Yesterday, I told you about the Oracle Social Network Developer Challenge we’ll be hosting at OpenWorld (@oracleopenworld) next week. If you’re attending OpenWorld or JavaOne (@javaoneconf) and want to get hands-on experience with Oracle Social Network and show off your coding chops, this is the event for you.

Go ahead and register. I’ll wait.

But wait, there’s more.

If you’re not sure you’ll have the time for the Challenge, don’t want to embarrass anyone with your awesome skills, have a hectic schedule and can’t commit, or just want to learn more about Oracle Social Network and how to extend it, then the Oracle Social Network Technical Tour is for you.

Oracle OpenWorld Preview: Oracle Social Network Developer Challenge

Noel (@noelportugal) and I have been working on something new for OpenWorld (@oracleopenworld) for quite some time, and today, I got the final approvals to go ahead with the Oracle Social Network Developer Challenge.

The skinny.

The Challenge is a modified hackathon, designed to run during OpenWorld and JavaOne (@javaoneconf), and attendees of both conferences are welcome to join and compete for the single prize of $500 in Amazon gift cards.

There’s only one prize, so bring your A-game.

The Challenge begins Sunday, September 30 at 7 PM and ends Wednesday, October 3 at 4 PM.

You can and should register now, but we won’t begin approving  registrations until Sunday at 7 PM. For legal reasons, you’ll need to register with a corporate email address, not a free webmail one, e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, ISP-provided mail, etc. If you work for a competitor of Oracle, sorry but you’re not eligible.

Everything you need is in the cloud, including support, but if you need help or have questions, visit office hours in the OTN Lounge in the Howard Street tent Monday, October 1 and Tuesday, October 2 4-8 PM to get help from the product team.

The judging begins Wednesday, October 3 at 4 PM. To be considered for the prize, you’ll need to attend to demo your working code to the judges.

Attendees with badges from either OpenWorld or JavaOne are welcome in the OTN Lounge, so you’ll need one of those too.

Did I mention, register now?

Be sure to check out Jake's original post for the long-winded explanations.

Oracle OpenWorld Preview: JavaOne Social Developer Program

The program runs from 10 AM to 3:30 PM on Tuesday, October 2 at the San Francisco Hilton and features speakers from Oracle, Bit.ly, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Sociable Labs. The focus is on the emergence of social within the enterprise and ends with a hackathon.

That last bit got your attention? Thought it might. Here’s the skinny:

In this session the staff of the Oracle Social Developer Lab will present some social development tools that make integrating social functionality into your apps easier to achieve. This session kicks off a week-long hack to build an application using OSDL code. A winner will be selected and profiled in Java Magazine.

I don’t have any more details on the prize, which is sure to be epic, so you’ll just have to attend the program. In the meantime, check out their Facebook page for more information.

See you in San Francisco.

    Oracle Music Festival

    his year, the first-ever Oracle Music Festival will debut, running from September 30 to October 4. In the tradition of great live music events like Coachella and SXSW, the streets of San Francisco—from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. for five nights-into-days—will vibrate with the music of some of today’s hottest name acts, emerging and local bands, and scratching DJs.

    Outdoor venues and clubs near Moscone Center and the Zone (including 111 Minna, DNA, Mezzanine, Roe, Ruby Skye, Slim’s, the Taylor Street Café, Temple, Union Square, and Yerba Buena Gardens) will showcase acts that range from reggae to rock, punk to ska, R&B to country, indie to honky-tonk. After a full day of sessions and networking, you'll be primed for some late-night relaxation and rocking out at one or more of these sets.  Please note that with awesome acts, thousands of music devotees, and a limited number of venues each night, access to Festival events is on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Join us at the Oracle Music Festival--it's going to be epic!

    137 Tweets about #OOW11 and #WebCenter

    I'll use the Wayback Machine!What better way to take a look back at Oracle OpenWorld 2011 than to turn back the clock and see what was being tweeted about during the early October days of Oracle OpenWorld? Unfortunately, Twitter doesn’t provide historical tweets and neither does the Wayback Machine at the internet archive. I found it interesting in my discovery process that there aren’t many historical Twitter Search tools available for free out there. Thus, I have to give a shout-out to TOPSY for their great tool for “Real-time search for the social web”.

    To make this post tolerable, I couldn’t really cover the full breadth of 13,991 tweets about #OOW11 between 09/30/2011 and 10/08/2011. Instead, I applied our personal bias here with another filter to only present the 137 tweets about #OOW11 and #WebCenter. Following the various links in each post will give you an interesting view of retweets and the path each of these posts traveled. We have to say big THANKS! to all our partners and customers that were spreading the word on great WebCenter sessions.

    Don’t forget that all presentations and videos from Oracle Open World are available. If you missed any of the keynotes or sessions, you can catch the replays on YouTube.com/Oracle, and download presentations from Content Catalog or watch the best of Oracle OpenWorld 2011 on the Oracle Media Network.

    Introducing Oracle Public Cloud at Oracle Open World 2011

    By Sandeep Banerjie

    Larry Ellison announced the Oracle Public Cloud yesterday! For those of you who missed this exciting announcement live, let us quickly summarize it for you:

    The Oracle Public Cloud is a suite of Oracle applications, middleware and database offerings delivered in a self-service, subscription-based, elastically scalable, reliable, highly available and secure manner. Oracle provides hosting, management, software updates, and world-class support for these offerings.

    The Oracle Public Cloud includes the following services:

    Application Services

    • Oracle Fusion CRM Cloud Service
    • Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service
    • Oracle Social Network Cloud Service

    Platform Services

    • Oracle Database Cloud Service
    • Oracle Java Cloud Service

    So what’s unique about Oracle Public Cloud?

    It is an enterprise cloud for business. It is an integrated suite of services spanning Oracle's complete portfolio based on open Java and SQL standards offering flexible cloud and on-premise deployment. The services offered in the cloud are based upon Oracle's complete portfolio of best-in-class solutions. They are fully integrated together so IT departments do not have to unify the solutions they buy, and the cloud provides an extensive array of timely and relevant 3rd party content to enrich applications. Applications can be built or extended using standards-based technology such as full Java EE applications and SQL. Organizations can deploy Java applications with no changes onto our cloud, customize Fusion Applications, and develop new custom applications. There is easy instant provisioning with a transparent, predictable pricing model that is based upon monthly subscriptions and consolidated billing. Additionally, applications and end users can move from Oracle Public Cloud to on premise and back. Finally, the cloud is based upon Exalogic and Exadata, offering superior reliability, performance, and elastic capacity.

    To learn more about Oracle Public Cloud and get a first hand view of the different cloud services, be sure to attend the “Oracle Powers the Cloud” day at Oracle OpenWorld on Oct 6 (Thursday). It’s going to be an action packed day with keynotes, 25+ cloud sessions, and 15+ demos. And off course you don’t want to miss “It’s a Wrap” closing party that day, featuring Berlin and the Five Hundreds! So if you are not already registered for this special day at Oracle OpenWorld, do that right away at: http://www.oracle.com/openworld/learn/cloud/index.html

    Be sure to attend the Oracle Public Cloud General Session repeated 3 times on Oct 6:

    “Power Your Cloud: An Enterprise Cloud for your Business Critical Applications”

    • 10:30 – 11:30am at Moscone South 307
    • 12:00 – 1:00pm at Moscone West 2005
    • 1:30 – 2:30pm at Moscone West 3022
