The Great Guys of Paris

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.

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 Paris Oracle Meetup now is a reality, and I am proud of having been part of it.

Thank you @RBELHADJ, @Ycolin, @GregoryGuillou, @ParisOracle ! 🙂

  1. Thanks to you and Franck for coming. It was a real pleasiure to listen to you. An afternoon with experts like you and Franck is better than reading oracle books for days.
