UKOUG is an awesome conference which I've been lucky to attend for about the last 13 years or so (is it really that long!) . Whilst I really enjoy it as a presenter, its also a great place for learning - infact, if you have training budget then I'd be seriously considering spending it on attending UKOUG. The agenda is packed with great content. I'll be presenting on
- Building on-device mobile applications for iOS and Android
- Everything you need to know about Oracle ADF in 45 minutes
I think what is really cool about his year is we have themes which are product agnostic. So you don't have to be hung up on productX versus productY - if you are interested in cloud, or mobile or usability then there are complete streams of content for you.

I had a brilliant couple of days teaching ADF and ADF mobile in Sweden, Norway and Denmark this week and as usual, I got asked for a copy of my slides. However I feel the slides are often worth a lot less without the presenter so instead I thought I would point to links which gives you the same information but in much more digestible format.
For the broad material on learning Oracle ADF I recommend the following
- Quick Start Guide to JDeveloper and Oracle ADF
- ADFInsiderEssentials YouTube channel (Beginners playlist)
For the Forms content we covered
- ADF for Forms and PL/SQL developers
- Why and how to migrate Forms
- White paper Forms redevelopment case study
ADF Mobile content
