|02-OCT-2011 12:00PM||Oracle Application Express Adolescence||Oracle Application Express is entering the adolescence phase of its development. Adolescence is a critical phase in both childhood and software development, in that several decisions need to be made—all of which will be hard to undo. As "parents" of Oracle Application Express, we have the responsibility to guide it through this critical yet typically awkward phase, instilling our knowledge and wisdom every step of the way.
This year's ODTUG Sunday Symposium covers some of those decision points and outlines things we can do to ensure that Oracle Application Express becomes a productive "adult." After a brief overview, it take a deep dive into agile development with Oracle Application Express and best practices in terms of Oracle Application Express itself, PL/SQL, and security. ||Scott Spendolini||Moscone West - 2014||28580|
|02-OCT-2011 12:30PM||Agile Software Development with Oracle Application Express||When Oracle Application Express is coupled with an agile software development methodology by a skilled, motivated, and self-organized team, good things happen. This presentation outlines how and why Oracle Application Express is such a good fit with an agile software development methodology. To start, a brief overview of agile software development methodology sets the stage by defining key processes and terminology. This is followed by concrete examples that demonstrate how many Oracle Application Express features explicitly support and complement agile software development methodology. In the hands of a professional team, this winning combination is capable of extraordinary commercial success.||Patrick Cimolini||Moscone West - 2014||28600|
|02-OCT-2011 01:15PM||Advanced Oracle Application Express Team Development||Attendees at this session will learn how to manage large-scale development projects with Oracle Application Express, including application planning, design patterns, designing for reuse, source code configuration management with Subversion, and deployments. In the session, JSA2 Solutions experts share several real-world examples of large-scale active projects using Oracle Application Express with 5- to 10-member development teams.||Joseph Acero||Moscone West - 2014||28640|
|02-OCT-2011 04:00PM||Best Practices for PL/SQL Development in Oracle Application Express||Oracle Application Express generates applications built on the PL/SQL language, and Oracle Application Express developers write additional PL/SQL code to handle complex requirements. There is always a tendency when writing code within a UI-driven environment to treat that code rather casually—after all, it is not the main part of the application. That is a big mistake, because this custom code must be maintained and enhanced. If you don't write it well, that maintenance will become a nightmare. This session provides recommendations on establishing a solid foundation for custom PL/SQL development in Oracle Application Express, covering error management, tracing, and key performance techniques.||Steven Feuerstein||Moscone West - 2014||28660|

|03-OCT-2011 05:00PM||Building a User-Definable, Flexible UI with Oracle Application Express: Case ...||In this session, the presenter discusses how he built a GUI and a geographic information system (GIS) application with Oracle Application Express for Independent Nation, a company that specializes in providing intelligence to independent voters. The application is used to provide that intelligence. Merging voter registration, voter contribution, and numerous other datasources, he built an application that is dynamic and flexible. It can easily be used for any other GIS-type applications. It's built on data about people, their properties or the addresses they live at, and other information about them. This case study demonstrates an approach to designing and developing applications that enables customization by changing data, not code. ||Bradley Brown||Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate C3||3343|

Come to this session to learn what Oracle has added into Interactive Reports to make them even more compelling for online reporting. Even though Oracle Application Express makes it very easy for developers to create applications, it remains intimidating for many business users. These users are often not comfortable with defining tables and other database components, so Oracle developed the Websheets feature of Oracle Application Express, which enables end users to create pages of static information together with data grids that are effectively updatable interactive reports without the need for any tables. ||Christina Cho||Marriott Marquis - Salon 9||15754|
