Seems like at least half of the Oracle blog sphere is already at the annual ODTUG conference.
I'm only going to get there tomorrow for a short but very intensive gig. I have 3 sessions on Wed and a hands-on lab on Thu.
Reading the posts from the conference it seems there are a lot of very technical sessions going on, so I wanted to set the expectations correctly for the 3 sessions I'm going to deliver on Wed.
All my sessions are going to be about release 11 of JDeveloper - and as such they won't be a deep dive into a specific use-case I implemented in a specific project - they'll be technical overviews of what's coming up next and will help you better be prepared for the future. (Don't worry it's not all slides - all of them will feature real live application development demos with a risk of things not working to keep a high suspension level).
The sessions I'm doing and why you might want to attend them:
Overview of JDeveloper 11 - if you are not familiar with JDeveloper at all, or if you are interested to know what are the new features in release 11 of JDeveloper.
Building Web 2.0 UI Simplified - an overview of ADF Faces Rich client components. If you are confused about Ajax and how it will influence your development efforts, and if you want to understand what type of functionality our new components offer and how you develop with them.
ADF Business Components: Powerful Database Interaction for Java Applications - First half is an introduction to ADF BC and when and why they are the right choice for your Java applications. The second half will be about the new features we added in release 11.
By the way if you are working with ADF today or just about to start working with ADF - don't miss Duncan session which deep dives into the ADF Binding layer - something that I wish every ADF Developer can attend.
Oh, and if you never experienced developing with JDeveloper and ADF catch the hands-on-lab on Thu morning about the Fusion development experience. (Don't go to the one on Wed afternoon, cause then you'll miss all my sessions :-) )
