Can you think of anyone worthy of being recognised in the following areas?
Now she ventures into the world of blogging. She'll no doubt talk about Oracle development in some form, either SQL, PL/SQL, APEX, or for some bizarre reason, JDeveloper.
But who knows where blogging leads, huh? Check her out at
One of my favourite features in APEX 4.x was the search bar, often not actually for searching but for opening another page by typing the page number, particularly coming from shared components.
At Kscope I felt geographically isolated, but I was impressed with all the second language speakers attending.
I can only speak one language, and some would argue I don't do well at that - but people were presenting in a language foreign to their native tongue! Kudos.
During the APEX 5 early adopter I remember a bit of discussion going around regarding the colour contrast.
I would have been one of the complainers, and it's one topic I forgot to raise with the team when I met them at Kscope.
Use of APEX 5 is ramping up at my current site and I couldn't go any further without having a little play. A while ago I used some filters in my ad blocker extension to trim the fat from the OTN forums pages.
Do you ever get bored? I do.
What do you do when you're bored? I eat. I think. I watch.
Sometimes I play on my phone. I whip it out, play some quizzes, read some feeds, send a text.
What I prefer to do is watch the world. There's plenty going on, I walk through a nearby bush regularly and sometimes it's almost like I'm absorbing pleasantness, contentment.

Another item on my backlog is getting up to date on my favourite podcasts. I've got a post drafted that lists my recommendations, but if you're looking for a fun, well produced science podcast then go no further than The Skeptics Guide to the Universe.
They are generally 90 mins an episode and if you're not into podcasts already that may seem daunting. To me they fill my commute with fun but thought provoking stuff in lieu of commercial radio, which I'm sure causes ear cancer.
