What we're about
Welcome to Oracle Developers NYC! Are you trying to make the most out of application development using the latest technologies? So are we. Join us so we can learn together!
Here are some of the technologies we love to champion:
Oracle Application Express (APEX)
Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS)
These days, front-end developers want their data in JSON format, but not all data is best persisted in JSON format. For many applications, the relational model will be the best way to store data. With ORDS, we can have the best of both worlds. We can use the many features of Oracle Database to build a robust, scalable persistence layer and then use ORDS to expose that layer RESTfully.
Introduced in 1979, this was the world’s first commercially available Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) database. Today it ranks as the world’s most popular database technology (http://db-engines.com/en/ranking). There are many topics to cover here, including core concepts (architecture, concurrency & consistency, transactions, etc.), SQL, PL/SQL, database design, tools (such as SQL Developer), tuning, and more.
Our History: This group started as an APEX specific meetup on April 22, 2014 before widening the focus to Oracle development on December 1, 2016.
