Dear ORAWORLD Readers

The twenty-fifth edition of our e-magazine ORAWORLD is out now!

This time Oracle ACE Director Jim Czuprynski shows which possibilities the Fast Ingest features of the database version 19c show in the focus of IOT. In the last issue we had Phil Wilkins’s article about GraphQL. Now Phil continues with the great responsibility of making APIs safe. Mounting an Oracle Cloud Object Storage Bucket as a file system on linux, Andre Ontalba gives an example of this.

The APEX user community is sure to be excited about the new possibilities Carsten Czarski has highlighted for the current APEX 21.1 release. This article is followed by a post of Adrian Png about Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Language Service.

I was particularly pleased about Kim Berg Hansen's article on the MASH Program. I hope that we can win some newcomers for lectures at user group conferences. A long-time companion in the Oracle community is Janny Ekelson from the Benelux User Group. But this time not with technical input but rather talking about having become a long-distance runner.

The first issue of the ORAWORLD magazine was published in May 2016. I can still remember the user group meeting when Ami Aharonovich from the Israel Oracle User Group proposed to publish a newsletter for better communication and identification with one another. Soon afterwards, Fried Saacke from the German Oracle User Group took up this idea and initiated ORAWORLD. Since then, I have been editor-in-chief of this magazine. With this issue I am now retiring and handing this task over to Mirela Ardelean from the Romanian User Group.

I am very happy that Mirela takes over this responsibility. Mirela not only has many years of deep knowledge of Oracle. As a member of the EOUC Board, she is also a recognized personality within the EMEA user groups and has a worldwide network. I would like to wish her and her team all the best for the future. At the same time, I would like to thank everyone who has supported me in the past in creating the magazines.

Enjoy reading our new ORAWORLD edition and stay healthy!
