Video by @OracleDBDev during #OOW15

Laura Ramsey (known as @OracleDBDev on Twitter), recorded me a session about how it feels to be a DEVVY (#ODevChoice) judge.

To be honest, it is really hard to be a judge. You need to check every detail, you need to be very careful when you are voting for the finalists. Also, it is so great to see the outcome.

It is an honour to be the nominator of Emrah Mete (his LinkedIn and Twitter accounts), who is one of the DEVVY winner in SQL category. And he had the most votes of all the categories and clear the leader in SQL category. Thanks to all community members of TROUG and everybody who voted.

Another @oracleopenworld is approacing

Time is running fast and we’re so close to depart to San Francisco for another Oracle Open World 2015. I am attending to this – biggest in globe – conference since 2010 consecutively and proud for having the “speaker ribbon” 6th times in a row (never missed an Open World, how lucky I am).

Special and biggest thanks to Oracle ACE Program for all the support and information. My (actually all the Oracle ACE Directors’) travel itinerary including from/to airport to hotel, where to stay, what to do, etc. are all arranged prior to event.

Once again I am proud of being an ACE Director and continue to give all my support to community.

If you’re in town and want to meet me, buzz me from Twitter, LinkedIn or Here (Blog) and let’s have some beers.
