Time to turn to the abstracts, first out is Matt Mulvaney. The title of his talk is "Honest New Features".


It is a stand-up comedy style presentations looking at new features, mostly the ones in 21.2. I look forward to it and I think it will be a great way to kick off the afternoon sessions. It should also be a good overview of a lot of features most has probably not used yet.

Next speaker up is Heli FromFinland. Some claims that is not a real last name but it is Helskyaho instead. Speaking for every non Finnish-speaking person in the world, that is not a real last name either. Who am I to speak, mine sounds like something made up by the chef in the Muppet-show? Fair point.


Note: For those not in on the joke, her twitter handle is @HeliFromFinland.


Back to Heli. She is an old friend of the Apex-day and tour. She is a founding mother of it and was instrumental to getting it started with a fabulous lineup already year one.


What has she not done? Ace Director, Ambassador for all usergroups in EMEA, building a company, writing books, speaking on seemingly every conference in the world before the pandemic. If you want to know what's up in the word of Oracle database, you know to stalk her on every platform you find her.


She joins us to speak about "OCI, APEX, and Machine Learning".




Heli's bio:

Heli Helskyaho is the CEO for Miracle Finland Oy. Heli holds a Master’s degree (Computer Science) at the University of Helsinki and she is specialized on databases. At the moment she is working on her doctoral studies at the University of Helsinki.


Heli has been working on IT since 1990. Heli is an Oracle ACE Director, and a frequent speaker in many conferences.


She is the author of Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler for Database Design Mastery (Oracle Press 2015)


Co-author of:

We're going to attempt a new kind of presentation this year. One where APEX-customers talks about the value of the product and the community. This not a deep dive technical style, but rather a value oriented talk where how APEX has enabled their business takes center stage.


To be clear, these are not paid slots ment for advertising ones company, but rather showcasing how APEX has enabled their business. I'm sure these will be among the more popular sessions this year.


First out will be Dan Larsson who needs little introduction to those who hang around the APEX-community. Few people has been featured in videos produced by Oracle without being a large customer. Even fewer in the memory of Joel video showing both Joel and Dan in a very relaxed day out by the Oracle HQ in San Francisco.


Dan has built his company's solutions on APEX, they have some 1500 customers using a solution requiring a very small team. You will want to hear his story.


With that the speaker lineup now looks like this.

Matt Mulvaney Oracle ACE & CTO at PretiusSoftware

Karen Cannell Oracle ACE Director & VP at TH Technology

Richard Martens Oracle ACE & Chief Technical Officer at SMART4Solutions

Heli Helskyaho Oracle ACE Director & CEO at Miracle Finland Oy

Menno Hoogendijk Principal Member of Technical Staff @ Oracle

Dan Larsson Founder Kemikaliedatabasen AB och Imbri AB

Yes, the Oracle APEX-team supports the APEX-day (tour) this year too. We've been lucky to get Menno Hoogendijk to agree to come and visit us. Without getting ahead of the announcements there will be little surprise that Menno will lift the vail and let us peek in on what the APEX-team is working on for the upcoming release.


With that the speaker lineup now looks like this.

Matt Mulvaney Oracle ACE & CTO at PretiusSoftware

Karen Cannell Oracle ACE Director & VP at TH Technology

Richard Martens Oracle ACE & Chief Technical Officer at SMART4Solutions

Heli Helskyaho Oracle ACE Director & CEO at Miracle Finland Oy

Menno Hoogendijk Principal Member of Technical Staff @ Oracle


Next update will be about a native Swede joining us for a customer story about the value APEX has had for them. Not a technical value story, a value in building a business.


Mathias@SWEOUG

The first speaker to be presented in more detail is Richard Martens. We're pleased to be joined by him and you can learn a bit mor about him in his bio:
