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!
