As of today, I’ve joined Jeremy Ashley’s Applications User Experience team. I’m sure many of you are familiar with Apps UX and the work they do, and I’m excited to join the likes of Erika (@erikanollwebb), Misha, Ultan (@ultan) and the many other very smart people that comprise that organization.
My role is pretty loosely-defined and will evolve over time, but some part of it will involve investigating new ways for users to interact with Fusion Applications through emerging technologies like Internet of Things. If you read here, you’ll know I tend to follow emerging technologies (ahem, shiny objects) pretty closely anyway, so I’m hoping to find ways to put my interests to work and solve real problems for applications users.
After a long hiatus, I’m looking forward to returning to my product roots to build some stuff.
In case you’re wondering, Noel (@noelportugal) will remain on the WebCenter evangelism team as a developer advocate. I’m hoping he’ll feel the urge to share some of his exploits here, although, given past history, I’m not holding my breath. I’ll be keeping tabs on his work with WebCenter and plan to share the exciting stuff he does. As I move forward with my new projects, I’ll need to pick his brains anyway.
This isn’t really a farewell to WebCenter. I’ll be taking everything I’ve learned in the last three years back with me and using it to benefit applications users. I’ve enjoyed my time with the WebCenter team and had a chance to work with a ton of great people.
I’m excited to return to applications, where I’ve spent the bulk of my time with Oracle. It’s a much different world than when we left three years ago, and I’m stoked to join Apps UX and build some cool stuff.
