Niall has been developing using Oracle since Oracle V5. He has been using Oracle PL/SQL Web technologies since 1995 and Oracle APEX since 2005.  Niall has developed a number of large, multi-lingual applications for multinational companies and organizations all over the world.  Several of these receives tens of millions of page views per year.  Niall is a strong believer in APEX solutions because of their stability, scalability, and rapid development speed.  Niall is also the organizer of the Swiss APEX Meetup group.

For #malagapex18, he has submitted an abstract titled “Building a large Image library using APEX”. Here you can find a quick summary of his talk:

This case study will describe the approach and challenges faced when overhauling a 14-year old image library of over 40’000 photos. The new version was developed using Oracle APEX 5.1, Oracle Multimedia, Oracle Text and PL/SQL. Issues addressed include automatic extraction of image metadata to facilitate searches and image description, automatic resizing of images using Oracle Multimedia, customization of APEX reports to produce a modern presentation format for the photo library.

We really look forward to attending Nial’s presentation. Meanwhile, you can follow his Twitter account @Niall_McP, and don’t forget to stay tuned to our Twitter account (@malagAPEX) to get the latest news on #MALAGAPEX18!
