Session Summary for Attendees:  After spending about seven years as an Oracle Forms developer, I successfully transitioned to Oracle APEX, and I find myself a very happy camper. After spending time in the chat thread during the Ask TOM Office Hours session on Oracle Forms modernization, I felt like I had a duty to help existing Forms developers take hold of our modern development environment.

This session will cover the important considerations to transform your skills as an Oracle Forms developer to Oracle APEX. You might be surprised by just how much overlap there is.
