Oracle OpenWorld is now officially over and it is time to look back at it from the perspective of JDeveloper and ADF.
I believe we can say that this was quite a revolutionary year from our perspective. There was a noticeable increase in the number of people that showed up to ADF related sessions. Something that you could see in both for beginner/overview level sessions as well as the deep technical sessions. Many of the ADF sessions crossed the 100 attendees line. For example the sessions that the ADF Enterprise Methodology Group held on Sunday and were all very well attended. This also meant that developers had a great opportunity to network with their peers and learn from the experience of others.We certainly met a lot of developers at the JDeveloper booth in the demoground that had a constant stream of people coming by.
It was also great to see the ADF based Fusion Applications finally rolling out and being demoed in the Moscone West Demoground.
Want to check out some of the great ADF content? Go to this page
and search for "ADF" you'll be able to get the slides for many of the
sessions. The one thing you will miss are the demos. And from what I
saw, almost every ADF session contained live demos
In summary - I do believe that this year proved that Oracle OpenWorld is the must attend conference for any ADF developer. The date for the next OpenWorld is already set - so it is time to start working with your boss to make sure you won't miss it.
Can't wait for the next OOW? then plan on attending ODTUG KScope 12 - June in San Antonio. Their call for papers is still open this week - so you might be able to get in on a speaker pass :-)
