Jim Czuprynski at Oracle Code, New York, NY

Vote Early, Vote Often: From Napkin to Application in One Weekend

12:20 PM – 01:05 PM | Level 1, Hall E, Room 10

Join Viscosity’s Senior Enterprise Database Architect and Oracle ACE Director, Jim Czuprynski, for his popular new session on creating a low code application with Oracle Application Express.  Jim highlights APEX from the perspective of a DBA and has recently presented this session at Collaborate and for the Chicago Oracle User Group. 

The frenetic pace of application development in modern IT organizations means it’s not unusual to demand an application be built with minimal requirement gathering – literally, from a napkin-based sketch – to a working first draft of the app within extremely short time frames – even a weekend! – with production deployment to follow just a few days later.

Viscosity is happy to host GLOC attendees and APEX Day workshop attendees at the speakeasy, Teachers’ Lounge!  Walk across the street with us, immediately following the GLOC APEX Day Pre-conference workshop.

Over at the Drury Plaza Hotel Cleveland, the underground place to grab a casual meal in a cozy setting is in the Teachers’ Lounge. Traverse the hotel’s wide, marble-lined hallways on the first floor, just off the lobby to the hidden bar. While the lounge is small, it’s comfortable and well-designed with themed décor inspired by the building’s former role in education.
