ODTUG Kaleidoscope is coming up

With the change in my job duties, I have less involvement in Oracle stuff than I did previously, but I'm still on a number of mailing lists. So I received the most recent mailing from the Oracle Development Tools User Group. Who is ODTUG, you may ask. Go ahead, ask. I'll answer:

ODTUG is an independent, not-for-profit global organization providing education, support, advocacy, and networking opportunities for all developers, using a variety of technologies, who work on Oracle Databases.

ODTUG's 20,000+ members design applications, model data, write code, manage application systems, maintain legacy code, and are key to the middle-tier technology in Oracle Fusion.

ODTUG's annual conference, ODTUG Kaleidoscope, is considered the premier conference for developers in the Oracle community.

The mailing itself concerned ODTUG Kaleidoscope, which will be held in Washington, DC between June 27 and July 1.

The part that caught my eye was the list of Oracle ACE Directors and Oracle ACEs that will be attending the conference, and also presenting at the conference. As I type this, the list of presenters includes a number of ACE-types:

Christopher Barbieri, Ranzal & Associates
Gary Crisci, Morgan Stanley
Lewis Cunningham, TUSC
Lonneke Dikmans, Approach Alliance
Paul Dorsey, Dulcian, Inc.
Steven Feuerstein, Quest Software
Dimitri Gielis, Sumneva
Marco Gralike, AMIS Services BV
Roel Hartman, Logica
Lucas Jellema, AMIS
Matjaz B. Juric, SOA Competency Centre, BPELmentor
Peter Koletzke, Quovera
Anjo Kolk, Miracle Benelux
Jonathan Lewis, JL Computer Consultancy
Raj Mattamal, Niantic Systems, LLC
Tracy McMullen, interRel Consulting
Cary Millsap, Method R Corporation
Karen Morton, Agilex Technologies
Chris Muir, SAGE Computing Services
Mauricio Naranjo, One It World Corp.
Anton Nielsen, C2 Consulting
Hajo Normann, HP Enterprise Services
Mark Rittman, Rittman Mead
Edward Roske, interRel Consulting
Guido Schmutz, Trivadis
Glenn Schwartzberg, interRel Consulting
John Scott, Sumneva
Mark Simpson, Griffiths Waite
Scott Spendolini, Sumneva
Ronald van Luttikhuizen, Approach
Sten Vesterli, Scott/Tiger A/S
Torsten Winterberg, OPITZ CONSULTING GmbH

And there will be other ACEs and ACE Directors at the conference - and those that don't make it may be talking about it in the ODTUG forum on, created by Oracle ACE Director Eddie Awad.

Now I don't know all of the ACEs and ACE Directors that are listed, but the ones that I do know testify to the brainpower that will be at this conference. When you can get acknowledged experts to come to your conference, that will just make the experience more worthwhile for everyone.
