It depends of the number of participants. I don't think that so many people will participate. Most of us are working the whole day. I am not keen on extra-programming for an award after working the whole day. And the weather is fine, the girls are looking pretty and the after-work-beer in the Biergarten tastes delicious! It's definitely the wrong time for sitting at the computer desk.
That sounds interesting and challenging... with the apex job market here in uk a bit slow, if I win maybe it helps me to get a job in Germany?! Just joking...
Now my question: I could not find anywhere the parameters for the award. Great end-user experience? Stunning graphics? Use of advanced programming techniques? Security? Complexity? Usefulness? Innovativeness?
Of course I assume all of the above, but if I have a finite amount of time that I can spend e.g. either in the user interface or in the underlying code, which one would give more chances of winning? Anyone knows?
You can use 11g EE functions and the BI publisher. But since the jury must have the chance to get your application unning on a preconfigured APEX server you are de-facto
limited to the built-in APEX - BI PUblisher integration. A "self-built" integration would be not allowed ...
