This is my seventh book on Oracle Application Express (APEX) written for the latest 18.1 version. Just like my previous books that exposed the technology to thousands around the globe, this book is also aimed at absolute beginners who wish to learn from self-paced professional guidance and need a solid foundation in Oracle APEX.
Oracle APEX is an amazing development platform in which you can build robust web applications. Not only it provides an environment where you can rapidly develop data-centric web applications, it also allows end-users to interact with their data via tools like interactive report, interactive grid, different types of charts, maps and more.
The most convincing way to explore a technology is to apply it to a real world problem. Without involving the audience too much into the boring bits, the book adopts an inspiring approach that helps beginners practically evaluate almost every feature of Oracle APEX. In this book, you’ll develop an application that demonstrates the use of those features to get hands-on exposure of Oracle APEX anatomy. The sticky inspirational approach adopted in this book not only exposes the technology, but also draws you in and keeps your interest up till the last exercise.
