Developer Day, Tweeting, Hyperion, ADF, RAC

Developer Day

Grant's blog informs us that there is an Oracle Developer Day coming up on May 28th. You can join grant there to discuss JDeveloper, ADF and a host of other topics.

Oracle Tweets

No, not those free breakfasts you get at Oracle events and education, but Twitters and Tweeters, the latest thing. I have to admit to being a slow adapter on this one, but Chris Warticki is way ahead of me, and points to a list of Oracle-related tweeters.

Hyperion: Kaleidescope

The Look Smarter Than You Are Blog brings us news of a conference a lot of you will not want to miss: Kaleidescope 2009 . What's really exciting is that we'll have the Hyperion product managers there on Sunday's Developer Symposium talking about the roadmaps for their products over the next year or two. A lot of you have asked for a webinar on precisely that, and this is an opportunity to go several steps beyond that and speak directly with the managers, 'en masse'. 


 I wish more developers would think like Luc Bors over at the AMIS Technology blog who posts about ADF 11g - Invoke a Popup from a Popup. I hate to dialog with software that doesn't want to share status information with me, and Luc's article will help your popup interface be more helpful to users.


Here at the Infogram we are known for providing real information for real users, nothing dressed up or propagandized (well, not much, anyway). So I point you to H. Tonguç Yılmaz 's article on a RAC Aware Software Discussion. He raises many good points. I never specialized in working with RAC, but I've been 'messing around the edges' of the product since it was still called Oracle Parallel Server. The need to design hardware configurations and customize applications to take advantage of OPS used to be a major part of the design and implementation effort. It's less of a challenge now, but still has its moments, as you can read in Tonguç's posting. He also gives a nice list at the bottom of some of his favorite resources.
