Passionate About Linux and Open Source? 
Do you like to blog, present, or write about Linux or open source? If so, the Linux team/open source team would love to hear from you. Contact for more information.
Gifts for ACE Program Members
We will distribute the new yearly gift to continuing members during the ACE Director Product Briefing and the ACE dinner at Oracle OpenWorld. If you are not attending OpenWorld but you have an ACE friend that can pick up the gift for you, we can send your gift with that ACE. I will send out a survey in August for your gift and delivery preferences.

Please note that we cannot ship gifts to Bahrain, Colombia, Cuba, Indonesia, Israel, N. Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and Turkmenistan.
Oracle OpenWorld / Code One Update
Conference Pass Waitlist
We had a huge number of requests for Oracle OpenWorld/Code One passes this year, so I am thrilled so many of you will be attending. If you received a conference pass code and registered for the conference and no longer need the pass, please let me know as soon as you can.

Many of you are on a waitlist for the Conference pass and I appreciate your patience. I am waiting to see who will not need their passes and then I will secure more to distribute to you.

Hotel: Registration Deadline Extended to August 22
If you are receiving travel support from the Groundbreakers program or want to use the ACE program room block, you need to book by August 22, 2019.

Self-Pay Hotel Block at the Hotel Abri
We have arranged for a limited number of hotel rooms for current Associates, ACEs, and ACE Directors who will self-pay (meaning they will not receive travel support from the ACE Program). The cost is approximately $400 per night (taxes included). Rooms are available on a first-come, first serve basis for dates between Sept 13-19, and must be booked by August 22, 2019. The booking code for self-pay rooms is: GBAAbri19
(The booking code is only for ACE program members and is non-transferable.)

Hotel Block at the Handerly Hotel for ACE Directors
If you are an ACE Director attending the ACE Director Briefing or presenting at Oracle OpenWorld, please use this code for the Handerly Hotel: GEliteHan19P
(The booking code is only for ACE Directors and Groundbreaker Ambassadors and is non-transferable.)

Conference Activities
We are already planning fun things for you for Oracle OpenWorld! Keep these dates in mind:

Saturday, Sept 14: Oracle ACE Director Briefing
Sunday, Sept 15: Groundbreaker Ambassador Briefing
