OpenWorld 2018 - Day 1 Monday

The first day of Oracle OpenWorld 2018 and it's been a full day.   Here's a few of my highlights.

Dan and Kyle from
Advanced PeopleSoft Administration Using the PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture : Dan and Kyle from gave a brilliant session describing the role of DPK and ACM in the world of automating PeopleSoft installation and configuration.  They included a cool demo of using ACM (Automated Configuration Management) to configure ElasticSearch server and deploy and build a set of selected indexes - all with literally one click.

Jim Marion 
Getting the Most Out of PeopleSoft PeopleTools: Tips and Techniques : Jim Marion from jsmpros walked through some cool development ideas using CSS and Event Mapping to a backed room.  Did you know the Fluid Homepage was "just a grid" ? If it's a grid of rows then we can apply conditional formatting to each tile by injecting our own Page Activate code using Event Mapping.
