KScope13 in New Orleans, Louisiana

The annual conference by Oracle Development Tools User Group ODTUG
In 2013 it took place in New Orleans. Hot, very humid and the occasional downpour.
But in air-conditioned Sheraton once again there was a great conference with lots of high level information.
On top of that seeing old friends again and meeting the people behind well known blogs made the trip extra worthwhile.

Have a look at more KScope13 and New Orleans pictures
