Two weeks from today (May 27th) the Suncoast Oracle Users Group (SOUG) will be hosting Stewart Bryson of RittmanMead America.
Mr. Bryson's presentation is titled, The OLTP DBA's Guide to Delivering a Dimensional Model.
Meeting information can be found here.
I haven't seen Mr. Bryson present yet but I have heard rumors.
Since I can't talk about Exadata, I'll express my thoughts through movie quotes:
BeerfestBarry Badrinath:"I wish it were winter so we could freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it and melt it in the spring time and drink it!"
Dumb and DumberLloyd:"The first time I set eyes on Exadata, I just got that old fashioned romantic feeling where I'd do anything to..."
Sea Bass' Friend: Kick his ass, Exadata!
APEX 3.2.1.00.12- Template 12Database: 10gR2
Just a quick note, mostly for myself.
I was asked about getting a report column to wrap. The method being used was the CSS Style property of the Report Attribute (Column). The report template was the Standard Alternating Row Colors.
The report looks like this:
Very ugly, I know.
Another, funny in hindsight, continuation on Gotcha #1.
Sadly I can't speak to the specifics of what I was doing but it did involve the coolest thing ever, Exadata.
We ran into some problems when are reports weren't returning the correct results. Specifically, year over year data (last year's).
I suspected one thing, someone else suspected another and a third person got it right.
I was playing a bit with the latest build of APEX 4.0 and they improved the wizard to create an app even more!
APEX 4.0 just got a new refresh with the latest build. The new build is Early Adopter 3 and has release number 4.0.0.00.33.
As we speed down our development path towards production release (in Calendar Year 2010) we have reached yet another milestone - Roll-out of Early Adopter III.Simply go to tryapexnow.com
This is our last planned version of the Early Adopter and includes many new features, numerous bug fixes, and a more refined user interface.
The third (and hopefully final phase) of Oracle Application Express 4.0 Early Adopter is now available. A new instance with the latest build of Application Express 4.0 is now available on http://tryapexnow.com.
by Alexis KolakI didn't have a whole lot of interaction with the IOUG staff (other than them giving me a hard time). I did meet a few of the volunteers.
Kudos to all the volunteers from every organization, thank you so much for giving your time to help make this event a success.
