I love user groups.
Getting introduced and involved in them has made a huge difference in my career. If it was not for all the people I have met in the last 22+ years, my career, and life, would have been very different.
I have met hundreds (maybe thousands) of amazing people both from within Oracle Corp and outside. Many of them became, and remain, my friends. Which is why we all love to get together several times a year at various user group and industry events to catch up, exchange wars stories, and learn new things.
If you have not registered, get to it! Rooms are going fast and you want to be sure to stay at the conference resort (yes – resort, not hotel!).
And on the ODTUG front, they have just announced you can now join for just $99 a year. That is the best value you can find for the world’s best Oracle user group for Developers.
So are you in? Are you at member of at least one user group?
What? You don’t know which one to join?
Then check out this new cool site Oracle just put up with videos from some of the user group leaders. After that, check out their new User Group Central with information about Oracle user groups around the globe.
So get out there and meet some new people and learn some new things.
Come to KScope12.
Join a user group.
See you in San Antonio.
P.S. Don’t forget to submit an abstract for Oracle OpenWorld before the deadline passes. It will get you a free pass to the show (worth over $2000). Tell’em ODTUG and the Oracle Data Warrior sent you.
