OpenWorld 2010 is Coming up Fast

OpenWorld 2010 (@oracleopenworld) is fast approaching. It’s September 19-23 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, under the big tent, at nearby hotels, pretty much all over the area of San Francisco.

If you recall recent OpenWorlds, you’ll know it’s a huge (read 40,000 people) show, and this year will be no different because JavaOne is joining Oracle Develop, making that a mega-event unto itself.

Oh, and the Black Eyed Peas are headlining the customer appreciation event.

Anyway, early bird pricing for both events ends July 16, so get on that. As in past years, the blogger program has been renewed. I hear that Friends of the ‘Lab John (@jpiwowar) and Chet (@oraclenerd) will be making the trek as bloggers.

I read an interesting post over at the newly-minted Oracle Fusion Financials blog, my old team. This year’s OpenWorld will include an introduction to Fusion Financials, as well as a top ten questions about Fusion Financials session.

If you have a question about Fusion Financials, leave it in the comments over at the Fusion Financials blog. Your question might be selected as one of the top ten.

You can read more about these sessions and other Financials sessions of note at the Oracle Financials Product Marketing blog.

Paul (@ppedrazzi), Anthony (@anthonyslai) and I all came to AppsLab (@theappslab) from Fusion development teams, so we still have ties to Fusion, even though we’re now a middleware outfit.

I know people like Floyd (@fteter) have seen Fusion before, but I think this will be the first time Fusion is shown to a wider audience.

Anyway, make your plans now. I think we’ll all be there this year, and maybe we’ll have a hackathon or something to work on WebCenter tools, especially if people bring some ideas with them, e.g. John Sim’s AIR app.

  1. Yup, blogger reg, room, and plane tix acquired, can't wait. Trying to figure out how to clone myself so I can hit all the sessions of interest and still have time for the demo grounds, unconferencing, tweetups/nerdups/etc. Looking forward to meeting people with whom I normally just exchange 140-character quips.

  2. I would suggest you rest up and get lots of sleep the week prior. It's a marathon, especially if you're not staying close, e.g. in Union Square. I can't imagine how much bigger Java One is going to make it.

  3. My hotel's about 5 blocks from the epicenter, I think. But yeah, I'll be resting up beforehand. One advantage is that this time around, I'm unlikely to be working during the evenings.

  4. I will???!!1one! Dammit. Well, it better be more entertaining than late-night patching and cloning to support an EBS Advanced Benefits and PLM rollout, that's all I have to say. 🙂

  5. Yeah, you should be. 🙂 OTOH, by the reverse “awful”=”good” scale that applies to evaluating puns, feeling shame is a sign of successful execution. If you hurt yourself as well as your audience, it's a job well done.
