    Absolutely. Even your mom is welcome here. You can view almost all the content in the community without registering, so take a look around. You don't have to be an Oracle Marketing Cloud customer to participate. But we do admit that the certain areas like Do It, Know It, Code It and Dream It, are focused on the Oracle Marketing Cloud products and are geared toward Oracle Marketing Cloud product users.
