Attended this yesterday. I was terribly late, but Blair Layton did give a good presentation on Oracle technologies. I do not have much practical experience with websites that require hardware load balancing, a hundred web/database servers so I can’t comment on what 11g brings to the table, but I’ll certain explore the developer DVD they so kindly provided.
Also demo-ed was the Oracle Application Express, which is a step-by-step (simple) web application builder. From a CSV file, a CSS-styled, one-table application with list(sortable)/add/edit/delete functionality was built in a matter of minutes. That’s pretty impressive.
If you’d like to attend more of such events, do check out: blog.php.com.sg. The presentation was videoed, so the slides/video should be up on the website fairly quickly.
