Oye! Help Build OTN America Latina!/OTN America Latina Tour

You don't often get a chance to shape the direction of a technical comunidad

Well, OTN American Latina is just starting up. If you're a techie who speaks Spanish or Portuguese, or if you just like hanging out with techies latinoamericanos (and who doesn't?), here's how to get in on the fun:

And here are the sites themselves:

If you're not sure which site to visit, just remember that Brazilian Portuguese is Spanish spoken with a little body English.

What's more, in July, Oracle ACE Directors Arup Nanda, Ronald Bradford, Debra Lilly, Muralli Valath, and others will join Oracle-employee database gurus Tom Kyte, Graham Wood, and Kuassi Mensah for a speaking tour of Latin/South America user groups. The whole spiel is organized by ACE Director Francisco Munoz Alvarez, who was instrumental in jump-starting new UGs in Chile and elsewhere in 2009. In Francisco's words:

Three years ago, when speaking in some conferences around the world with some of my fellows Oracle ACE Directors, I discovered that no one ever heard of Latin American OUGs. So I decided to bring international Oracle speakers to the region for the first time (in April 2009), and then on the first OTN Tour in 2010. After this great experience I helped found the LAOUC (The Latin American Oracle Users Community) with the help of other fellow friends and a new dream came to life!

If you are in the region do not miss this great opportunity to network and learn from some of the great experts in the Oracle community. The cities & dates are:

  • San Jose, Costa Rica – July 5
  • Quito, Ecuador – July 8
  • Cartagena de Indias, Colombia – July 11
  • Lima, Peru – July 13
  • Sao Paulo, Brazil – July 16
  • Montevideo, Uruguay – July 19
  • Santiago, Chile – July 22

You can find information about this tour in Spanish and Portuguese.

We are looking to create a Technology OUG in Argentina to include it on next year tour.
