Oracle Developer Choice Awards - 1 Week Left to Nominate

Oracle has launched its inaugural Developer Choice Awards. The deadline to nominate someone has been extended to August 21st so take advantage of this extension and nominate someone you think deserves recognition for the work they do with Oracle!

A description of the competition is below and you can find out more by going to the main site.

The Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards celebrate and recognize technical expertise and contributions in the Oracle Database community. As longtime and new users of Oracle Database move to the Cloud and take advantage of this exciting new architecture, community experts will play a critical role in helping them succeed.

For 2015, awards will be given out in the following technology areas:

  • SQL
  • PL/SQL
  • Oracle REST Data Services
  • Oracle Application Express
  • Database Design

We encourage you to nominate a developer you believe is deserving of this award. We are accepting nominations through August 21. A panel of judges, composed of Oracle ACEs and Oracle employees, will then choose a set of finalists.

But who chooses the winners? You do! The worldwide Oracle technologist community votes on the finalists from September 15 through October 15.

The winners of the Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards will be announced at the YesSQL! Celebration during Oracle OpenWorld 2015.

This is your chance to shine and earn highly deserved recognition for yourself or your respected peers.

APEX Meetup - Montreal this Thursday!

Note: The location for the Meetup has moved. Please check the meetup page for the new location.

For those in Montreal, I'll be presenting at the local #orclapex meetup this Thursday, August 13, evening from 5-7. All the information can be found on the meetup page.


APEX has a lot of excellent APIs. These APIs, for both PL/SQL and JavaScript, can help extend your application and improve your development. This presentation will cover some of the most useful APIs (both documented and undocumented) that are available.

The presentation will be in English however I can take questions in both French and English.

I look forward to meeting the Montreal APEX community!
