Oracle OpenWorld 2013 - A Community Perspective

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 enters the history books as another fantastic event. Between Oracle Team USA winning the America's Cup (on a boat stuffed full of Oracle technology), Oracle unveiling new technologies that support greater innovation, and all the action at JavaOne, it will be hard to beat. See Ace Director Danny Bryant's perspective on the event, and his experience connecting with Oracle DBAs and experts. Jason Arneil also reports on his 5th outing to OOW. If there is any event you must have on the calendar, it has to be Oracle OpenWorld, and Jeff Smith gives a great overview of why. 

Over the coming weeks, keep checking back to the Oracle OpenWorld Content Catalog where the presentations and additional content will be posted for attendees to access.  

Finally, a note of thanks for hanging out at the OTN Lounge. We had a great time meeting you all and hosting the developer challenges, presentations and meetups. Be sure to keep those Tweets and Comments coming!

Get it at the OTN Lounge: Oracle 12c Multitenant Pluggable Database App Stick

Oracle Multitenant, new with Oracle Database 12c, is a new architecture for consolidating databases and simplifying operations in the cloud. Your friends at the OTN Lounge are hosting Multitenant Installfests on Monday and Tuesday at 10:00 am where you will receive your very own Pluggable Database that contains the full set of Oracle Database Sample Schemas as well as APEX, which is pre-configured with both the APEX Demo application and a simple Sales Forecasting application. We've got this puppy set up to easily plug in to your environment of choice:  Windows, Oracle Linux, or if you'd prefer, you can use VBox VM.  

Jean-Francois Verrier will be in the OTN Lounge to walk you through the pluggable database process, and to tell you more about how the Multitenant features are a game changer.

We'll be talking a lot about Multitenant during Oracle OpenWorld 2013. Get your pluggable DB, load it, try it out...and be the first on your block to have a handle on it.

So drop by the OTN Lounge Monday or Tuesday at 10:00 AM ...we'll have your app stick waiting for you. (and maybe coffee and a doughnut too.)
