Last night I presented to the Australian Computer Society in Melbourne and took the chance to talk to people a little bit about Oracle, some of the work that we are doing and how people end up finding jobs with us.
Special thanks go out to Yasas and Daphne from ACS for their support in organising this event, and also to Fiona and Amrit from the Young IT committee for helping out and not to forget Dylan (Swinburne Student Ambassador), who did the poster. Thanks also go to Wayne Moncur, Vic Immediate Past Chair for attending the event.
From what I could see we had approximately 40 people attend and it was good to talk to people before and after the presentation as well. One surprise was that in a room full of IT people only myself and one other person currently uses Twitter (I would have thought there would have been a few more). It is great to see such enthusiasm about Oracle in the IT community and hopefully the session was informative for everyone.
