Oracle OpenWorld 2017 officially kicks off on Sunday, October 1, with a host of customer- and Oracle-led sessions designed to help you get the most out of your Oracle investments. Here are the top reasons you should attend and learn from Oracle’s growing user community ahead Larry Ellison’s keynote at 5:00 pm.

1. Learn how to optimize your existing Oracle investments

This year’s expanded Sunday program will feature education focused on various paths to cloud that customers have taken. This includes optimizing existing on-premise solutions, as well as modernizing and extending their value through Oracle Cloud solutions. Hear from over 120 customers and over 50 Oracle leaders on how you can increase agility, innovation, and user adoption. Sessions will run from 9:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Moscone South and the Marriott Marquis. Browse the content catalog to see all Sunday sessions!

2. Engage with your peers

The majority of Sunday sessions are delivered by members of Oracle’s independent user group community. User groups accelerate value realization and customer success through ongoing engagement, education, and experience sharing. Their communities thrive on networks and knowledge, sharing the latest best practices in technology, and providing the functional guidance needed to help you succeed in today’s increasingly dynamic environment. For additional information about Oracle user groups, visit the user group kiosk Monday thru Wednesday in the Community and Services area at The Exchange in Moscone South.

3. Step up to modern Cloud development at Community Day at JavaOne

User groups play a large role in JavaOne’s Developer Community Day, a full day of content by and for developers. Java user groups will be delivering 21 technical and community sessions as part of Developer Community Day. Come learn how you can be part of the thriving Java ecosystem and benefit from engaging in the largest technology community in the world. These sessions take place from 10:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. at Moscone West. Learn more about more than 200 Java user groups around the world.
