Downloading Older OpenWorld Presentations

[Nov 2, 2009 Update: It appears that the links below aren't working. It's unclear whether this is a temporary suspension or whether they're permanently gone. If you're looking for specific OpenWorld session materials, I would recommend contacting the session author directly for their presentations.] Oracle OpenWorld red logo

Over the years, this blog's readership has proven that you're paying close attention to even the smallest details posted here.  This keeps me sharp.  I wouldn't want eidetic memory, but something better than my current wetware storage and retrieval system would be nice.  As part of my fact-checking for a recent blog article that touched on Oracle's own E-Business Suite global single instance, I was hunting around for an OpenWorld 2008 presentation to verify some vaguely-remembered details about hardware model numbers.  Much frustration ensued.

It turns out that getting one's hands on OpenWorld presentations can be a bit tricky.  If you were an OpenWorld attendee, you had the dubious privilege of purchasing all of the presentation materials on a DVD kit.  I don't think I will ever understand the marketing mindset.

Thankfully, you can still download individual OpenWorld presentations from the online session catalogs for the previous two years.  If you're looking for presentations from previous conferences, bookmark these two links:

These links don't appear to be valid anymore. Is there a new location? Also, what about OpenWorld 2009 presentations. Are they available anywhere yet? Thanks

Hi, Colin,

It appears that the links to the two older OpenWorld content catalogs above aren't working. It's unclear whether this is a temporary suspension or whether they're permanently gone. It can't hurt to continue to retry those links periodically. In the meantime, if you're looking for specific OpenWorld session materials, I would recommend contacting the session authors directly for their presentations.

Regards,
Steven

I think they have moved the content to this site :
http://openworldXXXX.vportal.net
where "XXXX" is 2008, 2009, 2010 for the open worlds of the past years ...
you might have to register on the site as well.
