Kscope is awesome ....

As a tradition, this Sunday Kscope kicked off with a full day of presentations by Oracle's APEX Development Team. And of course it was all about "5.0". Joel started with the "Awesome revolution of APEX" - the term "awesome" (and the associated song) seems the be the conference team this year. After that the Page Designer, Interactive Reports, Mobile development all got the special attention they deserve. But the best part - or at least the most surprising part - was the "UI" presentation by Shakeeb. He introduced the new Universal Theme (number 42) with the Template Options feature - so you need less templates because special settings are driven by the options.


But - with a great "one more thing", he surprised everyone with the demo of the Universal Theme Roller. Similar to http://themeroller.jquerymobile.com/ but it looked better. So you can "live style" the look and feel of your application. CSS knowledge becomes less necessary. The only fear is: what will it do in the hands of a developer - i.c. not a graphic designer ....


All in all a great day - and the conference had not even (officially) started yet!
