Country facts, are that Finland has over 1.8 million saunas... that's a sauna for every 3 people. We also find ourselves in the home of the Nokia Corporation. An early morning flight heading North East from Stockholm over the Baltic Sea, took the team on the last leg of a very successf...
Home of a company that has conquered the world with classy Swedish designs and quality, that company being one of its great success stories, IKEA. Along with Meatballs (check out the Pelican, in Stockholm), ABBA, Bjorn Borg, SAAB, Volvo and the Jumbo Hostal at the airport. Our event to...
Now sit comfortably as I'm going to tell you a story, just like Copenhagen's most favorite writer son Hans Christen Anderson... Copenhagen, home of Lego (that Wikipedia tells me, comes from a Danish work that means 'Play well') and a beautiful city that sits on the Baltic sea, also hom...

Last week in Washington DC, we held our annual Sybase TechWave which was made up of 3 days, 150+ Technical Training sessions and 700 approx. attendees, that sure adds up to a great event. Precede that with a Keynote from John Chen and Raj Nathan and a Six Plenary sessions. I have atte...
Once again I thought this was one of the best TechWaves in years. Better than last year's, which was good. Having my laptop crash on me when I'm scheduled to do four sessions wasn't pleasant and took the edge off of it for me. Otherwise, it might have been a real blast. Location – I'm ...
Even the most sceptical observer would be hard pressed to argue that Sybase isn’t making some smart - or at least pretty interesting - moves right now. Bringing in the Sybase 365 division to position the company as the ‘database company with the unique focus on mobile communications’ s...
This year TechWave 2007 took place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. For those of you who didn't make it, the following is a recap of the events, with a couple of thoughts and suggestions thrown in. Officially the only thing going on Sunday was conference registration. However, there is a ...

I went to TechWave a bit early because TeamSybase was holding their reception on Saturday evening. At the reception TeamSybase initiated several new members. If you'd like to view some of the video from the super-secret initiation ceremony, go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq0VbTrjld8
I went to Vienna for the Sybase Development Tools Boot Camp in November, my first trip to Europe. Haven't seen much yet, except the duty free sections of the airports, after my 10-hour flight from Johannesburg, and a nice three-hour stopover at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. Then the t...
