I hope today was the hardest day of the trip…
We landed In San Francisco on saturday afternoon.
From the airport to Moscone West for our conferences passes because we had our presentation at 9am on sunday morning.
A late dinner and off to bed, but after being awake for 24 hours, something called jetlag wakes you up in the middle of the night.
And like I said, we had to be at Moscone South at 9am for our session: “Oracle ADF Immersion: How an Oracle Forms Developer Immersed Himself in the Oracle ADF World“.
It was a session for ADF EMG, hosted by Chris Muir.
A nice turnout for a sunday morning, allthough I don’t think all 120 pre-registered were there that early.
I hope we could convince some Forms developers that they really can start with ADF and that they will conquer the barriers like the Oracle Forms Community blog writes.
The other sessions I followed of the ADF EMG were very interesting:
- ” A Peek into the Oracle ADF Architecture of Oracle Fusion Applications”: Simon Haslam had invited Ken Mizuta of Oracle Applications and he answered questions about how they developed and set up Oracle Applications.
- And the 3 hour live demo: “Oracle Fusion Middleware Live Application Development Demo ” of Lucas Jellema, Ronald van Luttikhuizen, Guido Schmutz, Luc Bors and Aino Andriessen. Very interesting to see how they worked out a complete application with BPM, SOA and ADF.
Also two announcements at the ADF EMG sessions:
- ADF EMG Task flow tester by Steven Davelaar
- Oracle ADF Architecture Square with the ADF Code guidelines
And of course at the end of the day there was the Keynote of Fujitsu(mainly about Big Data) and Larry Ellison.
A lot of strange faces when Larry had a remote control to change slides…everybody seemed to think ‘no more “Next slide, please!”?’, but then it happened…he said it. On purpose? Maybe :-)
Larry did some announcements:
- IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service)
- Private Cloud: you own cloud behind the firewall
- Database 12C: the first multi-tenant database
- Exadata X3 with……..26TB (flash)memory!
Off to bed now!
