Two OTN Events in NYC: Cloud Computing and Big Data

Two Oracle Technology Network events coming up next week in New York City will answer several critical questions for architects and developers. One question is, "Where can I get a couple of free meals?" Another question is, "Where can I learn more about Cloud Computing and Big Data and sharpen my skills in hands-on labs focused on relevant Oracle technologies?"

OTN has the solution for both your belly and your brain.

On Tuesday May 7 OTN Developer Day: Cloud Application Development will bring you up to speed on Oracle Cloud services for developers with an agenda that includes intensive hands-on labs in two parallel tracks, one for those interested in developing with the Oracle Database Cloud Service, and one for those interested in developing with the Oracle Java Cloud Service. Seating for this free event is limited, and pre-registration is required. Register now.

Two days later, on Thursday May 9, OTN Developer Day: Big Data will offer yet another opportunity for free breakfast and lunch along and a schedule that includes four hands-on labs focused on Oracle NoSQL Database, MapReduce, Hadoop, Oracle Database, and Oracle Advanced Analytics. Seating for this event is also limited, but you can register now to insure your spot.

Visit the registration pages for each event for session abstracts and other important information.
