Highlights From The Bright Lights - Sunday

Sunday, the first day of Collaborate 10, was probably the best conference kickoff I've ever experienced. And that's mostly because "Oracle Fusion Architecture: Soup To Nuts" absolutely rocked! Some of the highlights (and these were tough to choose, simply because the whole seminar was a series of one highlight after another):

- an ADF application built from scratch in 10 minutes
- a great give-and-take exchange on AIA
- a BPEL process built from scratch
- a use case on SOA uptake, where we learned that communication and coordination were much bigger challenges than the technology uptake
- a use case on using Fusion Middleware with JDE World
- a great question-and-answer session revolving around development tools, middleware, and Fus...uh, I mean Next Generation...Applications.

Great collaboration at Collaborate between OAUG, HEUG, ODTUG, Quest, IOUG, IOUC and Oracle. Kudos in particular to ODTUG, especially John King from King Training, who really went the extra mile to make this seminar work...just a great bunch of people.

It was also pretty cool to see the Oraclenerd hanging out in the back row.

The day was topped off nicely with the OAUG 20th anniversary bash and a wonderful ACE dinner. Really looking forward to Monday...
