What happened at the first ORCLAPEX-BE Meetup?

Yesterday I attended the first ORCLAPEX-BE Meetup. Very well organised by Dimitri and Roeland. Remarkable fact: I was not the only "foreigner" as around 30 - 40% of the - around 16 - attendees where Dutch! So Meetups can even easily cross borders ...

So after some initial socialising.... 
... ... Roeland explained the concept of these kind of meetups.

In the next hour Dimitri went over all the great new features of APEX5, like Page Designer, Modal Pages, Syntax Highlighter etc.

Then there was plenty of pizza (and more socialising).

And then I went over the smaller - but nevertheless cool - features of APEX5 (as described in earlier blogposts).

Alas I had to leave after my presentation - looking at an almost 3 hour drive back home. But I know that the last 20 minutes or so where filled with two "Open Mic Night"-style demo's.
I think all attendees had a good time. I really like the concept: relaxed networking, some presentations - with a lot of interaction due to the smaller crowd - and pizza. 
The next ORCLAPEX-BE Meetup is already planned at November 19. Sign up here!
