At some point during APEX development you may find yourself putting an Oracle APEX page within an iFrame.
Just recently I did just that and came across an error I expected to see, but a little curious as to how it presented itself.
Refused to display '//myserver.com.au/ords/f?p=SAGE:1023:30559832045078' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'DENY'.
Kscope15 is insanely close and I'm very excited to be making the journey this year.
A few months ago I made a list of presentations that piqued my interest to try encourage a business colleague to come along. Maybe this list will encourage someone to join what I understand to be the world's best conference for APEX developers.

I'm sure we've all done it at some point or another, used some "feature" in the database you're probably not meant to.
Interactive reports still have a few misgivings prior to APEX 5 so some tried to utilise gReport object, since it was available in the generated page but undocumented - which in Oracle speak means that they're more than entitled to change behaviour in future without telling or supporting you.
I understand htmldb_Get put developers in a similar situation, but apex.server.process became a brilliant alternative.
Attention Perth Oracle technologists.
I'll be giving a dry run of my Kscope talk to the user group in Perth on May 28th, which happens to be the deadline for us to submit copies of our sessions to ODTUG.
So if you're in Perth, have any form of interest in APEX - come by the Oracle offices in near Kings Park by 8am, or come a bit earlier for a feed.
Evidence-Based APEX: Building Better Practices
The polish that comes with APEX 5 also extends to the generic login screen used for the Open Door Credentials authentication scheme.
This scheme is great for testing. It allows you to log into the application by supplying just a username, as if you logged in normally - saving on user management in test servers.
The login screen used isn't page 101, but a generic page generated via wwv_flow_custom_auth_std.login_page. Prior to APEX 5 the page looked rather ugly.

Tonight I stayed up way past my bedtime (well, in the days of writing a book and Kscope presentations, midnight isn't that late).
I watched and listened to Shakeeb Rahman from the APEX team on an ODTUG webinar, which was recorded and available for ODTUG members.
I did, however, take some notes. I thought I'd share:
Not shy about reference to Douglas Adams.
