Oracle ACE Directors + 1 — Gwen Shapira

Posted in: Technical Track

Quick post congratulating Gwen Shapira on becoming Oracle ACE Director. Gwen has be an Oracle ACE for a while by now and been very active in the community. Widely recognized in the conferencing circles and a frequent blogger, Gwen has recently been focusing a lot on Big Data and many of her recent articles have become widely known and popular. Gwen has also been volunteering her time on the board of NoCOUG user group for four years now.

When it comes to Gwen’s technical skills, she has proven she knows right things and can do real stuff — just over a year after joining Pythian as a DBA, Gwen has moved to Pythian Consulting Group as a top notch consultant. This is something that only very few achieve.

Thanks Gwen for being so passionate and energized about technology and Oracle community — lots of us appreciate your contributions and Oracle ACE Director recognition is just one way to show it — thanks to Oracle Technology Network for that recognition.

So… Congratulations Gwen! Now we expect even more from you — I’m not sure how you will manage it but you signed up for it! ;)
