There is a very strong Oracle Community in Perth, Australia. I admire many Perth-based Oracle User Group volunteers who organize such great Oracle events year after year. This year is no exception. I just spent 30 minutes going through the program, and I should say that the lineup of speakers is very impressive.

Thank you MATES for organizing it once again. It is my great pleasure to be part of it.
A very special thanks goes to Scott Wesley, who spent his own time and helped the conference participants. He put together an APEX-based scheduler available here. He writes that “this is currently a demonstration application only, and is not directly affiliated with AUSOUG”. Thanks Scott. I have used your work to put together this blog post.
