Oracle OpenWorld 2017 – Time to plan your schedule

 

There’s only a month to go until Oracle Open Worldthe largest gathering of Oracle customers, partners, developers, and technology enthusiasts, which begins on October 1st in San Francisco. Of course the database development groups will be there and you will have multiple opportunities to meet the teams, in one of our 456 technical sessions, or at the Oracle Database demogrounds (The EXchange).

This year there are a couple of new things I want to bring to your attention as well highlighting some of the sessions I think you should consider checking out!

First up, locations!

All of the Oracle Database technical sessions will take place in Moscone West this year, rather than Moscone South, since parts of it are still under construction.  You will also find the Database Demogrounds on the ground floor of Moscone West.

Speaking of the demoground, it has a new name this year, The EXchange and it has a new look too. You will find a dedicated developers lounge, where you can meet the experts, take a workshop or grab a beer. We will also have mini-theaters in demoground area, so stay tuned for more details on what sessions will happen there closer to the event.

The Database Hands-on-Labs also have a new location this year. They are going to be at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square (Lobby Level). The map below will tells you where to find everything you will need (right click on the map to open it in a new tab if you want a bigger image).

Now that the full searchable OOW catalog is available on-line, it’s time to start planning your schedule!

I’ve put together a short list of my top 4 sessions for each day that I’m hoping to attend to give you a little inspiration!
