Oracle OpenWorld 2012 – Bloggers Meetup

Posted in: Technical Track

Oracle OpenWorld Bloggers Meetup Oracle OpenWorld 2012 is just over a month away, and yes, we are organizing the Annual Oracle Bloggers Meetup — one of your top favorite events of OpenWorld.

What: Oracle Bloggers Meetup 2012

When: Wed, 3-Oct-2012, 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 coming — we need to know the attendance numbers.


Traditionally, Oracle Technology Network joins Pythian sponsoring the venue and drinks.

As usual, vintage t-shirts from previous meetups will make you look cool — feel free to wear them. This year’s activity is still being planned — we have lots of cool ideas and can’t decide which one is the coolest. If you have something interesting in mind, let me know privately {last_name} at pythian.com. There will also be some cool swag for the blogger.

For those of you who don’t know the history… The Bloggers Meetups during Oracle OpenWorld were started by Mark Rittman and continued by Eddie Awad, and then I picked up the flag in 2009. The meetups have been a great success 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 last year’s meetup blog post update from myself.

While the initial meetings were mostly around Oracle database folks, the latest meetups are joined buy guys and gals from lots of Oracle technologies – Oracle database, MySQL, Applications, Sun technologies, Java, and more. All bloggers are welcome. This year we expect large attendance from the APEX meet up group as well. We estimate to gather around 150 bloggers.

See the results of last 2010 year’s meetup here and here. Follow all the links.

If you are planning to attend, please comment here with the phrase “COUNT ME IN”. This will help us make sure we have the attendance numbers right. Make sure you provide your blog URL with your comment — it’s a Bloggers Meetup after all! Make sure you comment here if you are attending so that we have enough room, food, and (most importantly) drinks. Last year we barely fit. Again, we are reserving a bigger room, but we want to make sure we can fit everyone!

Of course, do not under any circumstances forget to blog and tweet about this year’s bloggers meetup.

Speaking about blogging… The winner of last year’s competition on the best and most creative coverage introducing the most bloggers met at the meetup is… drum roll please… Bjoern Rost with the #oow11 blogger meetup blog post:

Looking forward to seeing even more of you again this year!
