Real World ADF - another new ADF book hits the stands

I'm pleased to report that yet another Oracle ADF book hits the bookstores this month.  One of my fellow Product Managers, Jobinesh, has written Oracle ADF Real World Developer's Guide.  

I'm currently awaiting a copy for review and can't wait to get into this book.  Jobinesh is an incredibly smart and switched-on technical ADF guru and I'm convinced I'm going to learn a whole lot of tips and techniques from this book. Once I get my hands on a copy I'll be writing up a full review.

As someone who has written an Oracle ADF book already, I know the effort that goes into something like that, so well done Jobinesh.

Oracle ADF at Oracle World, a short video!

It has been wall to wall ADF, JDeveloper, Fusion and Forms for me and thousands other at Oracle World this year.  For those not able to make it, I've put together a short video around Oracle ADF and the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group.  Now you know what I get up to when jet lagged at 2am in a hotel room at Oracle World!

How Popular is ADF? Come and See at Oracle World

One indication of the popularity and importance of a technology is the buzz it generates around the major conferences.  At Oracle World this year we've  5 days of  jam packed content based around Oracle ADF.  Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned pro, there will be content for you.  The biggest challenge will be fitting it all in!

Off to Oracle World and Why You Need to Pre-Register for Sessions!

Sunday I'm catching an early flight to San Francisco for the conference of the year, Oracle World.  Its a packed few days for me.  I'm literally off the plane, baggage, customs and then straight to the Moscone Center for the ADF EMG day.

Monday I have customer meetings, demo grounds and two presentations.  Tuesday, same again! By Wednesday all my sessions have been delivered so I might try and catch some of the other ADF and Forms presentations, although I have a 3 1/2 hour stint on the Forms demo ground.  Then Thursday its back home....oh, and there are a few parties to "meet and greet" each night.

So its going to be a pretty full on few days but its all worth while when I see how many people are pre-registered for my sessions.  Nearly 350 pre-registered for "Getting Started with Oracle ADF: What You Need to Know". "Quick Start Guide to Oracle Fusion Development with Oracle ADF" is already over 50% subscribed and both "What's Your Choice for Oracle Forms: Modernize, Upgrade, Integrate, or Migrate?" and "Redeveloping a Forms Application in Oracle ADF: A Case Study" have over 160 pre-registrations between them.

The lesson here is that if you really do want to see one of these sessions, get pre-registered.  Otherwise you might be disappointed...of course can you just turn up but you only get in once all of the pre-registered line gets seated first.

61 JDeveloper and ADF Sessions over 4 days!

I've just seen the schedule for Oracle World and there are 61 sessions on Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF, you read it right, 61 sessions!!  The quality of the sessions and speakers should mean that if you have any interest in Oracle ADF then you really must try and get yourself to Oracle World this year.  Its just a pity I'm spending most of my time presenting, demo ground duty or customer meetings; I'd love to be at some (all!) of these sessions.

Preregistration at my Oracle World Sessions

I've got a busy Oracle World 2011 this year with 4 sessions at which I am presenting.  These sessions are open for pre-registration and its good to see over 100 people already registered to attend.

  • Getting Started with Oracle ADF: What You Need to Know 
  • What's Your Choice for Oracle Forms: Modernize, Upgrade, Integrate, or Migrate? 
  • Quick Start Guide to Oracle Fusion Development with Oracle ADF
  • Redeveloping a Forms Application in Oracle ADF: A Case Study

There is going to be some great content this year.  Some of the sessions I would love to attend (if I can!) will be

  • Push to the Limit: Rich and Proactive User Interfaces with Oracle ADF
  • Angels in the Architecture: An Oracle Application Development Framework Architectural Blueprint
  • Four Ways to Transition from Oracle Forms to Oracle ADF Conference Session 
  • Real-World Performance Tuning for Oracle ADF Applications

There is also a FULL ADF day on the Sunday.  If you are involved in Oracle ADF projects (or will be) I think this is about the best way you could spend your training budget.
