New APEX conference: APEX Alpe Adria

During the recent SIOUG and HrOUG conferences past October, my friends Dario Bilić, Aljaž Mali and Dietmar Gabauer had a great Idea: why not establish a proper APEX conference for our neighborly region?

As soon as Dietmar returned to our office after the conferences, we set up a meeting with Dario and Aljaž and instantly agreed that we want to do this.

Our goal is to have a first class APEX conference, with top speakers from abroad and from the neighborhood. All that for a minimum cost. This conference should be accessible for every APEX fan in the region, even if they are not sponsored by their respective bosses and pay everything out of their own pocket.

There it is: April 20, 2018, will feature the first APEX Alpe Adria conference in Graz, Austria.

We picked Graz as first location as it is fairly easy to reach from a number of surrounding countries. So no matter if you want to come by plane, train, bus, or car, everyone will be able to get a connection.

Call for Papers is still open until January 9th, but we already pre-confirmed two top speakers: Patrick Wolf and Joel Kallman from the Oracle APEX Development Team.

I want to encourage all APEX speakers from anywhere in or around the Adriatic region to submit an abstract to this conference. Together we can provide a fantastic lineup and and interesting program.
We would like to see submissions from Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Serbia, Austria, Bosnia, Switzerland, and everyone else who wants to visit a beautiful town and be part of the best APEX conference in the region.

Lots of fun, a great community and new friends are guaranteed.

Did I mention the low cost of just EUR 30,- for the Early Bird tickets? Go and get your ticket right now, there is a limited number available.

Friday night i finally arrived after a long flight from Vienna to Washington to New Orleans, whereas the flights were pretty good, it is just that endless series of waiting lines that is tiresome.

Anyway, i’m here and – as usual – still working on my slides and demos with the hope to impress at least some of the attendees :-)

Kscope 12 in San Antonio

Last week the Kscope 12 Conference took place in San Antonio and myself had the big pleasure to be part of it.

I must say this is the best conference i ever attended. Not only because its far away from my home in Vienna, Austria. But more because it has so much to offer: good and interesting content, interested and interesting audience, good talks in between the sessions and a very good program around all that.
