This years best gift: The Expert Oracle Application Express book

Last year, during ODTUG's Kaleidoscope in Washington, John Scott asked me if I was interested in co-authoring a book on APEX. And it wouldn't be just another APEX book, but a book written by the top presenters/bloggers on APEX. So I was deeply honoured...
But the best thing, all revenues will go to the memorial funds of two great guys of the APEX Development Team: Carl Backstrom and Scott Spadafore. (For the complete story, see John's blog). So I immedtiately said: Yes, sure!
And now the book is almost there - should be released somewhere in May. So if you're slightly interested in APEX or an APEX geek: This is THE book to order (click here). All authors wrote one chapter on an area that they are expert on, and the goal was to write stuff that has never been written before. So the book contains not a lot easy stuff, but more the complex / think-out-of-the-box kind of stuff (with lots of code of course!).
So there are chapters on: Security, Configuration Management, Charts, Team Development, Tabular Forms, Globalization and Plug-ins (and this is not even a complete list). If you're familiar with the authors you can probably map the chapters on the authors...
So get your hands on it a.s.a.p. You will not only learn tons of new stuff, but also support a good cause when buying it...
