August in Review

It seems like I wrote the July recap post just last week, but in fact another month has passed and a busy one it was for us.

Vik continued his series of weekly ADF How-Tos and we now have seven PDFs and YouTube videos out there giving you step-by-step guidance on doing some of the most common customization tasks in JDeveloper.  More are in the queue.  And by popular demand, Jani wrote a detailed getting-started white paper for ESS development.

Richard continued to crank out new YouTube videos at an amazing pace.  We now have 35 videos out there, and many of you have subscribed to the channel.  If you haven't yet, please consider subscribing to make sure you don't miss any new releases.  Also, let us know which topics are of interest to you (the "Like" feature in YouTube is perfect for that, or leave comments).

The Oracle Learning Library now has a lot of our media content, offering you a one-stop shop for all things Oracle.

A Look Behind the Curtain

One of our responsibilities that usually does not get much public visibility here is working directly with individual customers or partners on a particular problem.  Some of the issues we worked on in the last few weeks were in the area of web services, clearly an important area for many of you working on Cloud integrations.  The lessons we learn will become the topic of future blog posts and how-tos.

As you may have seen, one of the OpenWorld keynotes given by Larry Ellison will focus on the Oracle Cloud Platform and cover, among other things, the Java Cloud Service.  This is a technology/service that our team has spend quite a bit of time with in recent months from the perspective of an extensibility platform for Fusion Applications.  More on that soon.

OpenWorld 2013

We're on the final stretch in our preparations for OpenWorld.  The session schedule has been published and we'll publish a post soon with some recommendations for our community.  Our work on the one day seminar run by Oracle University continued during the month of August, and there's another exciting project we can't quite talk about yet.  Keep an eye on this blog!

News From Other Teams

Misha Vaughan from the User Experience team gives a run-down of UX activities at this year's OpenWorld on the VoX (Voice of User Experience) blog.
