For anyone who has never attended a San Francisco Oracle Open World you really should go at some point. The city is beautiful and the event well organized if a little on the chaotic side.
I have been lucky enough to attend quite a few of them over the last 10 years but missed out last year and also will be missing out this year.
It has been just once that one of my presentation abstracts was accepted out there. I applied this year with two of what I think are quite good presentations but well no dice.
I have a free pass for the conference ( thanks Oracle Ace program ) but work is not willing to give me time off to attend this year and also not willing therefore to help pay for it. I could take vacation off to attend but well it is very expensive and I need the time off that I do have for other things.
Have fun anyone that does make it out there! Maybe I will make it to OOW 2015?
