If you're in Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Brazil or Argentina, Oracle APEX is coming to you!

In the first part of November, my colleague David Peake and I are taking the Oracle APEX & Oracle Database Cloud message to a number of Oracle user groups and communities who are graciously hosting us as part of the Oracle Developer Tour Latinoamérica.  These are countries for which there is growing interest in Oracle Application Express, and we wish to help support these groups and aid in fostering their growing APEX communities.

The dates and locations are:
  1. Panamá, November 1, 2017
  2. Colombia, November 2-3, 2017
  3. Ecuador, November 7, 2017
  4. Paraguay, November 8, 2017
  5. Brasil, November 9-10, 2017
  6. Argentina, November 13-14, 2017
You should consider attending one of these conferences if:

  • You're a CIO or manager, and you wish to understand what Oracle Application Express is and if it can help you and your business.
  • You're a PL/SQL developer, and you want to learn how easy or difficult it is to exploit your skills on the Web and in the Cloud.
  • You come from a client/server background and you want to understand what you can do with your skills but in Web development and Cloud development.
  • You're an Oracle DBA, and you want to understand if you can use Oracle Application Express in your daily responsibilities.
  • You know nothing about Oracle Application Express and you want to learn a bit more.
  • You're experienced with Oracle Application Express and you want to learn what's in the future for Oracle APEX.

If you have any interest or questions or concerns (or complaints!) about Oracle Application Express, and you are nearby, we would be very honored to meet you in person and assist in any way we can.  We hope you can make it!

P.S. I couldn't make it to Panamá, but David will be there, so please join him.

Hi, Joel, Costa Rica is part of the ODT too, and we'll be having a couple sessions about APEX, if you can not do Panamá because of David, you still can do Costa Rica and be here with us on October 31th. You can be sure you're more than welcome here.

Sadly Venezuela, my country, is never taken into account anymore in any of these Tech Tours. That is pretty sad but understandable.

I have a huge background using Oracle Forms and Reports (6i,12c). We still use it extensively.

I have also been working with Apex 5 and am very pleased with the possibilities this great, great tool offers. Particularly on building dashboards, IR, and Oracle Jet Integration, not to mention the mobileor responsive capabilitities.

Good luck for those who attend. Take great advantage from these events. It is a great place to meet people and find oportunities.

Hi Luis - please come to Medellín (seriously). It would be great to meet you.

Hi Joel.

Joel thanks for caring.

I'm afraid it is out of me reach for the moment.

Love to attend though.

BTW Medellin is a beautiful City. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Regards, Luis....!!!!
