Chorus: a Fully Buzzword-Compliant Slide Webapp

Most of the time, I hack applications together because I have an itch that badly needs scratching. But, sometimes, I also build up apps for the sake of trying out and experimenting with new technologies. The process I’m following for those latter apps is what I call Awesome Driven Development, or A.D.D. for short. Basically, [...]

An early adopter version 1.1 of the Apex Listener was released a while back.

Direct NFS Clonedb

Direct NFS Clonedb is a feature in 11.2 that you can use to clone your databases. Kevin Closson explains what it is in this post.
