OTN Clothes an Entire Nation of Developers

Apparently there is quite an "OTN nation" in the Faroe Islands, between
Iceland and Norway.

Recently Oracle ACE Grant Ronald from the Forms team absconded there to lead a hands-on SOA/Java/Forms workshop, and he is confident that the entire developer community (numbering 33 Faroese) was in attendance:

According to one of them, Michael Thomsen of
Faroese Telecom, "Even though the Faroe Islands is a small nation in terms of
population, our infrastructure for supporting the telecommunications industry and other businesses is as complex as anyone else's. In turn, this requires tools and frameworks for developing efficient and cost effective solutions. This
workshop gave us the chance to address nearly the whole Oracle development
community, introducing Oracle's SOA story, tools strategy, and getting hands on
with Oracle
JDeveloper and ADF. This will definitely be the catalyst for new events in the Faroes, and an active local Oracle community."

The reach of the OTN Community knows no bounds!

That would be great to reproduce here in Mauritius Island. I can gather the whole local Oracle dev community anytime and organise everything to welcome Grant !!
