My private Corner A week with friends in Spain
Paas Forum
Once a year we host the PaaS Partner Community Forum. We established this annual conference 2007 in Copenhagen. This year the event took place in Majorca Spain. It was great to see the community come together, meet old and new friends. Enjoyed the excellent presentations, demo and hands-on trainings, as well as meeting good frieds. The networking exchange between Oracle product management, sales and partners was fabulas. Just like a mini version of Oracle OpenWorld focused for PaaS. One of the highlights was the community day, your contribution and the API JET demo by Phil Wilkins in my community update. For those you took the last bus from the networking dinner, thanks fro the most remarable ride in my life. One Family member, Bandit the Cloud expert was missing this year. He recovered from an accident and plans to attend the Summer Camps in Lisbon.
Thanks for the wonderful week #jkwc!
Invite your colleagues to join the PaaS Partner Community
