Not only can you win a lot of money, the winner is also announced on several German web sites and in the media. In case you always wanted to get famous or wanted to increase the publicity of your company, that’s your chance! received an award from the Prince of Wales!

Just read on Rob Smyth’s Blog that Oracle’s platform won the Merrill Lynch “Investing in Young People” award!

But what does this have to do with Oracle APEX?

A lot!! Because is developed with Oracle APEX!!! And according to Rob it serves 7,393 schools and 643,003 pupils!
