I guess Jes is even more popular now that he has his own book :) I bought the book but

The first session of the day was schedule to 11:30 AM. I had some free time that I used to get around and see what was happening. I went to Moscone North and after blogging a bit on the couches, went to the Unconference section and then the bookstore. I couldn’t find John Scott’s Pro Oracle APEX book, but later at night he told me that the book was there, so maybe I’ll go to the bookstore

After 15 well deserved :) days of vacations in the sunny Algarve (south Portugal) I'm back to work.
