It's going to be a hectic couple of weeks for me, as I get ready to head to Utah this weekend for the annual UTOUG Training Days conference next week. I love Salt Lake City, and the UTOUG conference is just the right size - not too large, but large enough that most of the rooms are full of attendees.
This year, I've got three slots, each as different as the next:
jQuery & APEX Primer
This session is aimed at the APEX developer who has just never had the time to get into the details of jQuery. It starts with an overview of the basics, and then proceeds to demonstrate these concepts using a simple HTML page. After that, it will show some more practical examples of how jQuery can work in an APEX application.
Secure Your APEX Applications with APEX-SERT
Security is as important as ever, and this session will show you how APEX-SERT - a free, open source tool - can be integrated into your development process. Once installed, APEX-SERT is instantly available to any and all workspace developers. Evaluations can also be scheduled to run daily, so your application is constantly being checked for potential threats.
GET POST ORDS JSON: Web Services for APEX Decoded
Lastly, web services are also one of the things that APEX developers may not have a lot of experience with. They are becoming more and more critical in modern web development, and it's a matter of when you'll need to learn them, not if. This session covers the basics then walks through how to take a standard APEX form and modify it to use web services instead of the built-in DML processes.
If that wasn't enough, I'll also be a part of the APEX panel on Tuesday - but will likely have to bail out a bit early to make my flights back home.

See you in SLC!
