Oaktable World 2016

Anyone who’s anyone knows to search out OakTable World at major events in the US and Europe, and Oracle Open World 2016 is no different!

OakTable World 2016, (#otw16) will be held at the Children’s Creativity Museum again this year during the week of Oracle Open World.  The Oak Table members will be discussing their latest technical obsessions and research on Monday and Tuesday, (September 19th-20th).  The truth is, folks-  The Oak Table experts are an AWESOME group, (if I don’t say so myself! :)) as we could have easily done another day of incredible sessions, but alas, two days is all we have available for this year’s event.

This year’s sponsors to make sure the Oakies have a place to rest their weary laptops are no slouches themselves in the technical world:



The Great Dane

Mogens Norgaard will be opening Oak Table World on Monday, at 8:30am.  Be prepared to be awe-inspired by all he has to share with you, (which may go hand-in-hand with the amount of coffee we can provide to him…)

Location, Location, Location

If you’re unsure of how to get to Oak Table World, I’ve included a map below of San Francisco’s Moscone Center, where Oracle Open World will be.  OTW will be held in the Creativity Theater, which is in the museum behind the carousel, around the Southeast side of the building.


Oak Table World is FREE to the PUBLIC!  We don’t require an Oracle Open World badge to attend, so bring a friend and they’ll owe you big time!  We will be taking guest information at the door to keep in compliance with the free beer tasting...


Food + Beer, Yes, I SAID BEER

So currently, instead of the formal breakfast and lunch that's been previously offered, we're going to try something more..."Oakie" and crowd friendly.  As the Executive Goth Girl, (my own designation) I am going for good coffee and awesome donuts in the mornings to fuel the attendees.  As lunch is offered with registration to OOW for 90%, (or more) of our participants, I'm spending money that would go to lunch and following the requirements for an event per the ABC, (Alcohol and Beverage Control of California) we'll be having beer tasting from some of the local breweries.  We'll have some fantastic munchies if you get hungry, but as we all know, beer is really a carb.  You can thank me later... :)

Video Streaming

For those of you wondering if we’ll be doing any recordings of the sessions-  OTN and Laura Ramsey have agreed to do the live streaming for the event, (because they ROCK!!) so be prepared for some seriously impressive content streaming your way from their channel after the event if you’re unable to attend.
