Oracle OpenWorld 2016 – Bloggers Meetup

Posted in: Technical Track

Oracle OpenWorld Bloggers MeetupDON’T PANIC. Yes, we are doing the OOW Bloggers Meetup this year. Yes, it’s the same time. Yes, it’s the same location. Yes, it’s more fun every year.

What: Oracle Bloggers Meetup 2016.

When: Wed, 21-Sep-2016, 5:30pm.

Where: Main Dining Room, Jillian’s Billiards @ Metreon, 101 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 (street view). Yes, it’s a good time to try taking our blog down with DoS attack of “COUNT ME IN” comments below – if you’re coming, comment away!


As usual, Oracle Technology Network and Pythian sponsor the venue, drinks and cool fun social stuff. The competition is on — you know what that means (new unique “wearable” this year) and if not, come and learn. All blogger community participants are invited (self qualifying).

As usual, vintage t-shirts, ties, or bandanas from previous meetups will make you look extremely cool — feel free to wear them. The new wearable will be a nice addition to your collection!

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.

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.

All Oracle technologies — Oracle Database, MySQL, Apps, Sun technologies, Java and ALL THE CLOUD PEEPS — come and meet like-minded “techies”. All bloggers are welcome. We’ve reached 150 attendees in the last few years — maybe another record breaking gathering this year.

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 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 important) drinks.

And you can now fill your twitter feeds (linkedin, G+, instagram, mailing lists) by talking about how excited you are to attend, and talk about this year’s meetup with fellow bloggers you’ll meet at the show. See you all there — it will be fun!
