It's been 7 months since we kicked off the Oracle Code series in the Bay Area, and since then we’ve visited 17 countries to host thousands of developers, and promote the best and latest content about modern cloud application development. Now, we are 7 days away from the 21st Code event right back to the start: San Francisco!
After all that learning, traveling, eating, drinking, and laughing, we're back with 7 great reasons for developers to join us at Oracle Code San Francisco on Oct. 3.
If you feel like attending JavaOne or Oracle OpenWorld is too much of a commitment to spend — pun intended — an entire week at, we've got you covered. Oracle Code San Francisco is free for developers to attend!
By attending the Code conference you also get access to a Developer Lounge where you can interact with many high-tech experiences built from the ground-up using Oracle Cloud technologies, Raspberry Pies, and Java. Meet for instance, the upcoming BulletTime Video Ring, which creates a Matrix-like video effect with you as the star.
No matter where we went in the world, developers wanted the same thing from a conference: great content and great speakers. And we've got this covered as well. Developers will hear from great speakers such as Adam Bien, Chris Richardson, Baruch Sadogursky, Frank Munz, Leonid Igolnik, Lucas Jellema, Sean Philips, Johan Vos, Viktor Gamov, and Pratik Patel, as well few excellent Oracle speakers like Boris Scholl, Geertjan Wielenga, Joe Levy, Chad Arimura, Connor McDonald, and Dan Mcghan. Here goes the #FollowTuesday by the way!
On Oct. 3, between 4pm and 6:30pm, we will hold the Oracle Code Keynote with Patrick Debois, who will talk about DevOps, and Oracle experts who will share how cloud is changing the way developers build software. Plus, look for some special guests. Right after the keynote, there’s a concerton Howard Street with the folks from Royal Machines bringing the rock'n roll. Beer's on us!
Oracle Code has three unique hands-on lab opportunities on Tuesday that developers can access for free. Register for these hands-on labs and learn with experts while practicing your coding skills. Find out which labs are available and register for them after signing up for the event.
Also, join Docker engineers and developer advocates like Mano Marks, Eric Smalling, and Ben Bonnefoy and attend the Docker 101 Hands-on Lab on Tuesday at 8am. Plus, don’t miss “Modernizing Traditional Apps: Java Edition,” another session by Docker engineers.
If all that above isn’t enough, here's another tip: developers can go on Monday to the Moscone Center, collect their badges, and hang out at the Exhibition Hall. Pick-up a t-shirt and start getting used to the venue, the people, and network with other developers around JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld.
