Database Upgrades at OpenWorld 2011

The annual Oracle Openworld conference will be October 2-6, 2011 in San Francisco. If you’ve never been to OpenWorld, it’s a great place to get all kinds of information about your database, applications, hardware, and OS. Sessions range from customer case studies to technical hands-on labs. And of course all the Oracle development teams will have a presence on the demo floor, so that you can ask questions and get insight into the latest features.

OpenWorld 2011 in San Francisco, October 2-6

Some folks are also interested in what goes on after the close of each day (this year we’ll have Sting, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, for the big Appreciation Event on Wednesday).

OpenWorld always ends up combining a wealth of useful information with a good time. Here’s a sample of the Database Upgrade sessions you will find at OpenWorld 2011. We hope to see you there!
