Welcome to the world's largest gathering of Oracle customers, partners, and technologists. Get ready for a whirlwind of activities this week, including opportunities to meet industry experts, business leaders, and innovators from around the world. New this year is JavaOne, which is running concurrently with Oracle OpenWorld and Oracle Develop. Don't miss the excitement at the Zone--the Hotel Nikko, Hilton San Francisco, and Parc 55 Hotel--the coolest neighborhood for the JavaOne and Oracle Develop communities.
Oracle OpenWorld 2010 features more than 1,800 sessions, 400 partner exhibits, and nearly 400 live Oracle demos. Take this opportunity to hear from executives about Oracle's strategy and roadmap, as well as meet with the experts who are creating the products.
Oracle's recent acquisition of Sun brings an exciting new dimension to Oracle OpenWorld, and new opportunities for Oracle customers. This year, Oracle OpenWorld sessions are divided into five streams that cover the full breadth of Oracle's products and services. Along with applications, database, industries, and middleware sessions, for the first time there are also sessions devoted to server and storage systems.
If you're an Oracle partner or a prospective partner, don't miss today's Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum and its special activities, sessions, and networking events. Today also features the Oracle Users Forum, a full day of networking and learning with sessions developed by Oracle users, for Oracle users. New this year is MySQL Sunday, a half-day technical conference devoted to the latest technological and community developments related to MySQL.
Whatever you do, don't miss this evening's important keynotes by Larry Ellison and other top executives from both Oracle and HP. And finally, to cap off the day, head to the Howard Street Tent and Yerba Buena Gardens for the Welcome Reception, sponsored by Fujitsu.
