In a matter of days, customers, partners, employees... and everyone else related to the Oracle ecosystem will converge on San Francisco for the 2016 edition of the Oracle OpenWorld conference. This is by far the most comprehensive Oracle conference of the year, covering both applications and technology. I am really looking forward to attending this year as an Oracle partner. Since I won't be working the Oracle demo grounds, please feel free to stop me (more...)
The PeopleCode language has a lot of features and functions. But sometimes, it seems there are tasks we need to accomplish that are just out of reach of the PeopleCode language. It is at these times that I reach for Java. I have written a lot about Java, so I'm sure many of you already know how to mix Java with PeopleCode. While certainly a rational solution, one of the pain points of a Java (more...)

I just wanted to post a quick note with my schedule for Collaborate 2016. I will be presenting PeopleSoft Developer Tips and Techniques on April 13th at 9:15 AM in Reef C. My publisher assured me that I will have a box of books waiting for me at the conference and we plan to give them away at various sessions during the conference. Here are a couple of other sessions I recommend attending at Collaborate:
HEUG Alliance is next week. I hope you are registered. I know this will be a fun and informative conference (as always). I am scheduled for two sessions at Alliance:
- PeopleSoft Developer: Tips and Techniques on Monday at 3:30 PM in room 6B/C and
- PeopleSoft Meet the Experts on Tuesday at 10:15 AM in room 307/308 table 2.
When I'm not in sessions, you will find me in the demo grounds. Stop by and say "Hello!"
I will be in Calgary next week presenting PeopleTools topics at the Western Canada Regional Users Group meeting. My sessions are at 1 PM and 2:15 PM. See you there!

Just a couple more weeks and we will be enjoying the great weather and hospitality of San Francisco. I am anxiously anticipating another great OpenWorld conference.

I received notice yesterday that our latest book, PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Mobile Applications Development (Oracle Press) 1st Edition, is now shipping. Probably the most exciting news is that Amazon has the book listed as the #1 New Release in the Oracle Databases category.
Have you seen the new PeopleTools Spotlight series? I just finished the Developing Fluid Applications lesson. This 1-hour video walks you through creating a fluid component, including some of the special CSS style classes, such as
psc_column-2. The example is very well done and should get new fluid developers headed down the right path.
It is just a little less than a month until the PeopleSoft ReConnect conference in Rosemont, Illinois. I will be presenting PeopleTools Developer: Tips and Techniques on Thursday from 11:30 AM to 12:20 PM in Grand Ballroom H.
My wife and I have been writing another book. We are reviewing proofs now, which means we are getting close to publication. I did a quick search on Amazon and see that Amazon is taking pre-orders: PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Mobile Applications Development. Publication date is currently set for October 16, 2015, which means it will publish just before OpenWorld. Fluid and MAP have been out for about a year. If you guessed that a new PeopleTools (more...)
The HIUG Interact conference is one of my favorite annual PeopleSoft conferences. I learn a lot from the customer and partner presentations delivered each year. As always, my highlight is interacting with customers.All of my presentations are now available through the HIUG conference site. Be sure to download the slides because these slide decks contain a lot of information we didn't have time to cover in our sessions. For reference purposes, here is a (more...)
Collaborate 2015 is just a few weeks away. I will be presenting PeopleSoft PeopleTools Developer: Tips and Techniques on Tuesday, 4/14/2015 at 3:15 PM in Surf B. If you are presenting a PeopleTools technical session, then please post a comment with your session title, date, time, and venue. I look forward to seeing you next month!
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Alliance conference in Nashville next month. I was just reviewing my schedule and see lots of interesting technical sessions (as always). If you have room in your schedule, I invite you to attend my session on Tuesday, Mar 17, 2015 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM in Presidential D. The session is titled PeopleSoft PeopleTools Developer: Tips and Techniques. See you in a few weeks!
OpenWorld is only a couple of weeks away. As always, this promises to be an outstanding conference. Whether your focus is functional or technical, OpenWorld has a lot of PeopleSoft sessions. The Focus on PeopleSoft OpenWorld document contains a good list of PeopleSoft focused sessions and events. I look forward to seeing you at OpenWorld this year. Here are some of the places and times where you can find me:
