In honor of Flashback Friday, ODTUG President Mike Riley compiled a list of quotes of Kscope past, present, and we hope future speakers and attendees. We want you to go to Kscope for all of the reasons listed below.
“It’s at Kaleidoscope you realize we all have so much in common” – Monty
– ODTUG Vice President (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2009/04/22/remembering-kaleidoscope%e2%80%99s-past/)
“My best memories of previous conferences are the friends and contacts that I have made. There are plenty of fun activities and the day of service is a great opportunity to give back if you get to the conference early.” – Lewis Cunningham – Oracle ACE Director (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/countdown-to-kaleidoscope-2010-begins/)
“If I could only go to one conference, it would be Kaleidoscope… hands down, every time.” – John Scott – Oracle ACE Director (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/02/03/odtug-kaleidoscope-interview-with-john-scott/)
“This is a great conference for sharing experience and learning from the community.” – Sue Harper – Former Senior Principal Product Manager for Database Development Tools – Oracle
“I remember thinking to myself how awesome it was to have that much talent and experience in one room and knowing that you could not find that anywhere else.” Gary Crisci – Oracle ACE (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/03/01/gary-crisci-interview-on-kaleidoscope-2010/)
“For Oracle APEX developers, there is no place that even comes close to the depth & breadth of content & presenters that will be at ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2010″ – Scott Spendolini – Oracle ACE Director (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/03/08/scott-spendolini-odtug-kaleidoscope-and-washington-dc/)
“There is no doubt in my mind that if you’re a developer working with Oracle technologies, of any sort, you need to be at Kaleidoscope!” – Duncan Mills – Oracle Development Tools Division (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/03/17/duncan-mills-laptop-throwing-and-condensed-soup/)
“Kaleidoscope is one of my favorite conferences. It has a focus and intimacy that are both lost in the bigger conferences. I don’t mind talking to people who haven’t a clue about PL/SQL, but I would much rather hang out with other development geeks – and Kaleidoscope is the place to do it.” – Steven Feuerstein – Oracle ACE Director (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/03/23/interview-with-steven-feuerstein/)
“I’ve been to several large Oracle conferences around the world including Open World, where I met and spoke to many people. My visit to Kaleidoscope, New Orleans and last year Monterey was where I solidified strong friendships with people who are “super-keen” about what they do. This is an incredibly refreshing attitude which on return to work keeps me going with a buzz for many weeks… at least until the next pay check.” – Chris Muir – Oracle ACE Director (http://odtug.wordpress.com/2010/03/30/countdown-to-kaleidoscope-90-days-to-go-chris-muir-interview/)
