Oracle's Rich Community Conversations

Been doing a lot of research into the community help and support area lately. Of course, we should remember Oracle already has powerful community resources to hand, contributing a very rich and lively conversation with valuable how-to information and examples to try.

For example, there are the My Oracle Support Community and Oracle Technology Network (OTN) forums, the Sun communities,  official wiki, and internal and external blogs from employees like David Haimes, as well as enthusiastic non-employee gurus like Chet Justice (OracleNerd), and friends, Floyd Teter, Eddie Awad (check out Eddie's news aggregator for more names), and so on.

There are lots of other Oracle voices other there too: the user groups, Oracle Mix,and so on. The best place to get started, in my opinion, is the AppsLab. I usually track all this stuff through Twitter. I'll come up a list of the best tweeters soon!

Comments:

Thanks for the kind words. I guess on coda to our blog is that it's not very topical, at least not lately, i.e. it's more general technology and geerky rather than Oracle product discussion. Anyway.

Thanks Jake. I think we can well consider AppsLab as part of the collective intelligence out there!

Thanks for the mention and even a screen shot of my blog, I'm flattered. I was inspired mostly by database bloggers who I learned a lot from and encouraged by the AppsLab, it's pleaseing for me to see the number of Apps Blogs and communities growing in recent years.

I second what David says. Thank you. That particular article, the EBS Install Guide, was written by John Piwowar and it has become, in just a year, one of the most popular series of posts on my site. Now he's demanding I pay him. :p chet
