MAOP Tech Talk: Oracle HTML DB

I'll be presenting at the first MAOP (Mid-Atlantic Association of Oracle Professionals) TechTalk on Friday, October 21st, at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC at 1pm. My topic will be: Oracle HTML DB: Where Does it Fit?

In my presentation - which is my first public speaking engagement since leaving Oracle - I will be discussing all of the places that I have seen HTML DB used by a wide variety of customers - from Federal Government to Commercial, and everything and anything in between. I'll also spend some time going over what's new in Release 2.0.

If you're going to be in the DC area that Friday, please feel free to attend. NOTE: If you do plan on attending, please RSVP to mike.licht@casetech.net in advance, otherwise you will not be allowed into the buidling.

I'd love to hear it, but I don't live any where near that area...

Will you make an audio or video record of it? Will you have presentation slides available?

(Maybe you can pursuade them to convert their http://maop.org/ website into HTML DB? ;) )

Colin,

I don't believe that it will be recorded, but I will make my slides available after the session.

Thanks,

Just a suggestion, why not get an inexpensive MP3 player/recorder so any public meeting you attend or any presentation you give you can record it? Bsides making the result available to us, it might be useful for your own review.

I have one that is only slightly larger than the size of thumb drive.

By the way, I really enjoyed your Oracle OTN Techcast from the 19th August. I would come in handy for marketing later on! I hope there will be more material like it.

Colin,

Re: the MP3 player - I'll look into it, but I don't think I'll have the time to get one by this Friday.

Thanks,

Hi,

How about visting us in Cape Town, South Africa to do a presentation & also establish a HTMLDB presence here. With XE out this can become huge if promoted.
HTMLDB on XE is just what all the charities, poor upliftment computer training initiatives etc in this country need.

Hendrik,

Sorry, but no plans to visit South Africa in the short term. If you're interested in a web conference, please drop me a line at scott@sumnertech.com.

Thanks,

Whose Deck is it Anyways?

This year at KScope, we're going to try something new.  And fun.  And funny to watch - we hope.  It's called "Whose Deck is it Anyways?", and will occur on Sunday at 8:30pm.  It's only 30 minutes, but it will likely be the best 30 minutes of the conference.  Or at least the most embarrassing.

Here's what we're going to do: the will be four 5-minute presentations - one on each of the following: BI, EPM, Database & APEX.

Sound interesting?  Probably not.  We get that, too.  So here's what we did.

Each 5-minute session will be presented by a non-expert.  For example, it's highly likely that I'll be presenting on BI or EPM.

To make it even better, each slide deck will be prepared by the corresponding expert.  So again, it's highly likely that my slide deck's creator will be either Stewart Bryson or Edward Roske.  If nothing else, this session will be a crash course in how not to make cohesive, easy to read slides.

Interested now?  Ya,…

Spaced Out

A while back, I wrote about how to give the Universal Theme a face lift.  If you follow the steps in that post, the base font for an APEX application with the Universal Theme can easily be changed.

While that's all well and good, sometimes you only want to change the font for a report, not the entire page.  One of the applications that I'm building contains a number of IRs based mostly on log data.  Thus, having that data in a monospaced font would make it a whole lot easier to read.

You can search Google Fonts for monospaced fonts by selecting only that option on the right-side menubar.  You can also opt for the standard yet kinda boring Courier and achieve the same thing.

To implement this in your application, follow the steps in my other post, but stop shy of the final step.  Instead of pasting in the text that I specify, paste in the following to the Custom CSS field in Theme Roller, using the name of the font you selected for the font-family:

.a-IRR-table tr td { font-fam…

#fakecode

Unless you've managed to somehow filter out everything about US politics over the last few months (and if you have, please let me know your secret), then you've likely heard about "fake news".  From a high level, my basic understanding of "fake news" is that it refers to stories or websites that are fabricated to advance the political beliefs and/or ideologies of one site or the other.  Your definition may differ.

So what is fake code?  That, I can at least try to explain in a bit more detail.

The other day, I saw this image posted on Kris Rice's twitter feed:



I thought it was a joke, but it's actually a real book. That made me laugh.  Then cry.  Then I read the book, mainly since it's only 4 pages.  Believe it or not,  there's actually some really good content packed in there.  Let me summarize:

If you choose to copy code from Stack Overflow, the OTN forum, or anywhere, really, there's a few things to keep in mind:


Who owns the code.  It…
