I'm very happy to announce one of our long standing AUSOUG committee members Tony Jambu, has been awarded by Oracle, the much-sort-after Oracle Ace Award. Tony has been a long, consistent and dedicated personality on the Australian and overseas Oracle conference and user group scene, so this award from Oracle is a small and prestigious show of Oracle's appreciation of his efforts. As President of the Victorian AUSOUG committee, I'd like to extend my congratulations to Tony on receiving this award, and note once again how lucky Australia as well as Melbourne is to have such Oracle talent in our ranks.
For the record, how does Oracle pick an Oracle Ace? Oracle Aces are technically proficient and eager to share their experience, whether through writing books, articles, or blogs, speaking at events, participating in OTN Discussion Forums, or simply serving as Oracle advocates in their respective organisations. Candidates are nominated by either existing Oracle Aces or Oracle product management on an ongoing basis and ratified by a nomination committee.
