Now that the chaos of Oracle OpenWorld and the craziness of Kscope15 abstract submissions are behind us, it’s time to get into the nitty gritty of where your Enterprise systems are headed. Mobile development plans are at the forefront of everyone’s minds right now, and if it’s not on your agenda then it’s time to get to work!

Another Oracle OpenWorld is behind us (when did it become October?) and as usual, it was fun to catch up with the members of my Oracle developer community, my ODTUG buddies and fellow ACEs. Cloud was definitely the hot topic on everyone’s mind this year, especially because Oracle announced their upcoming Oracle Mobile Cloud Services and released their Oracle Developer Cloud Service to production a few weeks before the (more...)

Every component got exactly the required color, except list-dividers in the Listview-Component looked a bit ugly.
Last post I wrote about evolution. Professional evolution… from legacy technology to new IT paradigms, cloud and mobile. This week, as a result of that evolution, the weather app I developed with a friend, was deployed and it’s available at App Store.
I hope users from Portugal and Brazil find (more...)
