Oracle OpenWorld 2010
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in Oracle Corporation’s 2010 Conference named OpenWorld. The conference was held once again in downtown San Francisco, although it felt like the largest I’ve attended this year. Maybe it had to do with the inclusion of Sun Microsystems customers and technologies.
The conference this year took up all of the buildings which make up Moscone Center and tied up all of the hotel rooms in San Francisco and many surrounding communities. There were an estimated 40,000 attendees this year, not including the technology vendors, Oracle employees, spouses and significant others that attended simply because the conference was in San Francisco.
The conference provided the ability to experience the splendor of San Francisco’s hospitality. Amidst the learning, the luncheons, the events and after parties, the city, and surrounding areas, were bustling with inquisitive, excited and happy tourists. From the closing of selected streets, to the full bars and restaurants, it was an amazing week in the city.
I’ve included some images from a few of the events this week; I hope that you enjoy them.
These are from an event I attended at the SFMOMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art:
As you can see, it was a beautiful and clear evening…
These are from the Oracle Appreciation Event held on Treasure Island:
All in all, it was an amazing week, with so many highly technical people visiting the city and lots of technology discussions going on along with people out having a great time.
