3 days of highly enriching sessions in Oracle Open World 2010 is keeping me occupied in San Francisco. Most of the sessions ending or beginning with Security, Scalability, Performance were sold out. It was tough to get seats for these sessions. Apart from attending Larry Ellison’s Keynote, I attended many sessions. I am listing a few of them here, and once I am back in India I am planning to blog about other sessions in detail on my architecture blog
1. Hadoop vs. Relational Database: Shout-out Between a Java Guy and a Database Guy. This session focused on few tips around choosing Hadoop and when to choose RDBMS. Very interesting session
2. Mission Critical Enterprise Cloud Application
3. Journey to the center of Java Universe
4. Keeping your options open even if the cloud is not
and many more…
Nearly 41,000 developers from all over the world participated in this event and as part of appreciation, Oracle had organized the Rock concert. I enjoyed listening to Don Henley and Black eyed Peas before heading back to the hotel late night.
