OOW2010 Tuesday

The day started really early with a 8 o'clock session about ExtJS integrated in APEX. Marc Lancaster is one of the few people I know of who uses ExtJS in an APEX environment, but he still wrote a book about it (due very soon). But I have to admit that the user interface you can create with this framework is very nice. And when you wrap the whole ExtJS stuff in Plugins, it isn't very hard to use. Marc's book will come with a number of Plugins and templates.
The next session was on the Oracle Service Bus. The best thing was that the presenter perfectly demoed how easy (agile) it is to add and change services you need to exchange information from one system to the other.
Next was a session on Edition Based Redefinition. My session is on the same subject, so I was curious what Dan Morgan would tell and show on this matter. But - luckily! - no new stuff for me.
Then I had a very nice lunch with my Logica colleagues here present. Good to meet colleagues from the US, France and Sweden!
The lunch took a little long, so I missed my next scheduled session and went over to Tom Kyte keynote. The coolest thing was he even mentioned my session on one of his slides!
Tonight is the APEX meetup, which I alas have to miss, due to a dinner appointment with Logica colleagues (again) and some customers. After that I'll probably head over to the Benelux cocktail party....
