  • The Quick Start Guide to Oracle ADF is based on my book and is aimed at giving you a whistlestop tour of what ADF is all about.
  • Mobile Application for the Enterprise will be focused on the hot topic of developing for mobile devices, the market, the challenges and some of the solutions.

I've also go my eye on "Mobile in Fusion: Rich User Experience Through Reusable Design Patterns" inbetween my sessions which should be an interesting insight on the user experience challenges of how we build mobile applications for Fusion.
