A few weeks ago, I spent my weekend in Nashville hosting Oracle workshops. The audience was composed mostly of end users. The hot topics (services-based integration, standardized UI look and feel, mobile apps) are related to Fusion Middleware. Luckily, ODTUG has an answer for that: the Fusion Middleware track at Kscope12.
We have some pretty hot topics on the agenda for the Fusion Middleware track:
- Combining ADF and report development has always been a challenge (for me, at least). We’ll have a great session on using open source tools to close that gap.
- UI design patterns have been grabbing a ton of attention lately. The Fusion Middleware track includes several sessions on bringing UI design patterns to ADF.
- Mobile: in recognition that the post-PC age is upon us, we’ve incorporated several sessions on mobile development.
- Oracle guru Jake Kuramoto (of AppsLab fame) will be showing us how to extend WebCenter.
So, you’ve likely been happily plugging along with your PL/SQL tools or your LAMP stack for years. They’ve grown near and dear to your heart. So why should you care about Fusion Middleware? Think back to that Nashville experience I just mentioned. Fusion Middleware gives you tools to provide what your customers want: services-based integration, that Fusion look-and-feel, and a great emerging platform for Oracle-related mobile apps development.
