This last month has been all about Apex for me. After OBIEE 12c installed so easily and working well, I decided its time to learn something new.
Apart from buying a few books (PL/SQL Programming, Expert Apex, and Pro JQuery in Apex) I headed into the Apex World, and found dozens of experts, with fantastic Blogs and Real Examples, including the brilliant Forum Try Out site (https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=53848:1:::NO:::) and Patrick Wolfs http://www.inside-oracle-apex.com/
More blogs below. All worth visiting.
Also worth visiting Joel at http://joelkallman.blogspot.co.uk/
