Dear Oracle User Group Community Members,

the third edition of the e-magazine ORAWORLD is out now!

With the focus topic "Ready to embrace the Cloud?", we take a look back at our visit at Oracle Open World 2016 and pass in the reactions of the community to Oracle's new cloud-first strategy expressed at the last EOUC Leader Forum. We will also dive into the beta test of the Oracle Database 12.2

This issue is packed with news and information about your favourite user groups across Europe. And of course we have lots of infographics, comics and videos for you to explore!

Are you ready for the holiday season yet? We will help you get into the festive mood with tutorials for geeky cookies we absolutely love. These make great yummy gifts, too!

Take a look inside the e-magazine and enjoy!
