My KScope APEX Watchlist

I'm sure you know by now that we're in the home stretch. KScope will be upon us in a hurry. This year will be particularly special as it will be my last as President and Board member. I will miss it, no doubt, but I'm excited to see what the future holds for our favorite little users group.

For me, KScope has really become a series of meetings. We meet as a Board. We meet with the various Oracle development teams. We meet with the other user groups in attendance. It doesn't leave much time to attend sessions, but it's not often we're all in the same room so we try our best to take advantage of that opportunity.

Looking at the list of APEX sessions. All I can say is WOW. From the Sunday Symposiums where Joel promises we'll wreck this thing together to Scott Wesley bringing us home with a Thursday Deep Dive into CSS and jQuery, it's an OUTSTANDING lineup. Roel Hartman and the APEX content team should be applauded.

If you can find a conference anywhere with a better APEX lineup...attend it. In fact, take me with you.

I think you made a small typo, Monty - In the last section (the three separate presentations) the title and presentor don't match.. (APEX, Node.js, and HTML5: Magic!
Rafael Rodriguez).

Thanks, Alex. It has been remedied. I was going to refer to you as "Newbie" Nuitjen, but thought better of it.

Compared to you, I'll always be a Newbie :)
