2009 Oracle OpenWorld Call For Papers - closed

I hope everyone in the APEX Community who planned to participate at the Oracle Open World 2009 had the time to post their paper. I posted mine. ;) The title of my abstract is "Implementing a database centric framework for Oracle Application Express".

Technical Review - Forms Conversion to APEX

At the beginning of the year, David Peake blogged about APEX books and authors wanted . I was approached by Packt Publishing to do a technical review of Douwe Pieter 's book on Forms Conversion to APEX. The book will cover every aspect of a conversion project. It's a good and useful tool for the majority of programmers, analysts and project managers. Those who are new to APEX or Forms will have plenty of information to go through the conversion process without much pain. And for those who know Forms and APEX, it will help them go a lot faster. Remember, Forms Conversion to APEX won't be magic and you'll need to read the official documentation and or a book that will help you learn faster. Don't miss my Forms Conversion to APEX presentation in Montreal and Quebec City on May 19th 2009 and May 21th 2009 respectively. I hope to see your there! :)

My blog will still be covering the development of applications with the wonderful tool that is APEX. Stay tuned for my new demo application website. I am in charge of Apex Québec an initiative of SIE. This website is a tool aimed at the French Community working in the province of Quebec.
