Kscope15 Presentations of Interest

Kscope15 is insanely close and I'm very excited to be making the journey this year.

A few months ago I made a list of presentations that piqued my interest to try encourage a business colleague to come along. Maybe this list will encourage someone to join what I understand to be the world's best conference for APEX developers.

The APEX topics listed in full here
The links below go directly to the author, but they have direct anchor links underneath to the abstract on this page.

Node.js – database to send events to browser. Sounds great for interactive UI and becoming popular fast. Not the only presentation on this topic.

These guys to APEX security for a living, I want to make sure I’m right up to speed

Jasper reports sounds like a potential longer term replacement for Oracle reports. Penny has other suggestions.
D3 is also a cool charting framework like the one I’m using for the display timeline

Interactive reports (IR) have been rebuilt from ground up, including a pivot feature. There are a few presentations on IR

While I might not build a “single page application”, I think some things mentioned here will be worth considering for those beasty pages

I’d like to find hidden nuggets in the pre-built packaged applications, too

A level of CSS I have no idea about.
He’s also the hybrid app expert (apex in cordova)

Apparently “web components” are the next big thing. Less re-inventing the wheel.
He’s also got an interesting one on using node.js to print to ms office

The title says it all – common RWD issues and how to fix them. I wonder how many are fixed with APEX5.
That being said, re-theming existing applications might be hard work that can be replaced with some more basic updates.

JavaScript in tabular forms. While tab forms are typically avoided, I have learnt a lot from this guy and hope to learn more.

Worst practices – the clear competition for my presentation ;p

Template options – using the new theme well. Will change the way templates are used.

Challenges when going mobile – can’t not go.

JSON – I’ve been using it a lot for these pretty timeline reports and charts. Better techniques available.

This fella could be worth a go.

APEX is not the only track, here are some from the middleware bunch that might still be interesting.

Oracle forms migration, these guys do heaps of webinars

MAF is Oracle’s new mobile toy and this might be worth a go – offline mode APEX apps?

Mobile first

UI best practices with Alta. Fusion app specific but Alta may venture to APEX in future. Concepts still apply.

And then some database specific stuff. Many talk about 12c, which would be awesome to have here to help with data migration to test/dev! I updated our course notes for 12c over the festive season and there are a few developer features I’d love to have now ;p

PL/SQL for the 12st century – this guy is the PL/SQL guy.

UX is not UI – could be worth fitting in

JSON in 12c and JS based web apps from an evangelist.

Oracle REST – I need to get my head around the tech capabilities this from this guy.

Tuning with SQL Developer – why not?

Pattern matching. Esoteric, but I’ll fit it in if I can.

You can enrol up to the last minute

Scheduling may be difficult...
