Up to now both Birmingham and Ukoug conference were very satisfactory, I enjoyed the first three days very much. After a 30-45 minutes random walk we found at the end of the New Street the St Martin’s Church, a beautiful scene since it is Christmas time, and two books stores near the Church which I will be mining tonight after Ukoug ends. Also as they told me, “Once pubed, never stopped”, this is a reality in fact, and can easily ruin the conference :)

Swingbench, When you need a load by Dominic Giles After this presentation since I am a PL/SQL dinasour :) I thought this can be done easily within Oracle, why not an open source project based on DBMS_SCHEDULER and APEX technology for inputs of load and reports. Hüsnü has already a loading Oracle series, and maybe there is already some.

After surviving 10 sessions on my third day today it will be a child play I guess :) But because of the long way waiting back to home I plan to post the last day’s notes on this Sunday.
