Bags packed, and headed out to San Francisco this October? Oracle Open World 2017 is starting up in a few days. This year expect more focus on Cloud technologies, especially self managing databases, and how machine learning can be used to better manage technology.
As in past years, I have several sessions, starting on Sunday, October 1st. If you looking for me, the best way to to find me after one of these sessions. I also will spend some time at the Fujitsu Booth, and Mythics booth in Moscone Center South Exhibition hall, as well as at the OTN and User Group spaces. Both booth locations are marked on the map.
