Oracle silence

I didn't see a lot of news about Oracle and APEX in the last days.

The Oracle stocks are doing fine (see picture - evolution of last 6 months).

On the APEX site, the evaluation version 2.2 is still available. The APEX VP of Oracle said that after handling all feedback, the 2.2 release would be available to the public, first on afterwards as a download.

On Tuesday, I gave an overview of the presentations I followed at ODTUG to my team. They found it interesting topics and asked if the presentations were available as download. You can download the ODTUG presentations till the first of August on the ODTUG site.

Yesterday I went to a bbq of Edison, a publicity company in Leuven, BE. A few times a year they do an event with the employees, freelances and clients. My girl friend works as freelance for them and I could join her. It had nothing to do with Oracle, but it was interesting to see and hear how they see the market. They knew Oracle, but only from the logo and how they make publicity! I had an interesting conversation with Philip Maes, a known guy in the publicity world, about the different ways to make publicity. Doing pub on the radio is very different than doing pub on tv or in magazines. Although I didn't learn anything technical, it was very interesting to be there! And it was FUN!
