Last Thursday (17/06) Oracle Benelux User Group, aka OBUG, organised his first APEX SIG, an initiative of Dimitri Gielis and Roel Hartman. Even though the new version of the product is not yet “in production”, the theme of the day was APEX 4.0.
We, at iAdvise, are one of the early promoters of Oracle Application Express in Belgium. Since 2006, we implemented already different solutions with APEX. Therefore, we could not be absent at this event and decided to participate and sponsor this first APEX SIG day.
Olivier Dupont and Jan Huyzentruyt gave a presentation with the title: “APEX 4.0: Feature 135, 184, 301, 315, 348 … How it was before, how it is now !” The idea was to demonstrate some of the less spectacular new features of Apex 4.0 that (1) makes the life of the APEX developer easier and more productive and (2) allows to create more good looking, to the point web-application. Most of those features we explained by showing how it was in the “old” days, and how (easy) it is with APEX 4.0.
For everybody who could not attend the OBUG session, we published our presentation at slideshare.net:
