Oracle APEX Cookbook Second Edition

After months of hard work, Marcel van der Plas and I have finally finished the Second Edition of our Oracle APEX Cookbook.
Two new chapters and many new recipes describe how to build even better APEX applications.
The first new chapter is on HTML5 and CSS3 and explains how to use new item types, templates and much more.
The other new chapter explains how to build applications for Mobile devices like Smartphones.

To ensure the quality of the book, many well-known names from the Application Express community have helped to review the book. People like Dimitri Gielis, Maarten van Luijtelaar and Surachart Opun reviewed the first edition. To this line-up the names of Learco Brizzi, Iloon Ellen-Wolff, Ronald Rood, Tony Jedlinski and Benjamin Kweku Intsiful have been added.

The book can be purchased on the website of Packt Publishing and many other webstores.
