OpenWorld 2008 – Did you vote?Posted: July 8, 2008
In a classic better-late-than-never move, I noticed that Oracle Mix site allows you to vote on Open World sessions. I should have noticed it before (say, in time to submit my own ideas!), because people mentioned it to me, but this just slipped through.
At least it was not too late to vote for interesting sessions. I was amazed by the number of sessions proposed. Lots of the sessions sound sexy and relevant. The best thing is that when looking through the sessions that appealed to me, I noticed that I don’t recognize many of the names. This is terrific, because as much as I enjoy hearing the usual gurus, sometimes I feel that after three conferences things begin to repeat themselves with same speakers and same topics all the time. I assume that this is because conference organizers prefer to stay on the safe side with well known gurus, but I really welcome the opportunity to hear some new voices in the Oracle community.
So if you didn’t vote yet, I recommend looking through the proposal lists. I bet you’ll find a few that you’ll want to vote for.
