Code One - Enabling Anyone that Builds

Matt Thompson
VP, Developer Engagement

Now in its second year, Oracle Code One will expand on last year’s theme of supporting and empowering the developer community by featuring three keynotes, more than 500 technical sessions, and 50 hands-on labs. Co-located with Oracle OpenWorld from September 16thto 19th, our goal is to “enable anyone that builds” by giving the community an opportunity to learn about new innovations in Java, Autonomous Database, Gen 2 infrastructure, and emerging technologies like the world’s first autonomous OS. Registration is still open to and can be found at oracle.com/code-one.

This year’s Code One Keynotes offer plenty of technical information, as well as some nostalgia and an inspirational story from one of Oracle’s very own cloud developer advocates. Here are the keynotes you want to make sure you attend:

The Future of Java 

This year’s Code One event kicks off first-thing Monday morning with the Java technical keynote led by Georges Saab, Vice President of Development, Java Platform and Brian Goetz Java Language Architect. This keynote will highlight how Oracle’s ongoing stewardship and ecosystem cooperation offers sustained innovation and addresses modern Java application development and discusses technology enhancements including what’s new in Java 13. Georges and other Java luminaries will also look ahead at cutting-edge OpenJDK projects in development focused on improving both developer productivity and performance while retaining Java’s core values of readability, generality, and compatibility. In addition, this year’s Duke’s Choice Award winners will be announced Monday at 4 p.m. PT 

Oracle Code One Keynote

Greg Pavlik, Senior Vice President and CTO, PaaS, Maria Colgan, Master Product Manager at Oracle, and special guest Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton will spearhead this year’s Code One keynote on Tuesday, September 17. This trio will explore everything from developing intelligent applications that bring together machine learning and disparate data sources to deliver a more personalized user experience, to the role data science plays across digital technologies such as IoT/IIoT, blockchain and autonomous data driven application systems. 

We are also honored to have Todd Sharp, one of our senior Cloud Developer Advocates at Oracle, share with us his inspiring account of how his background in development has helped both he and his daughter manage the complexities of her recent diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes. Todd will demonstrate on stage how a bit of coding, computer vision, machine learning (incorporated into an intelligent app), a digital scale, a back-end connection to the USDA public database and a whole host of other technologies helps easily calculate his daughter’s carbohydrate consumption and determine her next insulin dose. This is a must-see event for all attendees. For those unable to see the demonstration live, Todd will also be showing his application at the Groundbreaker Hub on Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. PT.

Code One Community Keynote 

The Code One Community Keynote will bring a smile to the gamers in the crowd. The September 18 keynote will kick off the day’s festivities and be lead by Vincent Mayers, Senior Manager, Developer Community Programs and Advocacy at Oracle. Vincent will walk us through Innovations in gaming and software development and discuss how the two have gone hand-in-hand since computing’s infancy. In this keynote take a journey from 2D 8-bit games written in Assembler to cloud-deployed MMORPGs and see some fun demos along the way. There will also be special cameos from the likes of Packmen, Annoyed Bird, Uber Mario and MineDraft.


What Else is on the Docket for Code One?

Throughout the week of Code One, developers are invited to come, learn, experiment and build with us. You can meet experts on Java, GraalVM, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Linux and more or choose to sit in on any of the 50+ Hands-on-Lab sessions, as well as the drop-in labs (bite-sized chunks to help you get hand's-on with new Cloud technologies). Attendees are also welcome to crash and recharge at the Groundbreakers Hub during the event and interact with a number of cool demos and experiences, including a Raspberry Pi Super Computer, IoT Augmented Reality Manufacturing, the Groundbreakers Retro Arcade, the return of the very popular “Blockchain Beer”, the very cool Code Card, and our Groundbreaker Escape Room.


Some other attractions you’ll want to check out while at Code One include our evening Unconference events on Monday and Tuesday evening and our Wednesday morning Diversity Power Hour session. You can find more information on each below:

  • Monday and Tuesday Unconference Events - Have a problem that needs solving? Suggest it as a topic! Have you figured out the key to a happy work and life balance? Suggest it as a topic! This is your chance to share and participate in conversations in a loosely structured environment with some of the best and brightest minds in the business. There will be plenty of great food, drinks and conversation to go around on Monday and Tuesday evening between 7 – 10 p.m. at Moscone South, Level 3. This is open to both full conference and discover attendees. Save your spot in the content catalog.
  • Wednesday Diversity Power Hour -Head to the Groundbreakers Hub at 10:30 am on Wednesday for our Diversity Power Hour. We will have special giveaways, panel discussions at the Groundbreakers Live stage, and sweet treats. Join us as we celebrate all of the communities that shape our tech landscape.

Over the next year, Oracle will host numerous events around the world to connect with and educate developers with workshops, sessions and keynotes featuring prominent experts. To learn more about Oracle Developer Events, please visit: https://developer.oracle.com/events


We look forward to seeing you at Code One this year! There’s still time to register for the event here and if you have any questions about any of the keynotes, sessions or side activities, or would like to be briefed on any of the news going live during Code One, please contact Travis Anderson at travis.j.anderson@oracle.com
