My Public Event Schedule at OOW

If you’re going to Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) next week, I’d love to meet you. As of now, I’m going to be at 3 public (as in, I’ll be there in a capacity where I’ll be accessible, not just as an audience member) events:

An ADF “Methodology for the Masses”

I’m pleased to announce that I’m going to be an “expert” in an Oracle OpenWord Unconference workshop session to develop an ADF Methodology for the now-in-technical-preview release 11g based on an end-to-end ADF technology stack (ADF BC/ADF Model Layer/ADF Task Flows/ADF Faces RC). This session was the brainchild of Oracle Fusion Middleware ACE Director and blogger Chris Muir, and will feature quite a number of Oracle ACEs and other ADF experts. My particular focus (in the sense of what I’m preparing for the most–the vast majority of the session is going to be in open workshop format) is architecting for reusability.

People of all levels of ADF experience are welcome–from novices who want to learn others’ ideas for solving methodological problems to experts who want to contribute their own. So if you’re going to be at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco this year, wander across the street and check it out–just let us know you’re coming. Oh, and if you want to watch/participate in our advance discussion, you’re more than welcome to join our Google group.

My Next Book Is up on Amazon

…well, sort of. They don’t have the title correct, and Dr. Paul Dorsey probably won’t be joining us (me, Peter Koletzke, and Duncan Mills) in this project, but you can sign up to be notified about Oracle JDeveloper Fusion Development – A Handbook for 4GL Developers on Amazon now. It’s being written against the upcoming JDeveloper/ADF 11g release.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
