I am back from my roadtrip from Oracle Code Moscow. An amazing city and people, keynotes, Hands-on-Labs, a lot of sessions, DevLive interviews and over 500 Developers.

A few key takeaways.

 

  • Travel opens hearts and minds.
  • Amazing people from those who work behind the scenes, attendees and those who are on stage are everywhere.
  • Keynotes covered the changing role of the developer, API First, Mircroservices, the role of Chatbots in user interaction and more.
  • Moscow has an amazing history, a river that runs through it, great food, a metro/subway/underground and beautiful people.
  • In the DevLive interviews we got to interview speakers and attendees providing both a behind the scenes and a more probing look at the topics they covered.
  • Folks loved the cloud demos, from the CNC Cutter, 3D Printer, Cloud Coffee Demo, PacMan demo and more.
