United Kingdom Oracle User Group conference 2005 Over

With a final presentation from Connor McDonald (on running Oracle at home), apparently the latest he has ever stayed on the last day of conference, the UKOUG 2005 conference and exhibition drew to a close yesterday.

I found this year's conference very useful, lots of excellent presentations. I learned a lot, from the comments I was hearing, I wasn't the only one.

One thing I've noticed over the 4 years I've been is that the exhibition part has been getting les and less useful to me as it has become more and more dominated by Applications companies. With the recent aquisitions by Oracle I cannot see it getting any better, the technologies (database &c) seem to be taking a back seat.
