Four times a year, Oracle Technology Network produces a Virtual Technology Summit (VTS). This interactive online event offers technical tracks for database, Java, middleware, and operating systems. Each track includes several sessions, presented by Oracle ACEs, Java Champions, and Oracle product experts who share their insight and experiences through hands-on labs, technical presentations, and demos. Sign up to view previous summits on demand. And look out for the next VTS, in February 2016.
The Hangout is a new discussion space on community.oracle.com for all things systems-related. Network with other systems admins and developers, contribute your own technical articles, and share ideas for future VTS sessions.
The Hangout also features a brand-new blog. Connect with Oracle Technology Network Systems Community Manager Logan Rosenstein, Oracle ACEs, and other experts as they blog about the latest Oracle Technology Network events, how-to guides, and product updates—on topics ranging from Oracle SuperCluster to Oracle Solaris Immutable Zones.
Visit the new Oracle Community space and hang out.
