AUSOUG Conference Perth, November 2014

What a great conference – there’s been a lot of praise for the organisers and all the speakers. I haven’t missed a conference since I started 15 years ago, and I hope it keeps going (in one form or another) for a long time to come.

This year I attended the following sessions (some titles changed for effect):

Björn Rost – 12c for DBAs and Developers; FDA (time to drop those journal triggers)

Scott Wesley – CSS & JQuery hands-on lab; 5 Security & Performance Techniques

Branka NjegichCraig Purser – a Case Study about building a very slick Tablet app in Apex

Martin Power – how to recover from data block corruption (where I realised it’s about time I learned this “rman” thing)

Connor McDonald – 12c for Developers in only 1,000,000 slides

Penny Cookson – OHarmony (or, how to find a tall, dark DBA…)

Tim Hall – Performance Mistakes; PL/SQL Function Call Performance

Gavin Soorma – How to Migrate your Data to 12c

If you are interested, you can review the slides from my presentation here: Building Maintainable Applications in Apex. Whether or not you agree with all my points, I hope it at least makes you think :)
