Community Activities


Everything that has not been included in the official lecture program can be found here: community meetings, workshops, spontaneous sessions and much more.




Fans of open space formats can occasionally make a detour to the Unconference which runs parallel to the conference program on all three conference days – naturally with slots designed by the participants or sponsors.

Make your desired topics public at the DOAG booth – as soon as enough participants have gathered for a topic, the Unconference will start.

  • Unconference
  • Tuesday to Thursday
  • All Day
  • Press Center, Level 1
  • Schedule Poster at DOAG Booth, Level 1


Welcome to the most relaxed area of the conference! The DevZone invites you to planned meetings as well as unexpected encounters. A perfect retreat for relaxed networking or working. If you prefer it action-packed, you will get your money's worth here, too: Grab a controller and challenge other participants to a Mario Kart duel!

Powerpoint Karaoke

Good preparation was yesterday! The Powerpoint-Karaoke requires a talent for improvisation. Brave participants can prove their presentation skills here. Everyone starts in front of an audience with a black screen. The curious thing about it is that you don't know what you are going to perform. The presentations are randomly selected from a pool. From here on improvisation is called for.

Mario Kart Tournament

Let the tires squeal and reminisce! The Mario Kart Tournament in the DevZone is all about having fun. You can register for the tournament and practise on Tuesday. The main phase will take place on Wednesday and the finals will be held on Thursday. Participate and get a chance to win cool prizes! All tournament times can be found in the conference program soon.

Hands-On-Lab: Serverless through Oracle Cloud with Oracle Functions and Events

In this practical workshop you have the opportunity to explore the serverless offerings of the Oracle Cloud, Oracle Functions with OCI Cloud Events and OCI API Gateway. Oracle Functions is a managed Functions-as-a-Service platform based on the Fn Project. OCI Events allows you to trigger a function in reaction to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure incidents, such as creating an Object Store Bucket or starting a Compute Instance. The API Gateway enables you to use functions to create the REST API endpoints. The workshop will be held in English. Please bring your own laptop.
