Last Friday I received a mail from IOUG Collaborate telling me my abstracts were accepted. It will be my first Collaborate attendance (and my first visit to Las Vegas), so I am very honored by that!
I will do the next two presentations there:
It's great to integrate: Integrating Oracle Forms within Oracle Application Express.
Since the release of version 3.2, the Oracle Forms migration toolkit is part of Oracle Application Express. This toolkit is not a silver bullet, so for complex Forms, labor-intensive adjustments in APEX will be necessary. To preserve investments in Oracle Forms and to prevent large re-investments in APEX, it is an advantage if you fully integrate existing Oracle Forms within Oracle Application Express.
In this session you will learn how to integrate existing Oracle Forms in Oracle Application Express pages and how you can make these two technologies communicate with each other.
Tales from a Parallel Universe: Using 11gR2’s Edition Based Redefinitions (in APEX).
Of all of the new features that are included in version 11gR2 of the Oracle Database, Edition Based Redefinitions could be the one that has the highest impact on the way we develop database centric applications. With Edition Based Redefinitions you can have multiple versions of the same object in your database schema in order to support multiple releases of an application at a time.
In this session you will learn what Edition Based Redefinitions are, how to use them and how this new functionality could change the way you look at your application development lifecycle.
In this presentation there will be lots of demos, to show the potentiality in an APEX environment.
A couple of hours later I received a similar mail from ODTUG Kaleidoscope that one of the abstracts I submitted was also accepted! The one I'll do in Washington is:
Creating sub-zero dashboard plugin for APEX with Google Visualizations
APEX is cool, Google is cool, Google Visualizations are even cooler. So the combination the coolest technologies available must be sub-zero.
Using the new APEX 4.0 plug-in features I will show how to create dashboards - with charts not native available in APEX - using Google Visualizations.
So I hope to see you all in either Vegas or Washington (or both!). In the meantime I have some time (and need it!) to create the presentations - 2 out of 3, because I already did the first one a couple of times - and white papers....
