I did three talks for the tasmanian user group. Its a small user group, but a credit to the committee that they keep it strong, and keep it going year after year. It was a pleasure to go there.
And if you’re reading this, I hope
a) you’re a member of your local user group
b) you attend and support any events that your local user group has
c) you will (perhaps one day in future) speak at your local user group.
User groups MAKE the Oracle community. We share, we learn, we strive to make our solutions better for our customers. I’m lucky enough to really enjoy getting up in front of an audience and talking about the Oracle things I’m passionate about. I know for others – getting up in front of a crowd sounds like being tortured slowly.
But invest in your user group, and it will pay your back two fold.
