Why there haven't been a lot of blogging here lately
By Shay Shmeltzer-Oracle on Sep 09, 2008
You might have noticed that I didn't blog for quite a while now.
The reason is OOW - this is always the busiest time of the year for us creating slides, developing demos for our sessions, and for me also managing the logistics for our team.
One other task that kept me busy the last couple of weeks was working on a JDeveloper 11g demo for the Monday keynote at Oracle Develop (10:15 at the Marriot).
If you are an application developer in the conference you should come and see this one. We are aiming this keynote to be mostly demos with minimal slides - and it will hopefully give you a sense of what you can do with our tools.
The nice part about building the demo is that I got to try out in more details some of the components that I didn't had the time to drill into in the past. Specifically the hierarchy viewer and the Geographical Map.
Those are two of our Data Visualization components and I must say I'm pleased at how easy they are to create and customize, and even more pleased with the end user experience they provide. They'll probably make it into some of my other demos at OOW sessions and the demoground.
In the meantime if you haven't already done so, add the monday keynote to your OOW schedule.
