ICYMI (in case you missed it), a team from Oracle has been hard at work these few months churning out a bunch of Vagrant configuration files and scripts that help you provision some really cool virtual machines (VM), powered by Oracle Enterprise Linux.

That's right! Here's the customary post-Kscope article. This year though, is one Kscope to remember! Along with other Oracle Application Express (APEX) community members, I had the surprise honour of joining the ranks of the Oracle ACE Program. And so I wanted to start off by first thanking newly-minted Oracle ACE Director Opal Alapat. Last year, I had deep suspicions that she was responsible for my ODTUG Volunteer Award. Then came the ACE Associate nomination.
Opal, if you are reading this: THANK YOU!

The much anticipated Oracle Application Express version 18.1 was announced on May 24, 2018.

With Digital Ocean (DO) lowering their prices to match Linode's, I thought it would help the community if I created a similar set of instructions to deploy OXAR on DO. I took this a step further and have provided a branch on the Github repository with a modified Vagrantfile.
ICYMI, early access for Oracle Application Express was opened for workspace requests erlier this month. Like every other APEX fan out there, I was of course eager to get my hands dirty. Guess what was the first upcoming feature I took for a test drive?
