OTech Magazine Issue 4 - APEX 5 and much more

Well it's the second half of August and this is my first real post for the month. There are two very good reasons for this:

1) We've just completed a major implementation at one of our clients - a tablet based application using APEX, which completely changes the face of a major arm of the business. It's a groundbreaking application with only one peer in the industry - which users are already claiming superiority to and it's had years to mature. It's been a very enjoyable project with a glowing success story - kudos to my Sage colleagues and the entire team.

2) Douwe Pieter van den Bos from OTech Magazine asked if I would like to contribute to their next quarterly issue, but with a catch - it had to be submitted pretty soon as they were already finalising the content. I hadn't actually heard of it until I received a LinkedIn request from Douwe. This is only the fourth issue so I don't feel too bad. I browsed through the previous issues and read what the magazine is all about and it was something to which I was more than happy to contribute.

I think Douwe had seen my series of blog posts on APEX 5 and asked if I would like to add something on that. I also recently presented on the topic in Perth, so I figured my Prezi was something I could quickly adopt into prose. It was a bit of a rush job and I feel it shows a little, but I plan to do the presentation again as an ODTUG webinar, so stay tuned if you want to hear the original format.

OTech Magazine #4
OTech Magazine is free, independently produced, well polished, digitally formatted for Oracle professionals. The editors carefully select authors & articles in efforts to obtain high quality content. My APEX 5 (EA2) article is in the just released "Summer 2014" issue. Yep, I quoted that because I'm not sure that global products should relate to a season - especially since I'm currently living in a "winter" climate. Yep, I quoted that too because we're enjoying mostly 22C sunny days - I blame climate change.

It confuses the heck out of me when I see a movie advertised for release in Winter 2015 - what range of months is that?!

Anyway, check out the OTech Magazine - you'll find yourself wanting to read the past issues.
