Every year, San Francisco is packed with database professionals and Oracle really knows how to show off. It seems like they rented every piece of advertising space in the city and the airport. And with the addition of JavaOne and an ever-growing Oracle Develop conference, this year they are not only blocking one but two streets in downtown San Francisco to put up huge tents. I just took this picture showing the halfway-done mason street tent from my hotel room. Awesome, I cannot wait for the conference to finally start tomorrow.
