SOA & BPM Community Newsletter March 2016

Dear SOA & BPM Partner Community

We are looking forward to welcome many of you at the upcoming Fusion Middleware & PaaS Partner Community Forum XXII in Valencia Marc 15th & 16th 2016. The conference &Oracle Open World and the Summer Camps are part of the annual community highlights. It’s exciting to see the community to get together full of energy and to develop new ideas. We opened the conference registration 100 days in advance, after 50 days the conference was sold out! Special thanks to our sponsor Intel to allow us to host additional attendees – thank you! The conference will be focused on new middleware solutions and PaaS cloud services. In case you can’t make it to Valencia you will be able to access all presentation at the community workspace. Additional we plan to livestream some presentations via Periscope – follow soaCommunity and publish videos at our YouTube channel. In case you will attend the conference get prepared – get the mobile event app, use you PaaS trail service and network at the conference. Would be wonderful if everybody can share the knowledge & experience with your colleagues who can’t attend. Looking forward to read many blog posts and tweets about the conference. We will also offer you the workshop material & environments to re-run the hands-on trainings for your teams!

We continue to offer hands-on training across EMEA, for the latest training please visit the community training calendar here.

During my holiday Integration Cloud Service releases the 16.1.3 February releases. As the PaaS release cycles are short than om-premises releases it’s key to be updated and trained on the latest release. Special thanks to the community for all the excellent cloud articles:
