Earlier in 2018, Oracle introduced the Oracle AskTOM Office Hours, which is doing a great job of increasing the community outreach from the various Oracle Database product teams. On a regular schedule and via a webinar, AskTOM Office Hours provides direct access to internal experts from Oracle across a variety of technologies - SQL, PL/SQL, Database Cloud, .NET, Multitenant, Upgrades & Migrations, and many more. While "office hours" are classically question and answer sessions, some of the AskTOM office hours also include demonstrations, announcements, and of course, general Q&A. What's even better, if you cannot attend a specific Office Hours session, the recording will be available for viewing later at your convenience. The Oracle APEX team has been conspicuously absent from the AskTOM Office Hours, but those days are over.
We are introducing the Oracle APEX Office Hours, beginning June 28, 2018 and continuing approximately every two weeks through early 2019. Every other session will be targeted at beginners, so if you're completely new to APEX or want to learn more, there will be topics for you too. We will also schedule a number of the sessions to be done live during times conducive to our many customers in Asia, Middle East, Australia, etc.
The first session, scheduled for June 28, 2018 is an "ask me anything", and will include the vast majority of the Oracle APEX product development team members. This will be followed by an office hours session on July 12, 2018 - led by Senior Software Development Manager Marc Sewtz, on the new features of Oracle APEX 18.1.

We encourage you to also review the AskTOM Office Hours site and review all of the other Office Hours sessions from the many product experts at Oracle.
P.S. Please bring your questions, especially those questions which are appropriate for a large, general audience. Unfortunately, office hours is not intended to be a general product support medium or live debugging forum.
