Site Upgrade

I spent some time upgrading the web site over the weekend.  I'm now running the latest versions of Joomla and all of the components and modules.  The look and feel has changed considerably and I even took the time to make up a logo for my company, ERP Associates.

PeopleSoft Corner Blog and the forum are where they've always been.  Hopefully all of your old shortcuts still work.  Your old username/password combination should work if you're a registered user.

I do encourage you to register if you haven't already done so.  Registration makes it easier to post messages on the forum or leave comments.  You'll also get access to the members only area of the web site, and you'll be able to use the social networking features when they start rolling out in the near future.


The OpenWorld Road

I don’t usually attend Open World two years in a row, but this year I’m going to make an exception for a couple of reasons:  1) They’re letting Bloggers attend the hands-on sessions and I’m really anxious to get up close and personal with some of the Fusion development tools, and 2) My contract is drawing to a close and it’s a good time to start networking to find that next engagement.

I waited a little late to register and find a hotel room, so it looks like I’m going to be staying at The Mosser again this year.  I like that it’s just a few blocks from Moscone.  The one drawback this year is that I get to share a restroom down the hall with other folks on the floor.  Ah, brings back great memories of my European travels.  It’s cheap (relatively), and fortunately I am too. Smile

My primary focus is going to be on networking and Fusion tools.  I’m starting to realize that I have a lot to learn about Java and the technologies that surround it, and my normal "self taught" approach isn’t going to cut it because there’s just so much to learn.  That’s not to say I won’t attend PeopleSoft sessions – there are several I’m looking forward to related to PeopleTools 8.5 and the 9.1 application releases.  But I’m not going to kill myself getting to the sessions this year, especially if it means cutting a great conversation short.


OOW Update

Made it to the hotel last night.  The flights were on-time and my luggage even made it -- no complains there!

I'm staying at the Mosser hotel, it's just down the street from the Moscone.  I forgot how SMALL the room was!  Glad I pad extra for the room with the private shower.  There are several conference attendees staying here, so it's all good.

This conference is going to be BIG!  I certainly miss the intimate 12,000 person PeopleSoft conferences.  At least everyone you met in those were there for the same thing.


Going to OOW?

I'm actually going to sneak away from the project next week and attend Oracle Open World 2008.  Somebody in public relations messed up and they're letting me as press with my "blogger" credentials, so it should be fun.  I'm looking forward to the one-on-one interviews with Safra and Larry, a special sneak-peak of all of the new Fusion applications, and back-stage passes to the concert.

Okay, even if it doesn't meet my rather modest expectations I'm still looking forward to seeing a lot of the folks I've worked with over the years, meeting some new people and learning a TON from this year's strong PeopleSoft track.  If you've ever been you know how exhausting it all can be so don't expect daily updates, but I'll do my best.

If you're going to be there and want to hook up, shoot me an e-mail at brent.martin@erpassociates.com, or give me a call at 918-409-4529.  I'll be available much of the day on Sunday.


PeopleSoft Corner Forum

As you may have noticed, I've launched a new PeopleSoft forum. The topic areas are currently a General Discussion forum and a Job Posting forum.  I hope you'll check it out.

I didn't launch it because I think we need another PeopleSoft Forum.  IT Toolbox Forum and Yahoo PeopleSoft Fans forum seem to have plenty of traffic and generate lots of good questions and answers.   It's just that a blog is a very one-way communication vehicle.  That's not necessarily a bad thing -- I enjoy writing about what I know and avoiding what I don't.  And when users comment, it's always regarding an article I've written so questions are relatively easy to answer.

But I do get a lot of personal e-mail messages asking specific questions, and one of my posts was hijacked and turned into Q&A forum.  So instead of handling these questions in an ad-hoc basis, I decided to address them in a forum so everybody can benefit.


New on PeopleSoft Corner for 2008

I just wanted to point out a few new features on PeopleSoft Corner for 2008:

First, the Job Opportunities section is open for anybody.  If you’re looking for a job or you have a position you want to fill, just use the contact us link and tell me about it.  I’ll be sure to get it posted.

Next, I’ve added a Resources section on the menu.  This is where I’m keeping code and utilities that I want to share.  Right now I have my “PeopleSoft SQL Toolkit” on-line there, which is just my collection of SQL scripts for PeopleSoft.  I find the security scripts especially valuable.  I also have my favorite bookmarklets available there.  With them you can have something bookmarked once and have it work in any PeopleSoft environment.  You can also go from a page in one PeopleSoft environment to the same page in another environment (it’ll even pull up the same data) without having to sign on again.   Have fun with anything in the resources section, but make sure you read the “ERP Associates Beta Test License Agreement” that they’re all licensed under.


Crunch Time

I apologize if I'm behind on answering comments or making new posts.  It's crunch time on my project and everyone on the project including me is working dilligently to make a November 1 go-live.  I'm sure we'll make it, but until then we have issues to fix and a production environment to prep.

Talk to you when I get a break!

PeopleSoft-Specific Google Search Engine

If you don’t find a particular topic on my blog, maybe you’d like to search other PeopleSoft blogs of forums.  Not a problem.  I’ve recently created a Google Custom Search Engine that includes PeopleSoft Blogs, PeopleSoft documentation on Oracle’s web site, PeopleSoft Forums and other resources.  At the top of this page are two search boxes.  The one on the left that says Search PeopleSoft Corner will search just this site.  The one on the right that says Search PeopleSoft Blogs will search all of the PeopleSoft resources listed in my Web Links section (and a few others).

The Home Page for this search engine is here

Please let me know if you'd like to suggest other sites to index. 


Skipping OpenWorld

I won't be at Oracle OpenWorld this time. I try to make every other conference, and this is my off year. But I'll be looking for some good PeopleSoft-related blogs from OpenWorld so please let me know if you're blogging and I'll link to you.

See you next year!
