Let The Games Begin! – #Kscope14

images-jackjohnsonmusic-com-oniricfs-us-uploads-communitygroups-Nature_Consortium_2-160x229We kicked off KScope 14 with a great Community Service event with the Nature Consortium.  If you saw my tweet earlier, we HANDLED that Himalayan Blackberry.  I’ve got some of that stuff or a very close relative growing in my back yard, so I felt really good pulling that stuff out.  Not to be beat or other nemesis was the Stinging Nettle.  If you touch it, you get the sensation of a bunch of little pin pricks for about 20 minutes.  Doesn’t hurt insomuch as it’s irritating.  After a couple of hours of manual labor, we had lunch and headed back to the hotel. Gather yourselves, because the next few days is what it’s all about.  Kscope14, the best technical conference there is for the Oracle community.  Things really get started at 6:45am with Kent Graziano leading us in Chi Gung.  I’ll be there, and you should too.  So meet us in the lobby of the Convention Center.  Have a good breakfast, go register, eat lunch, hang out for a bit, then hit the Welcome Reception from 6pm – 8pm, then finish of the night a Kscope tradition: WereWolf.  Call it a night after that or keep the party going, but remember …. Monday you need to be up and ready for Chi Gung.  Yep it’s every morning at 6:45.
