Master Class Series

    Best Practices from the Best Presenters

    Master ClassIt's like an extension of COLLABORATE tailored just for you. IOUG's Master Class Series lets you learn best practices in person from the leading Oracle experts in their specialties. New classes are scheduled several times a year in cities across the United States, but don't delay – class size is limited due to the one-on-one interaction you can expect at every class.

    • Developers
    • Enterprise Architects
    • Data Professionals
    • Anyone looking to connect and learn from Oracle veterans

You'll also leave with an in-depth understanding of best practices that you can apply over and over again in the months and years to come. It's win-win-win for you, your boss and your organization.
