OAUX Communications and Outreach team explores welding at the TechShop in San Carlos. Team event, but it reminds us that walking in the user’s shoes, ethnography, and other upfront research into how people really work is key to a UX that resonates. h/t @mishavaughan

Rejoignez-nous le 2 ou 3 Décembre 2014 pour expérimenter pendant une journée les aspects liés à la planification, le déploiement, le suivi et la gestion d’une solution de Cloud Privé d’Entreprise.
Pendant cette journée, vous aurez l’occasion de découvrir les points suivants :
- Considération architecturale et concepts d’une solution de cloud privé
- Consolidation base de données & Planification des ressources
- Approche Base de données en mode service
(Database as a service)
- Clone de bases de données
As a team-building activity for our newly merged team of research, design and development, someone, who probably wishes to remain nameless, organized a glass mosaic and welding extravaganza at The Crucible in Oakland.
We split into two teams, one MIG welding, the other glass breaking, and here’s the result.
All-in-all an interesting and entertaining activity. Good times were had by all, and no one was cut (more...)
Editor’s note: Here’s a repost of a wonderful write-up of an event we did a couple weeks ago, courtesy of Friend of the ‘Lab Karen Scipi (@KarenScipi).
What Karen doesn’t mention is that she organized, managed and ran the event herself. Additional props to Ultan (@ultan) on the idea side, including the naming, Sandra Lee (@SandraLee0415) on the execution side and to Misha (@mishavaughan) for seeing the value. (more...)
On Friday, December 19, AMIS organises a special XMas-terclass on SOA Suite 12.
SOA Suite 12c (June 2014) was a major release for Oracle’s flagship integration product. This release introduces new functionality, higher developer productivity, more robust run-time scalability and performance. 12c brings together development and administration of Service Bus and SOA composite applications, it ships new technology adapters as well as a SDK to develop custom adapters and provides across the stack support for REST-style (more...)
Jobs To Be Done. Or #JTBD. We’ve been road testing this framework lately. I like it. Could it be a good fit for the busy cloud developer who wants to build a usable solution that solves a real problem and doesn’t want to deal with the generalizations of personas or overhead of user profiles (a debate in itself)?
Seems like a good fit for the agile world too. Pictured is Julian Orr (left) (more...)
Images are heavily used in Mobile apps. For instance a list that contains employees usually shows the images of these employees. This works well when you have a WIFI connection, but what if you are using slower connections ? If you look at a mobile twitter app you will see that, depending on connectivity, images are loaded instantaneously or delayed. In this post I explain how you can load the images of a List in a (more...)
This year some of us at the AppsLab attended the Samsung Developer Conference aka #SDC2014. Last year it was Samsung’s first attempt and we were also there. The quality and caliber of presentations increased tenfold from last year. Frankly, Samsung is doing it really hard to resist to join their ecosystem.
Here are some of the trends I observed:
Wearables and Health:
There was a huge emphasis in Samsung’s commitment with wearable technology. They released (more...)
Editorial Note: This is a guest post by friend of the ‘Lab and colleague DJ Ursal. Also be sure to check out our Hackathon entry here:
EchoUser (@EchoUser), in partnership with SpaceGAMBIT, Maui Makers, the Minor Planet Center, NASA, the SETI Institute, and Further by Design, hosted an Asteroid Hackathon. The event was in response to the NASA Grand Challenge, “focused on finding all asteroid (more...)
A couple weeks ago Jeremy Ashley (@jrwashley), Bill Kraus, Raymond Xie and I participated in the Asteroid Hackathon hosted by @EchoUser. The main focus was “to engage astronomers, other space nerds, and the general public, with information, not just data.”
Je bent bezig met het creëren van iets nieuws? Een nieuw product of bedrijfsmodel waardoor je organisatie een unieke positie in kan nemen? Je zoekt je uitdaging in het oplossen van uitdagende inhoudelijke hobbels waar je lekker je tanden in kunt zetten. Maar in de praktijk loop je als vernieuwer al snel tegen bestaande wet en regelgeving aan als het gaat om innovatie. Wat doen je dan? Conformeren, of (more...)
With the release of Oracle Enterprise Repository 12c another product was released. Oracle API Catalog 12c (OAC) allows you to build a catalog of your organization APIs. OAC provides a layer of visibility to those APIs so application development knows what and which one to use. OAC includes a simple metamodel for an API asset, automation to populate OAC, and the ability for users to search OAC for APIs and understand the details of (more...)
BPM Suite 12c: Getting started with BPM Studio (JDeveloper) and Process Composer using Process Asset Manager (PAM)
We see a clear trend with Oracle BPM Suite that the Process Composer – the browser based modeling IDE – is getting richer in functionality. Before too long, virtually all modeling/design and many implementation activities will be supported by Process Composer. With the upcoming Process Cloud Service where the process is created in its entirety through browser based tooling, this is of course necessary.
It will be a common practice to work on business processes (more...)
There’s a post over on VoX about a OAUX new lab at Oracle HQ, the Cloud UX Lab.
Finished just before OOW in September, this lab is a showcase for OAUX projects, including a few of ours.
The lab reminds me of a spacecraft from the distant future, the medical bay or the flight deck. It’s a very cool place, directly inspired and executed by (more...)
