Intro to JavaScript for APEX Developers
JavaScript continues to play an increasingly important role with each release of APEX. This is because APEX creates web apps, and it's JavaScript that programs the web. But for developers coming from a background in SQL and PL/SQL, JavaScript can be a little intimidating.

Luckily, APEX developers only need to know a little JavaScript to impact their applications significantly. In this Office Hours session, attendees will learn how to write essential JavaScript code, add it to APEX apps, and work with jQuery and the DOM.
