Within one week San Francisco will be colored "Oracle red" again for Oracle Open World - including Oracle Develop and JavaOne. Around 50,000 - usually easy to recognize - attendees will cover the streets, while moving from one conference location to the other. And I am privileged to be one of them! In fact, I am even more privileged to attend the Oracle ACE Director briefing at Oracle HQ in Redwood on Thursday and Friday before the big event... So that will make about 1.5 week in the Bay Area.
So it is going to be a busy week...but good fun anyway. The thing I like is that there are no "real" sessions before 10AM!
Creating a schedule for OOW is as difficult as ever. No matter what tools they provide, the endless possibilities of picking that most interesting session amongst the 100 in the same time slot is cumbersome. And then there are all the "social events"... it is hard to pick the right one there too, because there is a large amount of overlap as well. But I managed...and created this schedule for that week - where orange = APEX, green = social and the rest is....well, the rest.
