Open World - Latin Style
By jasonw on Mar 11, 2009
Greetings from Open World Brazil
Boa tarde de Sao Paulo.
I'm just finishing up my trip to Brazil and I'm sitting in the Airport ready to head back to the states. I have to say this year was quite a great event. I was a little uncertain as to the attendance numbers given the current financial climate, but it seemed bigger than 2007.

It was great to reconnect with my PTS (and ex-PTS) brethren. I even spotted the famous blogger (and ex-PTS buddy) Juan Ruiz, from the JDev team.
We had some great opportunities to show of new Oracle Technologies and discuss solutions around Legacy Modernization.

We had some successful sessions talking about Oracle Modernization and the Application Modernization Initiative
. Here we discribed some success stories with Mainframe Integration, Rehosting and Re-architecture of legacy mainframe system to the Oracle stack.
It was tough to meet everyone, and all of the customers, but I would say it was a good event. Well worth the 12hr journey from Raleigh, NC.
Anyway, time to board.
