Many of you are coming to San Francisco next week for Oracle OpenWorld 2015 and many of you have already booked time on your calendars on Wednesday evening before the appreciation event. You are right — the Annual Oracle Bloggers Meetup, one of your favorite events of the OpenWorld, is happening at usual place and time!
What: Oracle Bloggers Meetup 2015.
When: Wed, 28-Oct-2015, 5:30pm.
Where: Main Dining Room, Jillian’s Billiards @ Metreon, 101 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 (street view). Please comment with “COUNT ME IN” if you’re coming — we need to know the attendance numbers.
As usual, Oracle Technology Network and Pythian sponsor the venue, drinks and cool fun social stuff. This year we are dropping a cool app and resurrecting traditions — you know what it means and if not, come and learn. All blogger community participants are invited — self qualify is what that means ;).
As usual, vintage t-shirts, ties, or bandanas from previous meetups will make you look cool — feel free to wear them.
For those of you who don’t know the history: The Bloggers Meetup during Oracle OpenWorld was started by Mark Rittman and continued by Eddie Awad, and then I picked up the flag in 2009. This year we have Oracle Technology Network taking more leadership on the organization of the event in addition to just being a “corporate sponsor”.
The meetups have been a great success for making new friends and catching up with the old, so let’s keep them this way! To give you an idea, here are the photos from the OOW08 Bloggers Meetup (courtesy of Eddie Awad) and OOW09 meetup blog post update from myself, and a super cool video by a good blogging friend, Bjorn Roest from OOW13.
While the initial meetings were mostly targeted to Oracle database folks, guys and gals from many Oracle technologies — Oracle database, MySQL, Apps, Sun technologies, Java and more join in the fun. All bloggers are welcome. Last year we crossed 150 attendees and I expect this year we may set a new record.
If you are planning to attend, please comment here with the phrase “COUNT ME IN”. This will help us ensure we have the attendance numbers right. Please provide your blog URL (or whatever you consider a replacement of that — I’ll leave it to your interpretation) with your comment — it’s a Bloggers Meetup after all! Please do make sure you comment here if you are attending so that we have enough room, food, and (most importantly) drinks.
Of course, do not forget to blog, tweet, linkedin, G+, instagram, email and just talk about this year’s bloggers meetup. See you there — it will be fun!
