Oracle APEX - The All in One Platform #JoelKallmanDay
I have been using Oracle APEX since 2011. Initially, I started using it as a parallel development platform through which I could create quick win applications. Over the years , I have witnessed great journey of Oracle APEX which forced me to consider this platform for mission critical application development. During my journey with APEX , I went through lot of contents from one of the most vibrant and helpful community members. But, There was one passionate community leader who has been great inspiration for every one out there. The great Joel Kallman.
Joel has expressed many times his overall vision through community posts, conferences and tweets. With constant efforts of Joel and whole APEX team , we could now see more growing career options for APEX. APEX is now considered as All in One Platform which offers everything you need when you want to develop enterprise grade application. At the same time, Organizations have experienced real benefits of such a great platform and this is another reason behind the overall success.
In the below picture, I have tried to summarize all development and administration areas of APEX. Personally , I have worked on most of the areas as per development requirements. But, It requires more focused approach and specific skills to get expertise in respective areas. So, we may witness hiring of APEX developers or administrators in specific areas due to scale of APEX applications. As per my experience , you can not be mastered in all areas. But, we must be aware about capabilities of APEX platform to choose our area of interest. Moreover, all emerging APEX developers should be aware about all such options. To spread awareness , I thought to share on this wonderful day and pay tribute to Joel.
In the coming days, I will try to give more insight into each areas of development and administration with an example for those who have just started with APEX. This will also be useful who wants to understand power of platform and convey the power to every one.
