Hi [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

Happy New Year!

This year's first edition is mainly about blog posts as no new features have been pushed out lately apart from the global availability of API Management Service before holidays. But be sure to check Martin's video blog series about Terraform and OCI. Really detailed posts with lots of good information!

I'm really eager to see where Oracle is heading with OCI, what do you think will be biggest announcements this year? And can they bring more and more popularity to their cloud services?

Direction is good at least in my opinion!

New Features

API Gateway Service has reached global availability! Be sure to go through the official documentation to get details.
