Paper Title and Abstract

Spice up your APEX application with third party plug-ins - A HALF DAY WORKSHOP

Stream: DEV

This is a half-day workshop designed to help APEX developers step through process of locating, downloading, installing & consuming APEX plug-ins. The session will take the form of a light demonstration at the start, then explanations of techniques followed by practical sessions implementing relevant features. The plug-ins used are free to use in your applications, and fall under GPL/MIT licence. They are available thanks to the generosity and curiosity of the worldwide APEX community. The result will be a small APEX application demonstrating many user friendly features with little effort.

Pre-requisites: No experience with APEX is necessary, but familiarity with the environment would be helpful.

This is designed to be a workshop so attendees will be expected to have their own laptop with APEX 4.x ready for use; or access to a local 4.2 environment will be available.

Supplementary files will be available for download from http://sagecomputing.com.au/workshops.
