Conference Preview, Thursday Highlights
By stephen.fox on Oct 14, 2009
Wrapping Things UpTomorrow's the last day of Oracle OpenWorld and your last chance to squeeze just a little more learning and a little more networking out of the conference. We'd also like to know what you think about this year's event and how we can make next year's conference—dare we say it—even better.
Thursday is an excellent chance to stop by the places you may have missed during the rest of the show. Head to the Oracle Support Stars Bar in Moscone West, Level 2, to get answers about your Oracle applications, database, management and infrastructure, and middleware. While you're there, take advantage of your 20% discount in the Oracle OpenWorld Bookstore in the opposite end of the Level 2 lobby.
Increasing efficiency has been a hot topic these past few days. Here are some sessions about how to make your life that much easier once you're back at work.
- Resolve Issues Faster with My Oracle Support and Oracle Enterprise Manager, 10:30 a.m., Moscone South, Room 307 (S308076)
- Next-Generation Database Patch Automation: Get Your Life Back!, 10:30 a.m. Moscone South, Room 104 (S308122)
- Oracle Patching and Maintenance: A Practical Guide for System Administrators, 1:30 p.m. Moscone South, Room 301 (S311534)
At the end of the day, help us close out Oracle OpenWorld 2009 at the annual It's a Wrap! party. Please note that we've moved the event into the Howard Street Tent, but we haven't changed the entertainment. Back by popular demand again this year are Bay Area indie rock band The Five Hundreds. The event starts at 4 p.m. Stick around—you'll be glad you did.
