For the third year in a row at the same fantastic location right in the heart of the bustling Oracle OpenWorld 2014 extravaganza, OakTable World 2014 is bringing together the top geeks of the worldwide Oracle community to present on the topics not approved for the OpenWorld conference.  At the OpenWorld conference.  For free.

The beauty of this unconference is its ad-hoc nature.  In 2010, weary of flying from Europe to endure marketing-rich content, Mogens Norgaard conceived Oracle ClosedWorld as an informal venue for those who wanted to talk about cool deep-technical topics.  Oracle ClosedWorld was first held in the back dining room at Chevy’s Fresh Mex on 3rd and Howard, fueled by Mogens’ credit card holding an open tab.  The following year in 2011, ClosedWorld was moved a little ways down Howard Street to the upstairs room at the Thirsty Bear, once again fueled by Mogens’ (and other) credit cards keeping a tab open at the bar.

In 2012, Kyle Hailey took the lead, found a fantastic venue, herded all the cats to make a 2-day agenda, and arranged for corporate sponsorship from Delphix, Pythian, and Enkitec, who have continued to sponsor OakTable World each year since.

If you’re coming to Oracle OpenWorld 2014 and are hungry for good deep technical content, stop by at OakTable World 2014, located right between Moscone South and Moscone West, and get your mojo recharged.

If you’re local to the Bay Area but can’t afford Oracle OpenWorld, and you like deep technical stuff about Oracle database, stop by and enjoy the electricity of the largest Oracle conference in the world, and the best Oracle unconference right in the heart of it all.

OakTable World 2014 – driven by the OakTable Network, an informal society of drinkers with an Oracle problem.
