OOW Oct 11-14 2009 & Aerosmith

Oracle Open World is a pretty big deal in San Francisco every year in October. Oracle is one of the world's largest software companies and every year they host a technical event brining in 40-50 thousand IT developers from around the world to learn about the latest offerings from Oracle and to learn from each other. I went on behalf of my company and was part of a few technical sessions even though I am not really an uber technical person ... but I do depend very heavily on the success of Oracle products on my job so they invite me to share my experiences.

Every year Oracle holds a customer appreciation night where they bring in entertainment and this year was no different. Oracle rented out an outdoor venue for 30,000 people on Wednesday night (Oct 14th) on Treasure Island in the SF Bay. Very cool! They led off with Aerosmith and then followed with Roger Daltry, The Wailers, and closed with Three Dog Night. It was a very nice way to end a four day conference ... I'd been there since the conference started on sunday morning.

All for now
