OTN and the ACE Program traditionally organizes a briefing for Oracle ACE Directors (ACED) just before the Oracle Open World (OOW). It is always under a very strict NDA and extremely interesting. This year it was held at the Oracle HQ on Oct 22-23.

I attended the briefing the second time. Last year I started the fan club for Thomas Kurian and the fan club is still on. He is extremely intelligent and I appreciate very much the fact he takes the time from his busy schedule to meet us just before the OOW, I am sure that is the busiest time for him. We heard a lot about different Oracle technologies from the best experts and of course we had time to talk to the other ACED as well. Great event and I cannot wait for next year!

Thank you Roland, Vikki and Jennifer for a great event! I am so happy and honored to be part of this wonderful group of Oracle experts!
