It seems that it becoming common for people to write a personal review of the year. If you’re old school Christmas Card sort then it gets printed and put in the card. If you’re a bit more hip then it’s a Facebook post. For those trendier than that, who knows?
Anyway, I thought I’d use my blog to reflect on what has happened and what we hope to be upto in 2018.
So the big headlines for us …
- 1st book published as a co-author about ICS, started another book project which should be finished in 2018.
- Packt have been talking to me about another book project (even though my contribution to book 2 not yet finished!) Have to admit what is being suggested is intriguing and a bit different
- Then there was the UKOUG Journey to the Cloud event. Having been postponed because of venue flooding it was good to see this happen. Not to mention it being one of s number of events I have presented at this year.
- We attended and presented at the Oracle EMEA Partner Conference for the 1st time and presented with my co-author on ICS.
- Contributions to supporting the UKOUG as part of a SIG committee member, reviewed for Oracle Scene. Being involved in a SIG committee also meant helping plan the conference.
- Writing hasn’t just been about the books, we continue to write our own blog posts, content for Oracle-integration.cloud plus several journals including Oracle Technology Network,
- Presenting at Oracle Open World for the 1st time, and signing copies of our book on ICS
- Promoted from an Oracle Ace Associate to a full Oracle Ace.
So where will 2018 take us, well somethings we’re confident of …
- Wrapping up my contribution to the API Platform book
- Blog posts both here and at Oracle-Integration.cloud
- Middleware SIG committee activities in addition to event committee activities
- Presenting to the nlOUG SIG on OMESA
- Lots more with London Oracle Developer Meetup – perhaps flying some drones with APIs.
What do we hope to pull off …
