  • High Availability Architectures - This topic is all about HA! These presentations may be enterprise-wide platform design and build techniques, such as found in Oracle's Enterprise Deployment Guides, or perhaps around building highly available clusters of web servers coupled with WebLogic.
  • Identity Management - This topic covers Oracle's Identity and Access Management products - how best to use them, as well as their integration into the wider corporate environments, identity governance, and so on.
  • In-Memory Data Grids - Coherence, how best to use it, and its new features belong in this topic.
  • Integration Technologies - This topic is primarily about Oracle Data Integrator, though may include Oracle GoldenGate where relevant.
  • Management and Administration (Inc. EM) - Here are presentations around Oracle Enterprise Manager packs and approaches that are specific to Fusion Middleware. For example, the WebLogic or SOA Management Packs, or building out Middleware as a Service. More general subjects around production middleware administration may also be found here.
  • Security - Here you will find presentations around implementing security across products, with less of a focus on the Oracle IDM products. Examples might be TLS/SSL, end to end message security (e.g. WS-Security), security management, etc.
  • WebLogic - This topic is all about WebLogic - deployment, administration, tuning and clustering.
  • Web Tier - This topic is for presentations around the various Oracle web tier products, as well as third party ones such as Apache.

  • Mobile - With more devices than there are people on the planet, mobile is a topic that is literally at everyone's fingertips. This stream looks to bring together sessions on web access to mobile device, native on-device iOS, Android, and hybrid frameworks as well as developing back-end services for mobile consumption.
  • Cloud - The stream for any aspect of developing bespoke Oracle-based applications with, and for, Oracle and non-Oracle Cloud-based services.
  • Java - This covers the broad spectrum of any aspect of developing Oracle-based bespoke applications using Java-based tools, technologies, frameworks and middleware, from Oracle or Third Parties, e.g. SOA, BPM, WebCenter, ADF or JDeveloper.
  • Database - Presentations on developing database-centric Oracle-based applications using modern and legacy Oracle and Third Party tools and technologies, e.g. SQL Developer, APEX
  • Architecture - This covers any aspect of architecture (enterprise, data, solutions, etc.) related to the development of bespoke Oracle-based applications. This also covers traditional terms such as Strategy, Analysis or Design.
