I'll be presenting an online webinar for ODTUG not long after the Perth conference.
It will be the same session I did for AUSOUG back in July, which is lucky since it's 6am for us Perth locals. It's a close look at the Oracle APEX 5 Page Designer, and what it means to you as an APEX developer.

It was originally written as a Prezi, but due to my ordinary ADSL connection I've had to convert it to PDF. It translates ok but some of the magic is lost. I'll provide a link to the Prezi on the day and you should be able to follow along with the original if you wish.
Even if you're like me and still love the component view, I reckon once you see all the benefits of the new IDE, you'll be a convert and will be itching for the new release to finally arrive.
