ODTUG Mobile Day : "Going Mobile? Where is Oracle Taking You?"

Yesterday ODTUG organised the ODTUG Mobile Day in Utrecht the Netherlands. The event was supported by two local user groups, OGh and OBUG, and sponsored by eProseed NL.
This full-day event was dedicated to Oracle's next-generation mobile development, infrastructure, and security solutions: "Going Mobile? Where is Oracle Taking You?". All of this was presented by the world’s leading ACE Directors and ACEs,
  • Lonneke Dikmans – Oracle ACE Director
  • Dimitri Gielis – Oracle ACE Director
  • Roel Hartman – Oracle ACE Director
  • Mark Rittman – Oracle ACE Director
  • Mia Urman – Oracle ACE Director
  • Luc Bors – Oracle ACE
and several Oracle speakers. Session abstract are published at the ODTUG website.
These top experts in the field showed how to implement the latest mobile advancements from the newest technologies, such as Oracle Mobile Cloud infrastructure to building BI mobile dashboards to a deep dive into APEX security for mobile to the latest features in Oracle MAF.

With over 75 attendees, this event was fully booked. Sessions where well attended and with an enthusiastic audience it was fun to present at this event. All sessions focused on mobile technology applications.

In his opening keynote of Regis Louis, VP Product Management, Oracle Corporation, explained what "Going Mobile with Oracle" means and talked about Oracle's Platform and Application Strategy regarding mobile. Next, the audience split into two groups for a total of 10 paralel sessions in 2 separate tracks. One track was devoted to FMW whereas the other track was for BI and APEX.

After a great day packed with sessions, the closing keynote was for Steven Davelaar.

He showed a demonstration of an end-to-end mobile solution and discussed the overall architecture and key implementation techniques. He also shared some practical guidelines on getting started with "mobilizing" your enterprise and discuss on-premise versus cloud-based mobile back ends. Some very nice UI's and an excellent insight on how to use Oracle's cloud solution in your architecture.
At around 5:15 pm it was a wrap and people went home, happy and satisfied. We have had some really good feedback on this event and on the individual sessions as well.

Not sure where ODTUG will share the presentations, but in the meanwhile, mine can be found here:

Thanks to ODTUG, OGh and OBUG for organising this great event.

How to use node-red to interact with twitter

Recently I had to setup an application that was able to read twitter and, based on some predefined keywords,  had to reply to specific tweets. I decided to have a look at node-red to set this stuff up. It proofed to be rather straightforward and easy to implement. The hardest part was to get approval for a twitter developer account. In this post I describe how I used node-red and how I implemented the interaction with twitter. What is node-red, and how to use it? Node-RED  ( ) is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click.  You can use node-RED in many ways, but for the purpose of this demo I decided to run it in a docker image. I used the way described here ( ), as this i

How to: Adding Speech to Oracle Digital Assistant; Talk to me Goose

At Oracle Code One in October, and also on DOAG in Nurnberg Germany in November I presented on how to go beyond your regular chatbot. This presentation contained a part on exposing your Oracle Digital Assistant over Alexa and also a part on face recognition. I finally found the time to blog about it. In this blogpost I will share details of the Alexa implementation in this solution. Typically there are 3 area's of interest which I will explain. Webhook Code to enable communication between Alexa and Oracle Digital Assistant Alexa Digital Assistant (DA) Explaining the Webhook Code The overall setup contains of Alexa, a NodeJS webhook and an Oracle Digital Assistant. The webhook code will be responsible for receiving and transforming the JSON payload from the Alexa request. The transformed will be sent to a webhook configured on Oracle DA. The DA will send its response back to the webhook, which will transform into a format that can be used by an Alexa device. To code

ADF 12.1.3 : Implementing Default Table Filter Values

In one of my projects I ran into a requirement where the end user needs to be presented with default values in the table filters. This sounds like it is a common requirement, which is easy to implement. However it proved to be not so common, as it is not in the documentation nor are there any Blogpost to be found that talk about this feature. In this blogpost I describe how to implement this. The Use Case Explained Users of the application would typically enter today's date in a table filter in order to get all data that is valid for today. They do this each and every time. In order to facilitate them I want to have the table filter pre-filled with today's date (at the moment of writing July 31st 2015). So whenever the page is displayed, it should display 'today' in the table filter and execute the query accordingly. The problem is to get the value in the filter without the user typing it. Lets first take a look at how the ADF Search and Filters are implemented by
