Mobile Application development - get hands on at UKOUG

Development of mobile solutions is one of the hottest topics in the IT market at the moment.  Forbes predicts that mobile application development with outstrip native PC development by 4-1 by 2015.  I'm therefor delighted to announce that the UKOUG and Oracle have synch'd up to provide a rolling 3 day hands-on Mobile development lab at the UKOUG conference this year.

We're setting up a lab of 10 Mac machines in which you will be able to develop iOS on-device applications.  And the great thing is, if you want to develop for Android, its the same lab as well!  Just think, write once and deploy to iOS or Android.

 We know places will be limited so we are going to be putting in place a first-come-first-served booking system.  Walk-ups will be allowed only if places are free.

This is your chance to start skilling up on the hottest development initiative in years.

UKOUG Call for Papers 2012

That time is upon us.  The UKOUG have a call for papers for the main technology conference which happens at the end of the year in Brimingham.  This is a key Oracle conference and the lifeblood is those who are willing to present.  So, if you have a story to tell, some insight into technology or even an opinion, this might make an interesting way of raising your profile whilst helping to education others.  Apart from anything else, as a speaker you get to attend the conference and see some amazing presenters.  Infact, I tend to think that this is really cheap way of getting some great training: you offer to speak for 45 minutes and then you get to attend 3 days of sessions!

The call for papers closes on the 1st June so you have 2 weeks to think up some interesting topics.
