Istanbul is the biggest city of Turkey with more than 15 million population, and the largest companies of Turkey are located in Istanbul. So as you may expect, Istanbul is the heart of IT industry and most TROUG (Turkish Oracle User Group) members are located there. Therefore we (TROUG) preferred to organize our own events in Istanbul (and gave only a few presentations at the universities outside Istanbul). This year, we decided to expand our boundaries and give a chance to Ankara (the capital city of Turkey). We organized a user meeting yesterday. It was a full-day event and took place in TOBB University of Economics and Technology. In this event, I gave the keynote speech and tried to explain the reasons to join a user group. I also made a presentation about Enterprise Manager 12c: ASH Analytics.
I should say that participation was less than expected but it was still a successful event. All presentations were all very-well prepared and covered different areas such as Exadata MAA, Spatial, Audit Vault, SQLT, APEX. So
Here is the list of presentations:
Enterprise Manager 12c: ASH Analytics by me 🙂
Exadata Maximum Availability Architecture by Emre Baransel, Oracle
Oracle Audit Vault 12c by Serdar Cetinkaya, Oratech
12c Plugable Database Hands-On by Ozgür Umut Vurgun, Türk Telekom
Complex Applications with APEX by Ergem Peker, n11.com

I would like to thank all attendees and local organizers (Emre Baransel and Ozgur Umut Vurgun), and our host, TOBB University of Economics and Technology. I hope TROUG will organize more events in Ankara.
