Look for details later this week.
While you wait for that, enjoy these tidbits from our Oracle Applications User Experience colleagues.
Fit for Work: A Team Experience of Wearable Technology
Wearables are a thing, just look at the CES 2015 coverage, so Misha (@mishavaughan) decided to distribute Fitbits among her team to collect impressions.
Good idea, get everyone to use the same device, collect feedback, although it seems unfair, given Ultan (@ultan) is perhaps the fittest person I know. Luckily, this wasn’t a contest of fitness or of most-wrist-worn-gadgets. Rather, the goal was to gather as much anecdotal experience as possible.
Bonus, there’s a screenshot of the Oracle HCM Cloud Employee Wellness prototype.
Fresh off a trip to Jolly Old England, the OAUX team will be in Santa Fe, Mexico in late February. Stay tuned for details.
Speaking of, one of our developers in Oracle’s Mexico Development Center, Sarahi Mireles (@sarahimireles) wrote up her impressions and thoughts on the Shape and ShipIt we held in November, en español.
And finally, OAUX and the Oracle College Hire Program
Oracle has long had programs for new hires right out of college. Fun fact, I went through one myself many eons ago.
Anyway, we in OAUX have been graciously invited to speak to these new hires several times now, and this past October, Noel, several other OAUX luminaries and David (@dhaimes) were on a Morning Joe panel titled “Head in the Clouds,” focused loosely around emerging technologies, trends and the impact on our future lives.
Interesting discussion to be sure, and after attending three of these Morning Joe panels now, I’m happy to report that the attendance seems to grow with each iteration, as does the audience interaction.
