The UKOUG is presenting a day of sessions which can bring you up to speed. It's a joint initiative between the Development and Middleware SIGs - a composite if you will - at the Oracle City Office on Thursday 6th September. This event is free. If you are a UKOUG member attending it won't count against your allotment of SIG delegates; if you're not a UKOUG member there's no charge so come along and get a taste of what the UKOUG has to offer.
Even last year these things might have been considered cutting edge, certainly in the enterprise realm. But most organisations of whatever size are at least thinking about or running Proof of Concept projects in AI or blockchain. Some already have these technologies active in Production. These things will affect everybody working in IT, and probably sooner rather than later. It's always good to know what's coming.
Oh, and did I mention it's free? Treat yourself to a day out from the present and get a glimpse of the future.
