ODTUG Kscope23 Recap
Saturday (June 24, 2023)
The conference kicked off on Saturday with the annual Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day. This happens every Saturday before the conference and is a way for ODTUG to give back to the local community. This year ODTUG partnered with Mile High Behavioral Health Care (MHBHC) in Aurora, CO, and assisted them with some much-needed repairs and clean-up at their facility.

ODTUG Kscope is the only conference that gives you an entire day of learning at no additional cost. Sunday is known for being the day of Oracle Symposiums. Sunday Symposiums were all about users getting extra time with Oracle Corporation experts, product managers, and development leaders. It was a healthy grasp of Oracle’s vision for the upcoming year and the chance to ask Oracle product managers direct questions about the products.

The conference formally kicks off on Monday with an entertaining General Session. This year it was conducted by Oracle’s very own Carrie Nielsen and Vertice’s Abi Giles-Haigh, Oracle ACE Director. A key message this year was how AI is being used extensively throughout Oracle’s product ecosphere, lessening the administrative tasks users and administrators face, with many more use cases and promises to come. The predictive nature of this technology wowed the crowd. Carrie and Abi talked about Oracle Analytics’ partnership in the international sports arena.
Then the main content sessions began. Presenters from all over the world talked about their experiences with Oracle products and emerging technologies. Content is promised to be high-quality at Kscope, and this year they honored that vow. Strategically placed networking events helped break up the learning throughout the week.

Oracle ACEs are always in abundance at ODTUG Kscope. Oracle ACE Lunch and Learn panels with Oracle ACE Directors, ACE Pros, and ACE Associates who are designated by Oracle Corporation. You will find ACEs from every level presenting, helping customers, working with Oracle product managers, and providing guidance on all things Oracle. It was a great opportunity to connect with the ACEs to talk shop, hang out, and enjoy one of the major perks of the Oracle ACE program. Thanks to the Oracle ACE program!

One of the most dynamic gatherings of the year—the ODTUG Kscope23 Women in Technology (WIT) event—held on Wednesday afternoon. It was a great event, where we discussed and shared the experiences of women in technology, as well as diversity in the workplace.
The Kscope Wednesday night special event is an entertaining party and a much-deserved break from all the educational content! This year it was hosted at the Denver Aquarium and attendees were able to tour the facility, while being treated to amazing food, drinks, and a smorgasbord of entertainment.
