Be sure to join us on May 9th at Oracle’s Field Office in Deerfield, IL (1405 Lake Cook Road) for a full day of technical training and tips on Oracle Application Express (APEX). Our event will feature the extensive knowledge of David Peake, APEX Product Manager from Oracle Corporation, for a deep dive into the capabilities of APEX, one of the most in-demand application development toolsets today.

I’ll also be presenting briefly about my own experiences on my journey as an “old-school” Oracle DBA as I learned how to leverage the power of Oracle Application Express (APEX) to build a new set of applications based on a real-life use case: constructing mobile, flexible, responsive applications to enable voter canvassing for a US Congressional campaign. (If you’d like to get a preview of what I’ll be presenting, feel free to check out my ongoing journey via my recent four-part article series in IOUG SELECT entitled A DBA’s Journey to APEX, starting with Part 1: From Napkin to Application In a Single Weekend.) 

Best of all, breakfast and lunch are included, courtesy of my colleagues at Viscosity NA. Check the COUG web site events page in the next few days to register for this free event, mark your calendars, and come prepared to have your APEX knowledge expanded dramatically! I look forward to seeing you there.
