Having just re-read quite a few of my previous blog posts (especially the last two), I can see that over the last while I’ve been a bit restless and unsettled.
Looking back over my career recently I realized that I've been doing consulting for probably 20+ of my 28 year tenure. I don't regret any part of it as it's taken me all over the world, introduced me to some amazing people and given me hundreds of memorable work and personal experiences.
But if I look at the last 10 years, the things that I've most enjoyed have not been consulting. For instance:
On September 13th I got a nice surprise, an email of Steven Feuerstein with the message: "You have been selected as a finalist in the ORDS category for the 2015 Oracle Database Developer Choice Awards!"
It's always nice to get recognition for the efforts you do, so thanks so much already for the nomination. I didn't make publicity yet in order to get some up-votes, but I hope by reaching out to the people who read my blog, I gain some more up-votes :)
Damit Tools wie - Oracle Spatial Reader - FeatureReader - OracleQuerier - GeoServer mit Oracle Spatial Tabellen arbeiten können, müssen diese in einer Meta-Schicht bekannt gemacht werden. Dies ist im Prinzip ganz einfach, denn dazu muss nur die View USER_SDO_GEOM_METADATA gefüllt werden.
In the first part of October, my colleague Vlad Uvarov and I are taking the Oracle APEX & Oracle Database Cloud message to a number of user groups who are graciously hosting us. These are countries for which there is growing interest in Oracle Application Express, and we wish to help support these groups and aid in fostering their growing APEX communities.
in June I gave a talk at the ODTUG KScope conference regarding the optimal setup of Oracle ORDS for Oracle Application Express: Setting Up the Oracle APEX Listener (Now ORDS) for Production Environments
You can access the slides certainly through the ODTUG site. They have even recorded the presentation and made it available to their members.
