Blogging and the Oracle Apps Community
By Steven Chan - EBS-Oracle on May 16, 2007
An interesting series of meta-discussions about blogging were triggered recently by Justin Kestelyn, OTN's Editor-in-Chief. For those interested in going meta, I'd recommend browsing through recent entries in his own blog.
- The Apps Traction Blog by Joel Asselin
Very interesting site from a functional consultant with a passion for working with Supply Chain modules. Recent articles of note include a massive set of practical tips and techniques for using Forms Personalization.
- Blak Geek Blog
Written by an anonymous Oracle University instructor, recent notable articles include a series on JServ troubleshooting, coverage on Release 12, and Linux migrations.
- Oracle Applications DBA by Atul Kumar and team
Frequently updated, Atul and team have been recently writing about their experiences with Oracle Identity Manager, Microsoft Active Directory and Oracle Internet Directory integration
- Oracle BI Publisher Blog by Tim Dexter
Tim's indefatigable coverage of XML Publisher (as it's known to Apps readers) is filled with tips, tricks, techniques, and insights into using this Swiss-army-knife of a tool. Recent articles cover barcodes, charts, templates, bursting... As a fellow Oracle blogger, I wonder how Tim manages to squeeze in time to blog on XMLP while pumping out new releases.
- My Oracle EBS Dba Blog by Bas Klaassen
Reading Bas's blog gives one the impression of peeking into his personal DBA notebooks. He meticulously documents things he's tried, along with any error messages encountered, and follows up with solutions.
- Global Oracle Contractors Network
With a diverse team of contributors, this blog covers a wide range of Apps-related functional and sysadmin topics, with a hearty dose of business philosophy, to boot.
- ORCLville by Floyd Teter
As an active member of the OAUG Fusion Council, Floyd has recently been sharing his thoughts and speculations about Fusion Applications and their implications for existing E-Business Suite users. Remember that Oracle employees, including myself, are specifically prohibited from speculating about future releases. As such, I'm always fascinated by what people are gleaning from the information that we've shared publicly so far.
If you have an Apps Technology-related blog (or any blog, for that matter), make sure that you:
- Register it with Technorati, so that readers can find you.
- Drop me a line. I'll follow your posts, and will add blogs with regularly updated content on the E-Business Suite to my public blogroll, too.
