OTN Tour 2016 Latam Stop in Montevideo
Next stop of the OTN tour after Brazil was Montevideo. We had a perfect start since Nelson from the Oracle User Group in Uruguay picked us up at the airport, we quickly dropped our luggage at the perfect Radisson hotel, had a perfect late lunch at the Mercado Central, with (you can guess it) perfect Tannat red wine, delicious meat and good company of fellow speakers. If Uruguay had been at the end of our trip and not only the second stop I would have bought some bottles of that wine.
The famous shot I always wanted to take myself after seeing it on the cover of some guide book:
The event was very professionally organized and running in two auditories at the same time. I was doing my OSB and the FUD about Microservices presentation for the first time and also presented about Docker containers (including a live demo) and had a lot of fun!
Finally I had a copy of my Cloud Computing and Middleware book to give away.
After Montevideo almost the whole ACE team took the night ferry to Buenos Aires.
Here are some more pics I took during our stay in Montevideo.
The day after the conference I boarded a hop-on hop-off to see a bit of Montevideo and finally had a beautiful walk back from the beach to the city center.
