DOAG Development - 4 Juni 2014

Nachdem ich die APEX World Konferenz verpasst habe, ist es nun an der Zeit endlich wieder aktiv zu werden.

Unter dem Deckmantel DOAG Development gibt es an einem Tag APEX pur zu genießen. Es gibt so viele APEX Vorträge das diese gleichzeitig in mehreren Räumen präsentiert werden.  Heißt, wer mich nicht hören will, hat genug Alternativen zur Auswahl. :)
