As luck would have it, my abstract "Go Global with Application Express!" has been accepted for presentation at ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2008. I'm quite happy about this because:
1) I'm covering a topic that I believe is relevant to many people, whether they realize it or not. If it isn't today, it will be eventually. Europeans typically have to design and support multi-lingual and multi-locale applications (those poor Swiss get hit the hardest), it's common throughout Asia, especially in China with the support of Simplified and Traditional Chinese, and the requirement to develop these types of applications will only continue to grow in America.
2) There should be a plethora of sessions on Application Express, once again. Some of the ones that the committee just "couldn't bear to turn down" include Patrick Wolf, John Scott and Dimitri Gielis. The ever-growing APEX community will be there.
3) I love crawfish.
See you in New Orleans in June.
