Scenes From the First OTN Developer Day for Cloud Application Developers

Yesterday we held our first OTN Developer Day for Cloud Application Developers and what a day it was.  It was standing room only as we had a packed room of developers at this free, live event at the Oracle Conference Center in Redwood Shores. The developers who attended yesterday's event got to hear and see firsthand how Oracle Cloud Platform Services make developing and deploying enterprise-grade business applications in the cloud faster and easier than ever before.

The day included service overview presentations by Oracle Cloud product managers, but the bulk of the time was spent doing hands-on exercises with the Java Cloud Service and Database Cloud Service. All in all, it was a great event and we look forward to running more OTN Developer Days for Cloud Application Developers in the future. Stay tuned. In the meantime, here's a couple of pictures from the event...enjoy!

The presentations from the event are all available for downloaded here. To learn more about Oracle Cloud, go to oracle.com/cloud. If you want to take Oracle Cloud Platform Services for a spin on your own, go to cloud.oracle.com and sign up for a 30-day free trial.

Two Cloudy Observations from Oracle OpenWorld

Now that the dust has settled from another amazing Oracle OpenWorld, I wanted to reflect back on a couple of key observations I made during the event.

First, it was pretty clear that Cloud was again a big deal at this year's conference. It was hard to not notice that Oracle continues to be "all-in" with respect to cloud computing. Just to give you an idea of the emphasis on Cloud, there were over 300 Cloud-related sessions at this year's OpenWorld. If you caught some of the demo booths in the Oracle Red Lounge, then you saw some of the great platform, application, and social services that are now part of Oracle Cloud, as well as numerous demos of private cloud products that Oracle offers.

Second, during Thomas Kurian's keynote presentation on Oracle Cloud, he announced the Preview Availability of a new service called Oracle Developer Cloud Service. This new platform service will provide developers with instant access to environments to better manage the application development lifecycle in the cloud. It provides development project teams access to favorite tools like Hudson, Git, Github, wikis, and tasks to help make innovation faster, more collaborative, and more effective. There's also integration with IDEs like Eclipse, NetBeans, and JDeveloper. If you're a developer, it's an awesome addition to Oracle Cloud's platform services!
