Oracle ACE Program #JoelKallmanDay

2 years ago, I wrote my latest blog post. These last 2 years have been hectic and challenging for me. But I recently felt the need to go back to blogging, as much as my current lifestyle will allow it. And what better occasion than the #JoelKallmanDay for this.

What a great loss: Joel Kallman was an exceptional contributor and an excellent guide among the Oracle community.

And talking about community, today I am thankful for the Oracle ACE Program, and the hard-working people who have been keeping this community going for years.

I entered the program in 2018 and it brought me more than I could ever imagine: I met incredible people from all over the world, I went out of my comfort zone thanks to supportive mentors, I learned and also shared, I had rich networking opportunities, I always was in good company during lockdowns, and my career took a fantastic and unexpected turn. Today, I’m not part of the Oracle ACE Program anymore … and I somehow owe it to the program: I recently joined Oracle. 4 years ago, I would never have imagined it could be possible.

I will for sure keep on supporting the Oracle ACE Program in all ways possible.
