Apress at Collaborate

Apress is participating in the upcoming COLLABORATE 17 conference in Las Vegas from April 2-6 and will be at Booth 1502 in the exhibit hall. Assistant Editorial Director Jonathan Gennick will be running the booth along with Coordinating Editor Jill Balzano, who project manages almost all the Oracle books that Apress publishes. They would be honored and delighted if you would stop by Booth 1502 and say "hi".

Wednesday includes an OakTable Network track in one of the lab rooms. Bryn Llewellyn speaks at 11:00am on "Why Use PL/SQL?" Noon begins a series of lightening talks, of which Jonathan has the first slot. Presentations by OakTable Network members begin at 8:30am in that room, and run all day.

COLLABORATE 17 offers a wonderful opportunity for face-to-face networking with like-minded professionals. As well, there are excellent presentations that can help you to grow into a more skilled and productive practitioner. Visit the IOUG COLLABORATE 17 page to learn more, and register today!

Apress and the IOUG work together through IOUG Press to publish the best books for Oracle professionals. Your purchases go beyond just supporting Apress in producing great content. They help the IOUG as well. If you're an IOUG member, visit the IOUG Press landing page for members-only deals. Not a member? Join today at the same site.

COLLABORATE 17 and IOUG Press cannot happen without generous professionals willing to share and help those coming after them to also succeed. If you have a message or knowledge to give back to your colleagues in book form, come talk with the Apress team. Contact JonathanGennick@Apress.com. Or meet him in person at the Apress booth (#1502) in the COLLABORATE 17 exhibit hall.

We hope to see you at COLLABORATE 17!
