Announcing the 2007 Application Express Training Conference

I'm excited to announce that Sumner Technologies, LLC in conjunction with ODTUG will be sponsoring a 2 or 3 day ApEx Training Conference sometime in early 2007. This training conference will be held in conjunction with Steven Feuerstein's PL/SQL conference. (http://oracleplsqlprogramming.com/opp2005.php)

Very few details have been worked out yet - heck, we don't even have a real name! What we do know is that we're targeting sometime in February 2007, most likely in San Francisco. The conference will also have some members of the Oracle ApEx Development team participating. I do not know how much it will cost at this point, either.

The format will likely be 1/3 lecture, 2/3 hands-on training. We have not finalized a list of topics yet. Please reply on this OTN Thread and let us know what you'd like to spend some time on - from themes to security, or anything in between.

Our thought was to cater to the more advanced users of ApEx, but I'd be interested to see if there are enough "newbies" who would consider attending if we were to offer an Intro to ApEx track.

More details to follow as they become available.

Scott, I'm very interested, but San Francisco is too far for me to travel. It would be nice if there were an East Coast location...

We'll keep that in mind, as I like the East Coast as well. As I said, nothing is 100% yet, but I can't promise any changes to the location either.

Hi Scott - I agree. Boston would be great. I'd attend for sure if it's in Boston.

If it's in Boston in February, I may not attend! :)

Since I don't control the price, I can't promise any discounts of any sort. Sorry! :(

However, the PL/SQL conference was $500/person, $450 if 3 or more were from the same company. I can assume that the ApEx conference will be priced in that range.

Thanks,

Any chance attendance could be possible remotely? I am in the UK.

Phil,

I don't believe that we will have remote access to this conference.

Thanks,

Scott,

I am definitely interested in attending the conference. San Fransisco would be OK with me or a central location too.

Please keep us informed.

Thanks, Andy

That is indeed a shame as I too am from the UK and learning Oracle App Ex .. always wanted to go to the States.
