About "EXPERT Oracle Application Express"

John Scott, co-founder and director at APEX Evangelists, had the idea to write the book after the very sad passing of Carl Backstrom and then the equally sad and unexpected passing of Scott Spadafore.These two people had helped him immensely during his time with Oracle Application Express and since he knew them both personally he wondered what he could do to help the families of two people who he admired immensely and also considered friends.

That's when he came up with the idea of writing a collaborative book, with each chapter written by a different author who knew both Carl and Scott. At ODTUG 2010 he approached people who he knew felt the same way about Carl and Scott as he did and felt an enormous sense of pride when every single one of the authors didn't hesitate in agreeing to contribute a chapter. http://jes.blogs.shellprompt.net/2011/03/30/expert-oracle-application-express/
