|In September Packt attended the annual Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco - with this year’s conference being bigger and better than ever.
This year, not only were we attending, but we also had the opportunity to exhibit, with a Packt booth on the conference floor showcasing all our Oracle titles. We also had a plethora of Packt books available for sale in the Oracle bookstore – making their mark in the bookstore’s annual bestseller’s list.
Exhibiting also gave us a great opportunity to see what you thought of Packt and our current book titles. There was an overwhelmingly positive response, with a great deal of interest in our new releases Oracle Fusion Middleware Patterns, Getting Started with Oracle BPM Suite 11gR1 – A Hands-On Tutorial and WS-BPEL 2.0 for SOA Composite Applications with Oracle SOA Suite 11g.
Several of our authors (pictured below) were also in attendance, including Sue Harper, Heidi Buelow, Prasen Palvankar, Matjaz B. Juric, Marcel Krizevnik, Ashok Aggarwal, Amit Gupta, Antony Reynolds, Douwe Pieter van den Bos, Narayan Bharadwaj, Ann McKinnell, Eric Yen, April Sims, Debu Panda, Marcus Hirt, and Marcus Lagergren.
Something else which also generated a lot of interest was our raffle competition - for an iPad loaded with all our Oracle eBooks – the lucky winner of which was Rich Tylka from Columbus, Ohio (pictured left)
We hope to see you there next year...
