It Doesn't Get Better Than This
According to a post on his DBA On Tap blog, Oracle ACE Associate Danny Bryant reports that he is frequently asked, "What do you get for being an ACE?"
He provides an answer, but then goes on to explain that maybe that's the wrong question. He suggests that those people ask, "What's in it for me?"
Danny then goes on to give three terrific examples of what the Oracle ACE program can mean to an individual, to a private sector business, or to a public sector organization.
So for this week's edition of Best of OTN, we think it doesn't get any better than Danny's post -- and his attitude.
Take a moment to read his post and see for yourself. Oracle ACE: What's in it for Me?
