UKOUG – Pictures and some not so nice stuff…
Thanks to Daniel Fink I was able to upload some pictures now. Have a look at my written posts.

To be honest, this these practices, can make me very emotional. A lot of sweat and tears go into making a proper presentation; regarding testing, checking and testing and trying to do the best you can, and sometimes it is even in "borrowed" family time (which counts double), besides the employers time.
