Break New Ground

Special Activities in the OTN Lounge

Bob Rhubart
Community Manager, Oracle Groundbreakers Team

What is the OTN Lounge? It's the place for Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne attendees to hang out, get off your feet, rest up between sessions, recharge your laptop, tablet, or phone, connect with other community members, pick the brains of subject matter experts and community leaders, enjoy some refreshments (coffee and soft drinks in the morning, beer in the afternoon), and avoid the crowds by watching keynote presentations on a plasma screen.

But in addition to general chillaxin' the OTN Lounge also hosts several special activities throughout the week…
