The weather is cooling down, it’s the season of pumpkins, football, and, most importantly, it’s time to get excited for Oracle Open World! There are so many amazing sessions and speakers this year. We wish we could see all of them. To help you narrow down the list of choices, Mia Urman, Oracle ACE Director and AuraPlayer CEO, complied a list her of Must-See Sessions.
Before I discuss Mia’s favorites, I will begin with ones I’m super eager to attend. I realize I’m a bit biased.
Sunday, Oct 25 | 2:30pm-3:15pm | Moscone South—274
Mia Urman, AuraPlayer
Am I the only one who is slightly overwhelmed and confused by the acronyms that have taken the technology world by storm? Paas, MAF, Alta UI, and more. Mia will define the terms and lingo needed to effectively converse in the mobile and cloud spheres. After this session, you will be prepared to talk to the pros and to attend other sessions at OOW. FYI, Mia won best speaker award for this session at Kscope 15!
- General Session: Mobile—the Heart of Digital Transformation
Monday, Oct 26| 11:00am-11:45am| Moscone South—102
o RimiBewtra, Senior Director, Product Marketing – Fusion Middleware, Oracle
o DyanGanepola, IT Director, NY MTA
o SuhasUliyar, Vice President Mobile Strategy Product Management, Oracle
o BalaVenkataraman, IT Director, Martin Marietta
Here at AuraPlayer, we are especially excited for this session. Suhas, the Vice President of Mobile Strategy, will be presenting our customer success story on our project with MTA (New York Bridges and Tunnels). He will be demoing MTA’s Oracle Forms Collision Reporting system running from Oracle Mobile Cloud and Oracle Mobile Framework. This is your chance to see AuraPlayer’s technology in action; Oracle Forms running from a Samsung tablet live on stage!
Now, here are Mia’s Must See Sessions in no particular order (they are all expected to be equally amazing):
Wednesday, Oct 28 | 11:00am- 11:45am|Moscone South—304

Meet the Experts is always a great way to find out about new products in the works and visions for upcoming development tools. I’m especially excited to see they are planning on discussing Oracle Forms, meaning there will be two sessions on Forms this year at OOW!

4. Oracle Mobile Cloud Service: Mobile Interaction Platform for Digital Strategy
Monday, Oct 26| 1:30pm- 2:15pm| Moscone South—270
Deb Ayers&Kaj Van de loo, Oracle
Is your head in the clouds? If yes, this session is for you. If not, you must go to see what your missing! Kaj Van de loo is actually the Vice President of Oracle Mobile Cloud development so who better to hear about Oracle MCS from than the developers themselves?
5. An Introduction to Oracle Mobile Application Framework
Monday, Oct 26 | 12:15pm – 1:00pm|Moscone South—304
Grant Ronald, Oracle
This session is bound to be interesting for developers at the begining of their mobile journey. Attend to hear Grant, an Oracle Forms, ADF, and Mobile expert, go over the ins and outs of Oracle Mobile Application Framework. He used to be in charge of the oldest application framework, and now he will be explaining the newest one. A must for all newbies.
6. Systems on the Edge—Your Stepping Stones into Oracle Public Cloud and the PaaS Platform
Tuesday, Oct 27 | 11:00am – 11:45am |Moscone West—2022
Lucas Jellema, AMIS Holding B.V.
Lucas Jellema is literally the top guru in Middleware, so do not attend unless you are ready to learn tons. Lucas will go from top to bottom through the whole cloud PAAS stack with one massive demo. Not to be missed.
7. Oracle Forms 12c: The Beginning of a New Day
Monday, Oct 26 | 11:00am – 11:45am | Moscone South—306

Thursday, Oct 29| 10:45am – 11:30am| Moscone South—270
SriniIndla&Denis Tyrell, Oracle
Although it’s fun to see the development stages, it’s even more critical to know what to do once the app is created. How do we need to secure the app? Attend this session to get your questions answered and more. This is a great chance for experts to really drill down into the world or mobile security.
9. Oracle Mobile Cloud Service: The One Thing Apple iOS and Android Developers Agree On

This session is perfect for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service beginners (similar to Grant’s session for MAF beginners, which we discussed above). Even if you’re not interested in the Cloud, it is really important to get an end-to-end view of what’s going on. This is Oracle vision for the future, so be sure to attend!
10. General Session: Revolutionizing Application Development with Oracle Cloud
Tuesday, Oct 27 | 11:00am – 11:45am| Moscone South—103
Chris Tonas, Oracle
Chris Tonas is the Vice President of Development at Oracle. Yes, this session is high level, but we assure you it should be enlightening for everyone! It’s interesting to see a high level overview of Oracle’s vision and where they are planning to go next from a business prospective as oppose to a technical/tool prospective. Attend to get a global vision of what’s going on at Oracle.
We are excited to be attending OOW this year with a big team. You can find us at our kiosk in the mobile pavilion #009, and in our Premier partners, Samsung booth where we will be demoing 4 solutions on very cool Samsung devices. Request a meeting here.
As usual Mia will be a whirlwind, presenting and preforming her Oracle ACE director duties, and as always, representing the ODTUG board. It’s safe to say we’ll have little down time, but we are very excited to represent these various groups!
Our Vice President of R&D will also be flying in from Tel Aviv, so be sure to schedule a technical demo with him here. Or if you’re interested in partnering, make sure to make an appointment with our VP of Business Development – Gwen Edwards.
And if you want to meet little old me to learn more about our full suite of Oracle Forms modernization, mobile, testing and monitoring solutions, request a meeting here.
Can’t wait to meet everyone in the golden state!
