We're throwing a party, and you're invited.
On November 9th, we're holding the Oracle Solaris 11 launch event
at Gotham Hall on Broadway in New York City. It should not only be a
lot of fun, but we're bringing our engineers, our execs, and some cool
software and hardware, so it's a chance to learn even more about what
we've been doing, and get a jump on the latest release of the #1
Register now --- space is limited, and you don't want to miss this event. It's been literally years in the making.
I'm a West Coast kind of guy, so I hadn't heard of Gotham Hall before. With a name like that, my mind naturally wandered to caped superheroes making their entrance by crashing through ornate skylights.
Well, guess what? There's an ornate skylight!
"In the center of the unique gold-leaf honeycombed design sits a one-of-a-kind 3,000 square foot stained-glass skylight."
"The regal granite walls and delicate stained-glass skylight are softened and warmed by the glow of the gold-leaf dome providing an extraordinary experience that leaves you and your guests breathless."
So that sounds pretty awesome right there. But I checked with our
event planners, and they said the contract specifically forbids crashing
through the ornate skylight. (Apparently, they've been asked before.)
But if your mind is more focused on 21st century enterprise infrastructure architecture than historic architecture, this is still the place to go. Come sit down and have lunch with the Oracle Solaris 11 team.
If you're not in the area, you can register for the webcast, too. But you'll have to supply your own food.
