I know, I know, 2015 is not over yet 😀
But I was thinking to wrap-up now so I can continue planning 2016 😉 2016 will be sooooo exciting….

In 2015 I was re-elected as the Ambassador for EOUC (EMEA Oracle Users group Community) for the next two years. At the OOW I was jumping to the cloud in Larry’s Keynote, met Mark Hurd and was awarded with a Oracle Database Developer Choice Award in Database Design category. And in December I was listed as the 12th of 100 TOP influencers on IT in Finland (http://okimoclinic.com/2015/12/04/announcement-top-finnish-ict-influencers-in-social-media-of-the-year/, http://summa.talentum.fi/article/tv/12-2015/100-tivi-vaikuttajaa/242826#). Just to mention some of the highlights of 2015.
I want to thank everybody who has bought my book, attended my sessions, invited me to speak and especially those wonderful collegues of mine who have been travelling with me around this beautiful globe. And of course the biggest THANK YOU to Roland, Vikki, Jennifer and the whole ACE Program and OTN for supporting many of my trips. Without your support this would not have been possible.
Thank you and have a wonderful December!
