On February 5, 2020, the first Oracle Academy Day of the year was held in Mexico. We were pleased to receive 18 students from the Technological University of Nezahualcóyotl and the University of the Americas of Mexico City. The GenO’s, the intern group of Oracle Mexico, delivered five talks to the students.
Carlos González and Alberto Álvarez talked about emerging technologies, deepening the students’ understanding of issues around blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital assistants, and more.
Levi Rodríguez carried out a demonstration of Oracle Autonomous Database, from its operation to the creation of the database, to its visualization and data analysis.
Security expert Adolfo de Moure spoke about the importance of strengthening and securing databases and what this means for customers.
Luis Alcántara transmitted to students and teachers concepts of programming, and later conducted an activity on executing it.
To conclude the event, Fernanda Pazarán and José Clemente Orozco presented success stories where Oracle solutions have helped improve processes in various industries, and also reminded all attendees of the benefits of belonging to the Oracle Academy, discussing the free curriculum and resources we provide to educators and students.
“I enjoyed giving the talk. I want to do it again and also discuss other topics,” said Levi Rodríguez, a member of GenO.
In each of the presentations, the students were encouraged to think “disruptively” to develop skills that will open doors to them in the labor market. These types of events inspire students to learn about Oracle technologies and solutions.
One of the benefits that universities and other educational institutions receive by being part of Oracle Academy is that they can attend events such as this where students learn about the most important technology issues in the world today. We thank our Oracle volunteers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with the students.
