Location matters: The new Map Region Type in APEX 21.1 by Carsten Czarski

This presentation introduces the new Map Region Type, which was introduced the latest APEX release 21.1. Attendees will learn, how to easily visualize location data from a SQL query or a REST Data Source on a map – all declarative, without manual coding and without external Plug-Ins.

The session will also cover how to integrate a Map region with other APEX region types like Charts, Reports or Faceted Search. Tips and tricks about visualizing larger amounts of data and how to leverage Oracle Spatial functionality will wrap the session

Securing your mission critical systems running Oracle from cyber attacks by Trichy Premkumar

Until recently, organizations have focused on trying to prevent cyberattacks, which come primarily from hacking and malware. However, the likelihood that all malware will be discovered before harm is done is slim, particularly for slow-moving and sophisticated attacks. This difficulty of detecting malware early gives hackers time to orchestrate attacks ranging from extortion to outright destruction of mission-critical systems. Such cyberattacks can cripple an organization, leading to revenue loss, negative publicity, and lasting customer distrust. In this session we will review how Oracle data protection can be simplified, secured and enhanced to include comprehensive cyber recovery protection.

Migrate Your Oracle Forms Apps to Oracle APEX by Monica Godoy

Oracle Forms is an established technology that has been popular for building data applications for decades. Today, there are several approaches for building such applications.
In this session, you will learn:
• How to use Oracle APEX to modernize your Oracle Forms-based applications.

• What you should do before starting this type of projects
• Demonstration from Forms to APEX

Running Oracle Databases on Containers and Kubernetes with Pure Storage by Chris Bannayan

Gartner predicts that by 2022, more than 75% of global organisations will be running containerised applications in production, up from less that 30% today. Businesses now, more than ever should be putting together a strategy of how they will embrace this world of containers and Kubernetes to optimise their workloads in the transforming world. See how Pure integration with Containers and Kubernetes, coupled with its simplicity, efficiency and performance will modernise your data centre, reduce your complexity and increase your agility, so that your business can focus more on innovating and less on managing.

During the session we’ll cover:

● How to create Docker containers using the Pure Storage plugin

● How to create persistent volumes using the Pure plugin

● How to create Oracle containers with persistent storage

● How to clone Oracle containers to create Dev/Test environments

● How to refresh Dev/test containers from a prod container

Modals and Popups and Dialogs, Oh My! …Which to Use When, How and Why by Karen Cannell

Learn the subtle and not-so-subtle distinctions between APEX modals, popups and inline dialogs: Which to use when, why to choose one over the other, and how to use them appropriately in your APEX applications. We will cover modal and non-modal dialog pages, inline dialog and inline popup region types, when to use a dialog page vs an inline dialog or popup, and caveats and challenges to be aware of with each element type. Emphasis is on use of declarative APEX elements and documented JavaScript APIs whenever possible, and best practices for employing these various elements in your APEX pages, including specifics for launching from interactive grids.

Low Code Development with Oracle APEX on Autonomous Database by Chaitanya Koratamaddi

Oracle APEX is the world’s most popular low-code application development platform for building and deploying modern data-driven applications. Business users and application developers can create enterprise apps 38X faster without having to learn complex web technologies. Gain hands on experience learning how the new APEX Service works to build a fully functional APEX app in less than an hour. Go from zero to hero in a ridiculously short period of time! This workshop includes two parts: Creating an App based on Existing Tables for Oracle Autonomous Cloud Services In this hands-on lab, you’ll learn how to quickly and easily build impressive apps on top of your existing data. Building an App using REST Data Sources for Oracle Autonomous Cloud Services In this hands-on lab, you learn how easy it is to build Oracle APEX apps utilizing RESTful Services. You learn how to create REST enabled database objects, and then use those REST endpoints as the basis for REST Data Sources within an application.

AUSOUG Webinar: What’s Your Super-Power? Mine is Machine Learning with Oracle Autonomous DB with Jim Czuprynski

“Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are a lot like preserving the Earth’s environment: Almost everyone is talking about what should be done to save it, but very few people have committed to actually doing something about it. This session demonstrates a few real-life opportunities to discover unseen patterns and relationships within sample financial and election data by leveraging the AI and ML capabilities already built into Oracle Autonomous Database. ”
