YesSQL Celebration 2015: Andy Mendelsohn! Dev Choice Awards!

YesSQL Celebration OOW15
October 26 - 4:00 - 5:30 PM
Park Central Hotel - Metropolitan III Room

Last year, we held our first-ever YesSQL Celebration at OOW14. It was precisely that: a celebration. It started with fascinating stories from Andy Mendelsohn, EVP of Server Technologies (aka, Oracle Database and more), about early days at Oracle, then moved on to presentations from various development teams ("Meet the folks who write this amazing software!"). Highlights include Andrew Witkowski, SQL Architect, in a NoSQL pirate disguise, Mike Hichwa talking about the origins of Application Express, and Mohamed Zait and the optimizer team in a highly amusing and self-produced video.

This year, we will celebrate SQL (and PL/SQL, and related appdev technologies in Oracle Database) at OOW once again, but the event will be slightly different.

The agenda this year is simpler, different and very exciting, because in addition to Andy Mendelsohn as our featured speaker (more time to tell more stories about life at Oracle and the amazing SQL language!), we will be announcing the winners of the inaugural round of Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards: 


Read more about these awards here, but the most important thing to know is that:

You decide the winners - chosen by popular vote...so VOTE!

Please take a few minutes to check out the finalists and vote for your favorites. Encourage your co-workers to do the same.

And if you are attending OOW15, please take a break from the normal craziness of the week, to celebrate with us both the great appdev technologies of Oracle Database and, more importantly, the amazing technologists around the world who share their knowledge and grow the community!
