Monday Roundup: #OPNX13 Sessions, Test Fest and the Rest

Whew—what an afternoon! We’re live at the OPN Lounge in Moscone South, and it’s busy down here. Looks like partners are off to a bright start following last night’s AfterDark reception.

On that, another big congratulations and thanks to our partner award winners from North America, EMEA, Latin America, and APAC and Japan.

Last Call

Okay, here is the scoop partners. If you haven't had a chance to unwind from all this Oracle OpenWorld madness or simply need a place to host a meeting, please come visit us at the OPN Lounge at Moscone South, Room 100. We will be here today, Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Week 41: Trick-or-Treat

It's that time of the year when the candy corn induced sugar high leads to costume creativity and you are rocking out so hard to "Thriller" that you're not sure if you want a trick or a treat. While you ponder your 'best costume ever' we thought we would share what is sure to be a treat - a recap of the Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum at OpenWorld.

  • Over 2000 partners from around the globe joined us live in San Francisco for the OPN Forum - see what you missed here.
  • Nearly 75 of you that braved the 6:00 AM Partner Fun Run.
  • Partners got down to business conducting over 300 hours of meetings in the OPN Lounge.

The Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum was a great event, and we are looking forward to even more networking opportunities at Oracle OpenWorld Latin America and Oracle OpenWorld Beijing in December. Until then, take a look at some of our favorite moments from the OPN Forum.

Week 37: Backstage Pass

When it comes to Oracle OpenWorld it's all about the passes - conference passes, party passes, lunch passes - so we thought we would give you a backstage pass to the Oracle PartnerNetwork Forum Keynote. Listen in as we hear from Judson his thoughts on the days events:

If you missed the Forum - and the announcement of Advanced Specializations and Diamond Level - you'll be able to catch the event on-demand in the next couple of days. If you're at Oracle OpenWorld stop by the OPN Lounge; tell us what you think in the video blogging room, meet with the Partner Business Center or just say hello.

We'll be in touch soon,
The OPN Communications Team
