Become an Oracle OpenWorld Superdelegate
Had enough of the U.S. primaries? Ready to vote and make it count? Then you've come to the right place. Today I'm going to show you how you can tell us what sessions you would like to attend at Oracle OpenWorld, or even propose a session to present yourself.
We recently went live with a new Oracle Mix feature that allows you to suggest and vote on sessions. The top vote-getters will be presented live at Oracle OpenWorld and we've already received more than 100 great ideas.
To get involved, go to the Vote for a Session page to see what ideas your colleagues have already proposed. Click the Latest Sessions tab to see their most recent suggestions. Click the Greatest Sessions tab to find out which proposals are most popular so far.
Don't see your favorite topic on the list? Then it's time to nominate a new session. Simply go to the Oracle Mix Suggest a Session page and follow the instructions there. Tell us whom you want to present the session you or someone else. Describe your topic in as much detail as necessary to make your vision come to life. And assign tags, so others can easily find and vote on your session.
Our current frontrunner is Doing 2.0 in the Enterprise: Lessons Learned, Tips, and Tricks. Other leading candidates to date are sessions on BEA AquaLogic and Oracle Fusion Middleware, getting back to basics with database Web services, and becoming an Oracle Ace. Don't hesitate to vote or throw your hat in the ring. The deadline to submit ideas is June 30, and voting closes on July 13.
Of course, the only way to enjoy all the great new sessions is to join us at the conference, so register now to get the best early bird rates. In the meantime, be sure to check back often for new posts on attendee feedback from 2007, staying connected at Oracle OpenWorld 2008 with Twitter, and how this year's event is going green.
