Preparing for Oracle Openworld

San Francisco will once again turn red for Oracle Openworld (October 11 - 15).

As always the APEX Development team will be there in force manning our three booths in the Demo Grounds (Moscone West) and delivering Hands-On Labs and Sessions. For further details on the hands-on labs and sessions see the APEX Conference Sessions application. Be warned there is only limited space in the hands-on labs and some of them are already full - so act fast if you want to get in.

If you are attending Oracle Openworld then make sure you stop by the demo grounds where you can speak directly to our wonderful developers and see first hand demonstrations of both existing APEX functionality and features being developed for APEX 4.0. {Monday 10:30 - 6:30, Tuesday 10:30 - 6:30, Wednesday 9:15 - 5:15}

Before you ask - NO we can't tell you the dates when APEX 4.0 will be available other than calendar year 2010 and YES we are planning to have a public Early Adopter program that everyone can participate in.

As you will see there is a huge amount of new functionality in APEX 4.0 - and even those who saw our progress at ODTUG Kaleidoscope will see many changes. We were hoping to have an Early Adopter available around this time of year, but you will have to be patient with us while we finalize our development. Once ready we will announce the Early Adopter on the APEX OTN Forum and on the blogs.

Also don't forget about the APEX Meet-up Dimitri Gielis is organizing on Tuesday @ 7:30 pm at the Fourth Street Bar & Grill.

Look forward to seeing you there.

The screenshot looks really promising!

A cleaner interface and a bunch of new features like build-in Team Development... wow!

The only thing I'm surprised of is I don't see a websheets button... so we should see that as a complete separate product/app?

Or is there something in migrations to go from Websheets to APEX?

I've some many more questions about 4.0, I'm sure I'll pop by the demo ground ;-)

Very observant!

There is no longer a Websheet button as it is integrated into Application Builder.

Look forward to catching up with you in SF.

Hi David

Glad I saw the Team Development feature. I had just started to build a Scrum application.

It's on hold until I learn more about Team Development.

Just one question mate. When will APEX 4.0 be available... :)

Oh yes, and when will it be available?



PS. Do you know when it will be available?

See you at OOW :)
