Thinking Anew

That Time of the Year

Chicago Skyline

We now have less than a week before Kscope 16 abstract submissions close. Have you submitted yours yet? If not, please spend a few minutes to consider the following reasons why you should:

  1. Sharing is good
  2. The best way to know a topic is to teach/present it
  3. A complimentary free ticket to visit Chicago
  4. An opportunity to mix with the best and brightest, and as they say in Chinese: 近朱者赤,近墨者黑 English translation of 近朱者赤,近墨者黑
  5. Collectibles galore

And for the Oracle Application Express (#orclapex) crowd:

  1. Get to meet the APEX development team in-person to report a bug say: “Thank You!”
  2. Attend, or better still, take part in APEX Open Mic Night
  3. Drink beer and play poker
    I have been submitting abstracts each year since I was first introduced to the conference in 2011. Haven’t had much success, but as with every life lesson… it’s not only about the result, the process leading to it is equally as important. Each year, the submission process challenges me to think of innovative ways to build better APEX applications.
