Presenting at OGh APEX World 2015

On March 25th 2015 at the beautiful venue of the former cruise ship SS Rotterdam, the next edition of APEX World by the Dutch Oracle Users Group (OGh) will take place.

SS Rotterdam

There is a long list of very interesting speakers there. David Peake, Steven Feuerstein, Joel Kallman, Dimitri Gielis, John Scott and Peter Raganitsch, just to name a few, have been selected to deliver presentations and keynotes at this event. And I’m proud to say that my name is also on that list.

I’m planning to do a presentation based on the following abstract:

APEX and SOA – The best of two worlds
Many companies have invested in an APEX application or a Service Oriented Architecture. But why not use both? In this presentation we will see the possibilities offered by APEX and the Oracle SOA Suite to communicate and integrate with eachother.

I hope to see a lot of familiar faces there and also a lot of new faces that want to learn more about this subject.

If you would like to attend, more information can be found on the OGh website. There are still some seats left, but they are going fast!
