Oracle OpenWorld also known as OOW or (#oow10 on twitter) starts on Sunday and this year it’s going to be bigger than ever given it includes Java One. Up until about a year ago I lived within walking distance of the moscone conference centre so felt very much in the thick of the action. Now I have moved down the 101 within walking distance Oracle HQ, I feel quite far away from it. It’s not as easy to pop out, meet friends and colleagues and meet new and interesting people. However I will be there Monday and Wednesday on the demo grounds – which really is the sharp end of the conference, drop by and see me and I will show you what I’ve been working on recently. Mention this blog and you get to see me slightly embarrassed.
