My presentation at ODTUG Kaleidoscope

Just a very short blog posting, I’m currently sitting in the APEX vs ADF Shootout session hosted by Dimitri and Lucas, but I thought I should put my Increase Your Oracle APEX Development Productivity with Open Source Tools presentation online, which I have presented yesterday.

So here you go, it’s in the download section together with my other presentations.

DOAG conference 2007 and my presentation

On Wednesday and Thursday I have been at the DOAG conference (by German Oracle User Group) in Nürnberg. It was my first time visiting this conference.

The Power of the Oracle APEX Repository

Hope you like it!

PS: If you have other good examples for the usage of the views, let me know.

And it looks like that people are really interested in some more advanced Oracle APEX topics, because 95 people attended the very well organized meeting!
