Feb 14th, Developer Week in San Francisco, Oracle showed some <3 for developers and coincidentally, the keynote was on Valentines day. (aww!) The interesting thing about this keynote was that it not only discussed Oracle's vision for developers, but also showed a great end-to-end demo that showcased some of that vision in action. You might say it was a "talk the talk and walk the walk" keynote & demo, which seems appropriate when you (more...)

MCS, or Mobile Cloud Services, is Oracle’s relatively new PaaS tool for provisioning your data to mobile devices or IoT devices. And actually, it’s a pretty simple tool. MCS aims at simplifying the creation of mobile API’s (especially REST API’s) on existing or newly build web services. It delivers an enterprise Mobile Backend-as a-Service (MBaaS).
On top of that, mobile applications can be created. MCS supports natively build apps, hybrid apps or one of the no-code app development (more...)

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.
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...)
