The Oracle Appreciation Event that appears to apply to Oracle OpenWorld 2011 and JavaOne 2011 features two of my favorite music performers: Sting and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The slogan on the main Oracle OpenWorld 2011 page states (and I agree): "Two Legendary Performers. One Stage." The Oracle OpenWorld Blog has a related interview with Sting called Sting to Perform at Oracle OpenWorld 2011. As was the case last year, the Oracle Appreciation Event appears to be open to participants of both JavaOne 2011 and Oracle OpenWorld 2011. This event is scheduled for Wednesday, 5 October 2011, from 7:30 pm to midnight, at Treasure Island, San Francisco.
The JavaOne 2011 Call for Papers closes tonight.
