I’m speaking at the German Oracle user group conference this week. This is one of the two big Oracle user group conferences in Europe and they have good technical content for Oracle developers. I’ve attended Forms, APEX, ADF and Oracle JET presentations, and it’s interesting to observe the differences between the communities.
- Oracle Forms developers are proud professionals who take their responsibility for keeping critical applications running very seriously
- Oracle APEX developers want to be cool and use every new technology with APEX (Docker, Alexa, etc). There is lots of hand-waving enthusiasm and an “open mic” show.
- Oracle ADF developers know they have selected the best tool and wonder why not everybody is using it
- There aren’t really any Oracle JET developers yet, but there is a lot of interest in learning this technology
