During July 2019, Oracle Academy supported Oracle Groundbreakers and Oracle User Group (OUG) evangelists in India who organized a roadshow called the ‘Oracle Groundbreakers Yatra’. The Yatra (which means tour) travelled across the country, hosting 10 events across 10 major cities over 16 days.

The tour brought together the broader Oracle community within the country, providing attendees with information and awareness of the latest Oracle technologies and improving their level of knowledge.

Oracle Academy joined the Yatra as an opportunity to create a platform for students and faculty to meet industry experts and helped the OUG to find the venues at our member colleges.

Around 30 students from three to four Oracle Academy member institutions in each city where the Yatra traveled were able to join the sessions by international experts on such varied topics such as Oracle Cloud, DevOps, Oracle Autonomous Database, Data Warehousing, and Oracle APEX. They were able to acquire knowledge direct from Oracle experts and get a deep dive into different skills areas.

Feedback from the attending students was positive, and included the following comments:

“The whole program was well-managed by the members. Everything happened in perfect time. I really gained good knowledge.”

“A good environment which polished my skills. Overall, a good event.”

“I learned so many new things about Oracle services and tools which I wasn’t aware of. I’d like to attend more such programs.”

“It was a good experience to explore different services provided by Oracle. Skills development will add value to my knowledge.”
