OpenWorld 2016

In a matter of days, customers, partners, employees... and everyone else related to the Oracle ecosystem will converge on San Francisco for the 2016 edition of the Oracle OpenWorld conference. This is by far the most comprehensive Oracle conference of the year, covering both applications and technology. I am really looking forward to attending this year as an Oracle partner. Since I won't be working the Oracle demo grounds, please feel free to stop me anytime, anywhere to start an impromptu conversation. Don't hesitate. My goal is to talk to as many people as possible, so you will be doing me a favor by saying "Hello."

Like many of you, I have been searching the content catalog for all of my favorite search terms: Fluid, PeopleTools, Jeff Robbins, Graham Smith, Sasank Vemana, David Bain, JavaScript, and Oracle JET... there is a lot of great content this year. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of really great overlapping sessions. In fact, the famous Graham Smith from Cedar Consulting will be presenting at the exact same time as his wife Jo, but in a different room (Sorry Graham, I am planning to attend your wife's session).

For PeopleTools-minded individuals, the conference starts early on Sunday with Sasank's Life Hacks for PeopleSoft Development [UGF2499]. Sasank's sessions are always worth attending.

With all that is going on at OpenWorld this year, I do hope you will leave room in your schedule to attend my session on Monday at 4:15PM in Moscone West 2024. I will be presenting Getting the Most Out of PeopleSoft: PeopleSoft PeopleTools Tips and Techniques [CON7070]. I have a lot of great content planned including new, under-publicized PeopleTools 8.55 features, fluid tips, and Oracle JET. As always, I expect to give away a few copies of my books as well (remind me if I forget).

The OpenWorld bookstore is another one of my favorite places to visit during the OpenWorld conference. Oracle Press will be there with copies of all three of my books. Each year the bookstore sells these books at a discount. If you purchase a copy, look for me in Moscone West. I would be happy to sign your book for you.

See you soon!
