I know there are a lot of Solaris veterans that still haven't experienced the enormousness that is Oracle OpenWorld. Simply put: if you have a chance to go, you should go. You'll learn a lot, and you'll be in one of the greatest cities in the world at the same time.
Even better: if you've got something to share, we might be able to get you in for free.
As a Solaris person, you'll probably be most interested in participating in one of two tracks:
All you need to give us right now is a title and an abstract. If your session is accepted, we'll let you know by early June, and you can start to plan to join us in San Francisco from September 30 to October 4.
(If you're planning on attending in listen-only mode, be aware that the early registration price is available until March 30.)
As is true every year, this is your opportunity to meet the leading Oracle hardware and software engineers, including lots of the Oracle Solaris team, and interact with your peers from all over the world. See you there!
