Microsoft Code Camp

Last Saturday I attended a Microsoft developer's code camp event in Fort Lauderdale. You might be wondering why I am attending a MS event while working with ADF and Java. First of all these events are really great opportunities to see what is going on in the Microsoft world. Secondly I usually try to attend more generic sessions so that I can benefit more. I really enjoyed it again .. Those were the keywords from the event
  • Azure - MS's cloud computing platform
  • Silverlight -MS technology that corresponds to flash/ JavaFX
  • SQL
  • Sharepoint
  • WCF
 I wonder why Oracle or Sun doesn't organize events like this .. Is that that tough ? Microsoft is putting a great effort to build and support their developer's community. I expect something similar from Oracle as an Oracle Developer.
