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!- The OTN Team

OTN Lounge (Howard St. Tent)
Open: 8am-7pm Mon/Tues, 8am-6pm Weds, and 9am-2pm Thurs
For the third year in a row you'll find the OTN Lounge in a new place, but this time it's the best location we've ever had: In the Howard St. Tent, right in front of the Moscone South building entrance. You can't miss us!
As usual, the OTN Lounge is your home away from home at Oracle OpenWorld. Charge up on coffee in the morning (8-10am Mon.-Weds.) and beer and Red Bull late in the day (4-7pm on Mon.-Tues., 4-6pm on Weds.). You'll also find comfy furniture, laptop power, and a whole lot of schwag - from free software, to t-shirts, to flair. Furthermore: we'll be doing live interviews with Oracle engineers and technical executives like Wim Coekaerts, Mike Hichwa, and Sushil Kumar (covering Oracle Database, Fusion Middleware, and Systems/Storage) from our own stage, and hosting interactive "power hours" with Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware product managers. It's a feast for the brain!
(Special treat for Oracle RAC fans: Kick back at the OTN Lounge between 9am and 1pm each day of the show with experts from the IOUG RAC SIG, and work together to get an Oracle RAC cluster database running inside virtual machines on your own laptops.)
Speaking of feasts:
OTN Night (Mon. at 730pm, Yerba Buena Gardens)
OTN Night, always the fiercest party at Oracle OpenWorld, will be on fire this year: literally! We've taken the Burning Man festival as our inspiration, so that means a panoply of food, drink, and visual and aural entertainment you are not likely to have seen before. Prepare to be amazed!
We look forward to seeing you at one or both places the week of Oracle OpenWorld.
JavaOne Full Conference attendees also have access to both the OTN Lounge and OTN Night, and in fact the OTN team will be the heart and soul of the Community Hub at that conference. But that's a post for another day. :)
