Looks like that the proposed Oracle APEX sessions at Oracle Mix did quite well. Not only did Raj’s session about Security: Writing Custom Authentication Schemes for Application Express get most votes, congratulation Raj! But what I have counted, there are also 8 other Oracle APEX related sessions which made it into the top 35 sessions which are going to be invited to Oracle Open World 2008.
A great day for Oracle APEX at OOW 2008!
