracle Peoplesoft Campus Solutions and I do work on the technical side.
