By: Monty Latiolais On: October 16, 2018 In: Insum Life Comments: 0

Oracle OpenWorld18 is nigh. This year Insum’s own, Francis Mignault and I will be in attendance. We are looking forward to meeting with the Oracle Product Development teams, our wonderful partners and most importantly clients and potential clients.

Still with tens of thousands of people in attendance it can be a challenge to locate people. To make it easy, drop us a email (fmignault@insum.talan.com or mlatiolais@insum.talan.com) or a tweet (@fr4ncis or @monty_latiolais). Let’s grab a cup of joe and chat APEX!!

If you have not built your Oracle OpenWorld18 agenda by now, here are some suggestions.

Michael Hichwa, Oracle

Time: 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. Location: Moscone West – 3009

In this session learn how the RAD stack approach incorporates everything you need for a successful business application. REST is today’s dominant architectural style and the agreed-upon method for tying applications together. Oracle Database is the fastest and most versatile database in the world, available for free or for enterprise installations, on-premises or in Oracle Cloud. And Oracle Application Express, the fastest way to build responsive, flexible, and durable web applications for the Oracle Database. Attendees get a free t-shirt so you can look good tomorrow at the developer community happy hour and around the conference center.

Why Citizen Developers Should Be Your New Best Friend [TRN4091]

David Peake, Oracle

Time: 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. Location: Moscone West – 3009

You keep hearing how “low-code” tools are the next big thing in app development and how “citizen developers” are building their own apps using no-code and low-code tools. Oracle Application Express is very much a low-code tool, and even more so with Oracle Application Express 18.1. In this session learn how and why you as an IT professional should engage with these citizen developers to greatly improve productivity, engagement, and for the good of your organization. See how with Oracle Application Express 18.1 you can readily guide these citizen developers to become development stars.


Maximizing the Value of Municipal Open Data APIs with Low-Code Development Tools [TRN4092]

Mark Sewtz, Oracle

Time: 4:45 – 5:30 p.m. Location: Moscone West – 3009

Many cities offer comprehensive open data portals, with APIs that provide information on various types of government activities. Making this data publicly available makes governments more accessible and accountable to the communities they serve. Given the right tools to mine and analyze this data, businesses and citizens just might develop new and innovative apps that take full advantage of the data provided. In this session explore a few of the more than 750 public data sets provided by the City of New York and see how anyone can use cloud-based low-code tools such as Oracle Application Express to easily build powerful data analysis tools that tap into data including expenditures, 311 service requests, and demographic and education data.


Creating REST-Enabled SQL References and Web Services with Oracle Application Express [HOL6326]

David Peake, Oracle

Time: 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. Location: Marriott Marquis (Yerba Buena) Salon 3 – 4

One of the marquee features of Oracle Application Express 18.1 is the improved ability to consume external REST services and REST-enabled SQL. In this session learn how to reference external REST services as web source modules and how to create reports, charts, calendars, or other components using these. Remote Oracle Databases can be accessed as REST-enabled SQL services as well; learn to create an Oracle Application Express component driven by an SQL query and have it executed on a remote Oracle Database over a REST interface using HTTPS and JSON.

DBAs start asking questions about managing Oracle Application Express and installing it in Oracle Databases, such as: How can I properly backup and recover Oracle Application Express applications? How do I integrate an Oracle Application Express installation with Oracle E-Business Suite? What are the different component required and supported for the middle tier? Those questions and much more are answered in this session.

Meet us at Oracle OpenWorld18 too?

Aside from the sessions mentioned above, we can likely be found at the Oracle APEX kiosk at Oracle OpenWorld18 located in The Exchange (Area 133) in Moscone South…as best I can determine.

We’ll also be supporting the ODTUG APEX Community Tuesday night at Johnny Foley’s.  (https://www.meetup.com/ODTUGers/events/255055562/) Get there early. This place will fill up!!

OK. That about does it. Let’s get packing!!
