Working Orange (Updated)

Thu, 2014-02-20 09:34
On Thursday, February 27th Thursday, March 6th, I will be taking over @WorkingOrange - the Syracuse University Career Services Twitter account.


WorkingOrange was created to allow Syracuse alumni from all fields to share what it is they do on a typical day, as well as interact with students, other alumni and anyone else.  It is typically active each Tuesday and Thursday, and has hosted alumni from all kinds of industries.  For example, today is an elementary school teacher, and this past Tuesday was a producer for a TV station in Philadelphia.

I encourage everyone to follow along here: http://www.twitter.com/workingorange or just follow @WorkingOrange  More information on SU's Career Services can be found here: http://careerservices.syr.edu

UPDATE: due to a scheduling issue, I've been reassigned to Thursday, March 6th.

Upcoming Conferences for 2014

Tue, 2014-02-04 12:43

It’s that time of year again: Conference Season!  There’s a few conferences that fall in the 1st few months of the year that I try to present at each year, and this year is no different.  Here’s where I’ll be presenting at over the next few months:

  • RMOUG - Denver, CO - February 5th - 7th
    At RMOUG this year, I’ll be co-presenting a new session called “Creating a Business UI in APEX” with Jorge Rimblas.  I’m very excited about this session, as there is a lot of practical and easy to use information packed into it about user interface design - something most APEX developers have little experience in.  I’ll also be a part of the Oracle ACE Lunch & Learn on Friday, so if you want to talk APEX, come and find my table.
  • UTOUG - Sandy, UT - March 12th & 13th
    This year at UTOUG, I will be presenting “Intro to APEX Security”.  Given that APEX 5.0 is out in at least an EA release, I hope to incorporate what’s new in addition to what APEX 4.2 and prior have to offer.

  • GLOC - Cleveland, OH - May 12th & 13th
    I’ll be quite busy at GLOC this year, with at least two sessions: the aforementioned “Intro to APEX Security”, as well as a 3-hour hands-on session entitled “APEX Crash Course”.  This session will be aimed at those new or relatively new to APEX, and walk the participants through building a few working applications - both desktop and mobile.

    Note: GLOC abstract submission closes this Friday, so there’s still time to submit if you’re interested!

  • KScope - Seattle, WA - June 22nd - 26th
    As usual, KScope will be the busiest conference of the year for me, with 3 sessions, Open Mic Night, Lunch & Learns, booth duty and who knows what else.  In addition to “Creating a Business UI in APEX” and “Intro to APEX Security”, I’ll be holding a Deep Dive session on Thursday entitled “APEX Security Deep Dive”.  This session will take a more thorough look at the inner workings of APEX’s security, and is meant for those who are comfortable with APEX.

I’m sure as the year goes by, there will be additional conferences: MAOP, VOUG, ECOUG and OOW are all events that I typically attend.  Hope to see some of you at one them!
