Oracle Fusion Applications 11G is now available! You can get the installation from the Oracle E-Delivery site in no time. This is the moment many of us have been waiting for, if not for many years then for many months for sure. Keeping in mind the amount of effort Oracle have invested in the product and the fact that the product is going to be a flagship ERP system on the market for at least next 10 years the most important thing is to get an access to the documentation.

I’ve been so amazed by the community response to my requests over the past few days that I just HAD to blog about it. In this post I’ll cover Oracle MIX and Suggest-a-Session voting, my very first experience and approach to the event, and special thanks to those who showed their support.

I was reading my session evaluation results and came accross comment that said: “copy and paste coder.” I’ve been doing this specific presentation for almost 5 years now with a few tweaks every once in a while based on feedback. Yes, I live and breathe disaster recovery as part of my day-to-day job. However, there are several reasons why I do not type nor write code during my presentations. Here are a few of them.
