Introducing OraOpenSource
As some of you know,  I have been out since last June recovering from a concussion. It has been a very long and lengthy process that has really pushed my limits. The good news is that I'm getting better and have been able to increase my computer time. Which...

#TourKscope
In January the ODTUG board had a meeting. During the trip I took some time to explore Seattle, the hotel, and conference centre. Here's a summary of the tweets that I sent out. If you're in Seattle and looking for things to do this should help. @cheesecake ...

NTILE vs WIDTH_BUCKET
Rick Cale recently asked a question on an article I wrote two years ago about Some Interesting Oracle Analytic Functions . His question (see comments on Apr 11, 2014) were about the results from the NTILE function and how the same value could be in two diff...

Running Custom Code for Tabular Forms (Part 1)
One of my biggest pet peeves with Tabular Forms in APEX is that it would only run basic (Insert, Update, Delete) DML functions against a table. This works really well for basic situations but more often than not data must be processed by a procedure to hand...

APEX 5.0 and KScope 14
A few weeks ago the Oracle APEX team released APEX 5.0 EA1 (Early Adopter). You can try the new version of APEX at  apexea.oracle.com . I expect that the APEX team will release an EA2 and possible EA3 version before officially launching APEX 5.0 with the fi...

My Early Departure From Kscope 14
Unfortunately I had to cut my Kscope 14 trip short. I had hit my head pretty hard right before leaving for Kscope and it turns out I gave myself a "mild" concussion. I'm not sure why they call it mild since it really threw me off. If you've ever had a concu...

#Get2Kscope
Back in January we had an ODTUG board meeting in Seattle at the same location of Kscope 14 . Instead of taking a taxi to the hotel, I decided to use the train that brings you 1 block away from the hotel and I'm glad I did! It only cost me $1.75 USD and I av...

oracleapex.com (part 2)
Back in December I blogged about the new domain: oracleapex.com . I used the domain to host shortcuts to common links for APEX. One example that I use on a regular basis is api.oracleapex.com which points to the latest API APEX documentation. Initially I us...
