Hoogvliegers Hasso Schaap and Harro Lissenberg look ahead to Oracle OpenWorld and Oracle Code One 2018Published on: Author: Team Communication Category: News
Are you ready? Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) and Oracle Code One (OCO) will be held this year from October 22-25 in San Francisco, where key Oracle and Java players will come together to discuss the latest industry developments. Five Qualogy colleagues will be in attendance. Hoogvliegers Hasso Schaap and Harro Lissenberg share their expectations.
Harro and Hasso were surprised to be heading to OCO and OOW. They recently won the Hoogvliegers competition and were rewarded with tickets to the event

"That added an extra-festive touch to the Qualogy anniversary in London," says Harro. "During the dinner cruise, CEO Paul Mehilal announced that I was one of the winners of the Hoogvliegers competition. I love attending conferences and meet-ups to stay up to date. I also love holding presentations to share my knowledge. It's amazing that Qualogy is rewarding this with a ticket to OCO in San Francisco," Harro says.
"Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the twentieth anniversary celebrations in London," says Hasso. "But I did hear the good news a few days later at the office. I also love sharing my knowledge in presentations. It's an honor to have my efforts rewarded with a ticket to OOW."
This isn't Hasso's first time at OOW. "I went as a visitor in 2012 and as a guest speaker in 2016. I presented on our experiences with Oracle BI Cloud Services and how we can collaborate on BI content development. I look forward to the 2018 edition. The conferences changes all the time, so I'm curious to see what's new this year."
Harro has also attended the event before. "I went to San Francisco for the first time last year, at JavaOne. This will be my first time at Code One."
Harro is looking forward to OCO for several reasons. "I expect to be inspired by everything I see and hear. I also hope to learn more about unfamiliar technologies I can use to help my clients. Of course, I'm also looking forward to discovering San Francisco."
Hasso hopes to learn more about the new developments. "I'd love to find out more about the integration possibilities the various services offer. But I'm also interested in how Oracle redesigned its BI applications, what a good data warehouse architecture looks like with Oracle technology, and how Qualogy and our clients can benefit from Oracle's Cloud Platform services. I definitely plan on trying out the hands-on labs for new services in the field of data and analytics. OOW is the perfect place to discover these trends."
Hasso's schedule is filled with inspiring sessions. "I'll be attending a session about SparklineData cubes for analytics, several sessions on the Oracle Data Integration Platform Cloud and a morning session on all big data-related services and their possibilities."
Harro is interested in two presentations in particular. "I don't want to miss the session hosted by one of the biggest Java experts in the world, Venkat Subramaniam. I also plan on attending the presentations by my colleague, Michel Schildmeijer."
Mix, mingle and share knowledge
For Hasso, the event is the perfect opportunity to meet other Oracle experts. "I'm not going for the presentations alone, I'm also interested in connecting with several product and development managers in the field of analytics and data integration," says Hasso.
Harro is also looking forward to some interesting encounters. "I hope to exchange knowledge and experiences with other Java experts."
