Break New Ground

Oracle ACE Program: A High-Five for New Members and Category Climbers

Bob Rhubart
Community Manager, Oracle Groundbreakers Team

The 25 people featured in this post have a great deal in common. Each has demonstrated substantial technical skill and knowledge about Oracle technologies across a variety of specialties and interests. But beyond that, each has shown considerable enthusiasm for sharing that expertise with the community through articles, presentations, videos, and other means of communication. Those two factors, technical skill and an enthusiasm for sharing it, are what the Oracle ACE Program is all about.

The faces looking up at you from this page belong to the latest crop of experts to earn a place at one of the three levels in that program, having been confirmed in the first quarter of calendar year 2019. Read a bit about them. Reach out to them. They're great resources.

As you head out to conferences or meet-ups over the next several months, the chances are good that you'll see some of these folks. If so, I think a congratulatory high-five is in order.

Well done, people!
