When I started my contribution to the Oracle community, I was doing it for two reasons. The noble: Give back to the community what I have learnt from it. The narcissist: Try to be as good as my favourite bloggers and get fame and prestige.
What I was not expecting, is that now I am getting more from the community than what I was getting before starting my contribution. Not only at a technical level, but also in terms of friends, travels, network.
Earlier this summer, I have been invited, along with Franck Pachot, to present at the Paris Oracle Meetup. We have been there last Friday (4 Sept 2015), and it has been mind blowing.

Les vacances ne sont pas finis, mais un nouveau meetup est déjà prévu pour cette rentrée.Nous aurons le plaisir d’accueillir une délégation suisse:) Franck Pachot (Oracle ACE et certifié OCM 11g, OCP 12c, Performance Tuning Expert, Exadata Implementation) de la société dbi-services blog de Franckansi que Ludovico Caldara (Oracle ACE,member of th…
I’m excited about it because this meetup started only a couple of years ago, and it has already had speakers like Jonathan Lewis and Tom Kyte. But what surprises more, is the meetup has a near-zero budget.
The legend says that Gregory Gouillou and other french guys met Christian Antognini at the Open World (or was it UKOUG Tech?), discussed about the lack of active OUGs in France and then Chris said: “If you want it, make it happen”.
The Paris Oracle Meetup now is a reality, and I am proud of having been part of it.
Did I say in some of my previous posts that I love RAC Attack? I love it more during Collaborate conference, because doing it as a pre-conference workshop is just the right way the get people involved and go straight to the goal: learning while having fun together.
We had way less people than expected but it still has been a great success!
The t-shirts have been great for coloring the room: as soon as people finished the installation of the first Linux VM, they’ve got one t-shirt.
Look at the room at the beginning of the workshop:
after a few hours, the room looked better! New ninjas, red stack, happy participants 🙂
We had a very special guest today. Mr. RAC PM in person has tried and validated our installation instructions 😉
We got pizza again, but because of restrictions at the convention center, it has been a beer-free afternoon 🙁
Thank you anyway to the OTN for sponsoring almost everything!!
Looking forward to organize the next RAC Attack, Thank you guys!! 🙂
