ODTUG Cross-Community Initiatives Outreach
A strong sense of community is a big part of what makes ODTUG such a vibrant and lasting organization. Because ODTUG is run mostly by volunteers, its members truly understand the value of giving back. At ODTUG Kscope19 we are looking to spotlight cross-community initiatives by ODTUG members from the Database, APEX, Analytics, and EPM communities who have volunteered their technical skills in a collaborative effort to drive positive change in the world. Read about two cross-community projects from the past year. Hurricane Florence NCDOT Road Closure, Gas Station Navigation App and for all a beautiful earth (fab.earth). If you have teamed up with members of the ODTUG community on a project that spans more than two Oracle technologies, we want to hear about it!
