Attending Collaborate #C13DEN? Don’t Miss This Oracle Forms Modernization Event

All of you Oracle Forms developers should be very pleasantly surprised by the content and events lineup at this year’s Collaborate 13 in Denver, CO.

The most notable of which is the event the Oracle Forms Community will be hosting with AuraPlayer, PITSS and ECSTeam under the theme

I’m lucky that I will be presenting a session called,  Moving Forward with Oracle Forms: What Now? What’s Next?, at 12:15 pm on Wednesday,  April 10, so those of you who’ll have a few at the networking event will still be able to make it :). My session will provide Oracle Forms / EBS users with the essential information on how to move forward with their Forms investment.  I will discuss how to modernize existing systems by integrating or migrating them to Oracle’s next generation technologies. We will explore   modernization options, creating integrated systems, and running Oracle Forms via ADF Mobile. We will also  review how to plan for the future with regard to Oracle development technologies.

Besides my session there are several other interesting  Forms to ADF sessions.  On Monday, April 8 at 2:30 pm  there is Building Hybrid Oracle Forms and ADF Applications by Gavin Woods and Martin Disterheft from PITSS.  On Tuesday, April 9 at 10:45 am we have Oracle ADF &JDeveloper for Forms Developers by John King from King Training Resources. And on Monday, April 8 at 9:45 am  Oracle ADF – What it is and why it is important to you will be held by Shay Shmeltzer, Senior Group Manager at Oracle.  These sessions along with my own,  Moving Forward with Oracle Forms: What Now? What’s Next? , should give you a good overview of where Oracle is going with their Oracle Forms directions.

In addition to these I’d suggest attending these sessions for a good introduction to the next generation Oracle development tools

  • Getting Started with ADF —Monday, April 8, 11:00 am, Chad Thompson, Zirous, Inc.
  • APEX – A Training Outline — Wednesday, April 10, 3:00 pm, Patrick Cimolini, Patrick International APEX Consulting
  • Developing On-device Mobile Applications with Oracle ADF Mobile — Tuesday, April 9, 8:00 am, Joe Huang, Oracle

Finally these sessions are a good introduction to ADF development for EBS users

  • Oracle ADF for OAF Developers — Monday, April 8, 3:45 pm, Shay Shmeltzer, Oracle
  • Develop, Integrate, and Use: Oracle ADF with Oracle E-Business Suite the SOA way — Monday, April 8, 2:30 pm, also delivered by Shay Shmeltzer of Oracle

You can pre-register for these events on the Collaborate 13 IOUG website. Click here for details.

And as in any conference the most interesting part is of course the exhibition ground. There you come and drop by Booth 1080 to learn more about Oracle Forms modernization from our partners, ECSTeam and PITSS.  Whether it be upgrading to Forms 11g, migrating to ADF/APEX, running Forms on mobile/tablet environments, or improving system performance, we can help you solve ALL your Oracle Forms challenges. You’ll probably find me hanging out there so stop by to say hello.

In any case, I’d be happy to meet any of you one-on-one to do a demo or have a consultation on Forms to Mobile at Collaborate 13.  To set up a meeting, contact us.

I look forward to seeing you all in Denver at Collaborate 13!
