Oracle OpenWorld: The View From the Show Floor – & Beyond
SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle's Autonomous Database Cloud, which runs without human intervention, was a highlight of this week's OpenWorld conference.

Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL)'s annual convocation of the faithful.
Also on hand: a futuristic hotel and car. And dogs. And me and my camera.
Here's some of what I saw, and links to our OpenWorld coverage.
The conference took over all three buildings of San Francisco's Moscone Center. Oracle also took over the street between the two main Moscone buildings, where you can see attendees relaxing and catching up on work.
