Open Source Cool Web App with PL/SQL and Formspider

Image
As an independent consultant, Nicholas Mwaura needed a Formspider demo application so that he can show the best of the product to his potential clients.

However, all the sample applications on the Formspider web site were developer oriented. We had no application online which consultants, IT managers can use to impress other stakeholders with Formspider. (Facepalm)

Nicholas decided to built this demo application himself even though this was going to be the first time he is going to work with Formspider. The tool encouraged him that much.

Think about this for a minute. When we learn a new tool, most of us are happy if we build a Hello World application as our first one. Nicholas built a demo application to demonstrate the best of Formspider. This speaks volumes about his high technical skills and how Formspider empowers Oracle Forms and PL/SQL developers.

You can watch the entire webinar below. The webinar consists of four parts:

1) Introduction to Formspider by me

2) Nicholas Mwa…

SQL Needs a Sister (Broken Link Corrected)

I've just published an article on Medium about the missing sister of SQL. I think there is a fundamental mistake we’ve been making in using SQL. We use it both to ask a question and format the answer and I think this is just wrong. You can read the article at this link. (Sorry for the broken link in the previous post and a big thank you to the person who sent us a comment about the issue. :-) )
