... an Oracle ACE!

The thrills. The glory. The fame. Who can resist?

Turns out sysadmins can.

Last time I checked, the Oracle ACE program had 417 ACES and ACE Directors. Of those 417, only 6 have a specialty in Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux.

That's simply not enough to defend the homeland! I know there are many more sysadmins and developers proficient in Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux who can qualify to become Oracle ACES. Toss your silk scarf around your neck and grab your goggles. Then talk to me on the OTN Garage page on Facebook. I'll explain the benefits and help you enroll in pilot training.

I'm interested in became an Oracle ACE Linux Sysadmin but I don't have a Facebook account (and I really don't feel the need to create one). How can I engage on that program?

By the way, a Google+ page for that would be great besides the Facebook one.

guest: I'll send you an email. But yes, we do have a Google+ group called OTN Garage. I'm thinking of using it for these types of discussions. Look for it and let me know if you can connect.

Dear Rick,

Good afternoon.

I´m very interested in becoming an Oracle ACE or ACE Director on Solaris. I´ve been teaching Oracle/Sun courses (all of them) on Solaris since 2001 and, additionaly, I´m instructor at Symantec and EC-Council too.

Since 2009 I´m regular columnist and author in Linux Magazine Brazil (www.linuxmagazine.com.br) and I´ve already published a serie about Open Solaris (http://www.linux-magazine.com.br/noticia/tutoriais_completos_de_opensolaris_disponiveis_para_download).

My profile can be reached on: br.linkedin.com/in/aleborges/

Please, don´t matter the answer, send your opinion about my profile and possibility to get this ACE or ACE Director (preferred) position.

Have a nice day.

Alexandre Borges.

I'm surprised too that there are no developer ACEs. Back in the good ol' Sun days there were Sun HPC Aces. Now with Solaris Studio and Java, there should be developer ACEs too.
