That’s the title of the book I’ve agreed to write for APRESS, or at least the working title.
The book will be aimed at new comers to Application Express, introducing them to the environment via the development of a full system and using as many of the new features as possible. However, I’m hoping that it will be useful for people who have dipped their toes in the waters of 3.2 and want to get up to speed on what 4.0 has to offer. The book is due to hit shelved early next year, so it’s a ways off. But as APEX 4 is still only in Early Adopter, that’s probably a good thing.
This is the first time I’ve attempted anything like this, and I’m taking it on with more than just a little trepidation. However my good friends, and business partners Scott Spendolini and John Scott (Co-Authors of the APRESS book Pro Oracle Application Express) assure me that it’s a wonderful experience that I will cherish for the rest of my days! (Actually John said that the two best days are the day you start it and the day you finish, and I believe that to be closer to the truth!)
I’m going to be blogging about my experience. Both about writing the book and about some of the things I learn along the way. So watch this space for more on the book and my travels along the APEX 4.0 path.
Wish me luck!
