Oracle Forms at UKOUG Tech13 – Modernization in Manchester

Well my bags are packed and I’m ready to go ….
I am actually busy packing for my trip to Jolly old England, Manchester to be exact, for the UKOUG Tech13 conference.

The agenda could not be any better for a Forms to Java/ADF evangelist like myself. I have put down below my top picks for the conference sessions if you are a Forms lover like myself. I hope to see you all there.

And as always if anyone wants to meet up for a coffee or beer (am versus pm) you can comment below!
