· This month: Where do you fit in the Cloud? Cloud computing played a big role at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 in San Francisco, and it's likely to play a big role in your future. For that reason, two items in this newsletter will be of particular interest. The New Cloud You, an article from the latest edition of Oracle Magazine, features insight from community members on how they're handling the transition to the cloud. The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast, Cloud Architect - Rising to the Role, features a roundtable discussion by six community leaders about what it takes to find success in this emerging role. Also on the topic of cloud computing, replays of the September OTN Virtual Technology Summit middleware track sessions are now available via a dedicated group space on the OTN Community website. These sessions presented how-to technical content focused on Oracle PaaS services, including Mobile Cloud Service, Process Cloud Service, and Java Cloud Service. To view these replays, just join the group space. Membership is free. As a member, you'll be able to interact with session presenters and other community members to find answers to your PaaS questions. Join the group now.
