Oracle Forms Modernization Collaboration at Collaborate 2013

April 18, 2013

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Collaborate 13 in Denver, CO. Never in a million years did I expect the conference to take place in a snow storm in the middle of April. If I would have known I would not have brought my 3 month old son 🙂 Forms 010

On Tuesday, April 9, OraPlayer  co-hosted  a networking event for the Oracle Forms community along with Greg Opie from ECS Team, and Martin Disterheft from PITSS.  The event was a Happy Hour cocktail under the theme “The Next Generation of Oracle Development: What should we do with our Oracle Forms?”  We even had the honor of hosting Shaun O’Brien, Oracle ADF  Product Manager who joined us to present Oracle’s development vision going forward.   We felt it was a great success. We had over 65 attendants — which is quite an impressive crowd considering Collaborate is not a traditional development conference and we had lots of competition  with other user group events at the same time! The crowd  listened to three great technical sessions featuring ADF and ADF Mobile development, including two customer case studies, and Shaun’s presentation.

If you missed the event or would like to revisit the presentations, you can find them below:
