Congratulations Emrah for this high achievement. We (as Turkish Oracle Community) are proud of you. You set the bar too high because of having most votes compared in all the categories, just like Steven mentioned in awards ceremony. 🙂
It was my pleasure to nominate you and seeing the result honoured me more.
I nominated for Oracle Database Developement Choice Awards from Turkey approximately five months ago. Then I learnt to be a finalist from Oracle Technology Network on 15th October. Then voting started to determine winners for each category. I finished voting at first place thanks to Turkish community supports.
Winners were announced by Oracle at San Francisco (Oracle Open World 2015, YesSQLCelebration) last week. I was to be there and I took this award from Steven Feuerstein and Andy Mendelsohn(Executive Vice President @Oracle). As I said in Awards ceremony in San Francisco, I am so honered to be a winners and I would like to express my gratitude to all communities who supports me (Especially TROUG ve TurkeyJUG). Hopefully, more awards like this come to our country and we may have the chance to show our capabilities all aorund the world.
