OpenWorld "Schedule Builder" - Get First Dibs On Your Favorite Sessions

Shay Shmeltzer's recent blog post reminds me to alert you that things are first come first serve at OpenWorld this year! Use the new Schedule Builder tool to get first dibs on your favorite .NET Oracle Develop sessions!

Anyway, Shay said it so well, and has such a great first name, that I will just plagiarize from him shaymelessly:

"But the conference is two months out, why should I do it now?" - you might be asking.

Well the reason is that this is the only way you can guarantee you get to see the sessions you want to see. This year people who register for sessions ahead of time will get into the room before people who just show up. Considering the fact that this is going to be the biggest OOW ever in terms of number of attendees - you want to secure your place. Also, I know how it goes when you don't schedule, you start the conference spending the first hour of each day trying to figure out which session to go to - and by the time you end your daily planning you already missed the morning session. Scheduling your sessions now will also help us better plan rooms allocation for popular sessions.

So do us all a favor and start scheduling now.

Thank you, Shay!
