Scott clearly has a passion for Oracle APEX. In the time since he's left Forms behind, he's recorded a video series; written a book; trained developers around the country; answered forum questions from around the world; and written many posts on all things APEX, and some things jQuery. Scott's been consulting with clients around Perth since 2000, enjoying his time with the Sage Computing crew for about a decade. He was recognised as an Oracle ACE in 2014 and he also loves science & astronomy, possibly a little too much

What do you think are the sort of things you should supply when asking a technical question on the internet? From all the stackoverflow code farming we do, we've probably got a good sense of what makes a good question, but the proof in the pudding shows many still don't ask them very well. From my extensive time in the OTN forums, I'd like to offer a simple set of guidelines when enquiring on the net among your peers. I hope to teach how a good test case becomes an effective rubber duck, improving all our code.
Exploring AJAX from Afar - A low tech guide to web based applications

However, the potential AJAX interactions provide is often underutilised.
Business analysts may potential bridges between requirement and capability;
And managers may be surprised at the simplicity of the mechanics.
This session aims is for everyone, and I offer a fresh look at what your browser can offer.
These tools I used every day are for more than just APEX developers.
I'll open the hood and shed light on some of the simple, but moving parts of modern browser behaviour.
