Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne 2014 Cometh

This time next week, we’ll be in the thick of the Oracle super-conference, the combination of Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne.

This year, our team and our larger organization, Oracle Applications User Experience, will have precisely a metric ton of activities during the week.

For the first time, our team will be doing stuff at JavaOne too. Anthony (@anthonyslai) will be talking about the IFTTPi workshop we built for the Java team for MakerFaire back in May on Monday, and Tony will be showing those workshop demos in the JavaOne OTN Lounge at the Hilton all week.

If you’re attending either show or both, stop by, say hello and ask about our custom wearable.

Speaking of wearables, Ultan (@ultan) will be hosting a Wearables Meetup a.k.a. Dress Code 2.0 in the OTN Lounge at OpenWorld on Tuesday, September 30 from 4-6 PM. We’ll be there, and here’s what to expect:

  • Live demos of wearables proof-of-concepts integrated with the Oracle Java Cloud.
  • A wide selection of wearable gadgets available to try on for size.
  • OAUX team chatting about use cases, APIs, integrations, UX design, fashion and how you can use OTN resources to build your own solutions.

Update: Here are Bob (@OTNArchBeat) and Ultan talking about the meetup.

Here’s the list of all the OAUX sessions:
