Daniel Bozzolo

I don't like that for the 2nd time in two weeks we are recognising the far too early death of an Oracle Community Member.

Daniel Bozzolo was a quiet man, passionate about Oracle and the user community in Uruguay. I had met him many times and he has always been friendly, hospitable and a true gentleman. 

My favourite memory is 2015, the first leg of the Latin America Users-group Tour. As it was the first city, I had arrived early and Daniel met me at the airport. his english was never brilliant but it didn't stop him being an amazing host.

I love Montevideo, and we met up with other friends and wandered enjoying the sunshine before spending the evening with Edelweiss and Nelson.

Then Pablo and Daniel took Ronald, Cindy and myself to a beautiful town of Colonia. We had a wonderful day, Which, like Daniel, I will always remember.

Joel, You Would Love this #JoelKallmanDay

Today is  #JoelKallmanDay

Joel  was front and centre of the Oracle Community. When he left us, too soon, I shared this post that I wrote back in 2015 about his passion.

One line says "I believe people don't use APEX because they struggle to believe a 'no cost' option has value. Well Joel has launched his #LetsWreckThisTogether twitter campaign to get the message across and he is winning."

I joined Inoapps last month and quickly blogged about how I was now an end user of Oracle SaaS but that isn't the only Oracle used inhouse.

As a startup company Inoapps had used a lot of APEX and over a period of time created a company portal that houses a lot of their specific applications. Today the portal gives access to bespoke APEX applications, Oracle SaaS and Analytics Cloud that combines the data. 

A no-cost option with no value - definitely NOT!

Doesn't Scale - Rubbish!

Not suitable for corporate systems - Wrong!

Joel's legacy remains #LetsWreckThisTogether and together means community.
