Guide to Your First OpenWorld

Meg Hall
Product Marketing Manager

If this is your first OpenWorld – congratulations! You are about to attend one of the biggest technology events the SF Bay has to offer. At OpenWorld, technology and business professionals come together to solve problems, learn about the latest product innovations and road maps, and get inspired. By purchasing an all-inclusive conference pass, attendees of this year’s event get access to more than 2,000 educational sessions, including main-stage and product keynotes, product training and certifications, tutorials on emerging technologies, meet-ups with product experts, and peer-to-peer networking opportunities. 

OpenWorld Events

Alongside Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle will be hosting three companion events in San Francisco: Oracle Code One, to be held at Moscone West, expands on the JavaOne developer events of past years to include more languages, technologies, and developer communities, while keeping the deep Java technical content for which it’s long been known.


All Oracle OpenWorld attendees are invited to an evening of first-class entertainment at AT&T Park on Wednesday evening, October 24, when singer/songwriter Beck; rock band Portugal. The Man; and American indie pop act Bleachers will perform. The entertainment will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end late—plenty of food and refreshments will be on hand.
