Oracle Cloud Day
Oracle Cloud Day is a curated series of talks, hands-on experiences, and networking opportunities that will help you explore new cloud technologies, best practices, and successful use cases.
Why Oracle Cloud Day?
Whether your race to the cloud is a marathon or a sprint, Oracle Cloud Day can help.
We’ve built Oracle Cloud Day around new technologies, best practices, and successful customer use cases. The result is a highly informative event where you’ll take away actionable insights that you can apply to your own journey right now.
- Keynotes featuring Oracle cloud visionaries, partners, customers, and other thought leaders
- A Developer Playground hosted by developers, packed with dev-inspired technical talks, hands-on experiences, cloud consultants, and fun challenges
- Three customized tracks designed for IT experts, architects and integrators, and data professionals
- Customer success stories
- Integrated partner experiences and networking with the peers you want to talk to in the Oracle Innovation Lounge
New this year, our Developer Playground is an entirely different experience tailor-made for developers. Functioning as its own event, the playground gets you learning right away with hands-on labs. Later in the day, you’ll have the opportunity to listen to Solution Engineers talk about Cloud Native, see demos, compete in challenges, get expert advice, and more. This fast-paced environment will keep you learning—and most importantly doing—all day long.
Open throughout the day, the Innovation Lounge is the very heart of Oracle Cloud Day, designed to give you an opportunity to connect with your peers, see expert demonstrations, visit with our partners, and recharge your energy with terrific food and drink. With plenty of space to gather and share ideas, the Innovation Lounge is the perfect place to expand your cloud horizons in a freeform, self-driven environment.
