Yep, I’m going to be at Oracle Open World next week. It’s way bigger than JavaOne, they tell me; the mind boggles.
I’ll arrive in time for the Sun-heavy stuff on Sunday evening, then I’m on the Oracle Develop program, speaking Monday morning at 10:15 with Craig McClanahan and Toby Ford of AT&T, on Cloud Stuff at the Hilton. Craig and Toby are both impressive guys, so I suspect the entertainment value will be high.
I’ll be there through Wednesday, focusing on gossip, booze, clouds, concurrency, but mostly to try to get to know some more people. There’s a bloggers’ meet-up! I’ll be the guy in a hat with a camera.
The future remains pretty opaque. But with luck, not for long.
