Dynamic Action Instant Immersion
Dan McGhan, Enkitec

JavaScript is the programming language that brings web applications to life. But for most Oracle developers using Application Express (APEX) to build web-based front ends for their databases, learning JavaScript can be quite an undertaking. Enter Dynamic Actions, a feature of APEX that provides a declarative interface over JavaScript. This hands-on mini-class is designed to give students a jump start when beginning with the Dynamic Action framework. Attendees will bring their own laptops and be provided access to an APEX workspace with an application just begging for some Dynamic Action enhancements. Attendees will start with the very basics and quickly move on to solving more complex tasks based on real business requirements. Along the way, related concepts, such as jQuery selectors and event propagation will be explained to provide a background for understanding the various options within the framework. 

About Dan: Dan McGhan is Senior Technical Consultant at Enkitec. In addition to his "day job", he is one of the top contributors to the APEX forum, maintains his own Oracle and APEX blog at danielmcghan.us, and is a regular presenter at various events and user group meetings including Oracle Open World and ODTUG's Kscope & APEXposed. Dan is an Oracle Application Express Certified Expert, an Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate, as well as an Oracle ACE.

Developing Faster Performance Solutions: Make Oracle Work for You!
Craig Shallahamer, OraPub, Inc.
Oracle DBAs find it difficult to get complete and correct information about how the database engine works. Even when bits of truth are collected, consolidating the data into a useful performance optimizing solution is complicated. When a diagnosis is incomplete or the DBA doesn't understand why a solution improves performance, solution creation becomes a guessing game resulting in haphazard performance improvement. In this seminar you will learn how selected areas of Oracle work together. Care is given as to why performance solutions work and how to make them usable and practical in a complex and highly available production environment.

About Craig: Craig Shallahamer is a researcher, writer, and teacher of DBAs spanning 6 continents and more than 25 countries. He has published over 23 technical papers, authored the book, Forecasting Oracle Performance, and is the creator of the revolutionary Oracle Performance Firefighting and Oracle Forecasting & Predictive Analysis courses. During his 9 years with Oracle Corporation Craig co-founded the Core Technologies and the System Performance Groups. He combines an entertaining presentation style with his depth of Oracle experiences to make each class unique.
