I’m very pleased to announce that our colleague and friend Kathy recently pushed live a page on oracle.com under the OAUX section, dedicated to our Emerging Technologies team and our work.
Big moment for us. I feel like a made guy.
Don’t worry. This little blog will continue to be our home and stream of consciousness, but now, we have another, more structured home, focused on our projects and thinking.
Like that’s (more...)
The theme was Internet of Things (IoT) and this marked the first time that they organized a hackathon specifically for an outside partner, eProseed. All the previous hackathons were internal Oracle events. Initially the plan was for us Oracle folks to go over and mentor teams as needed, but later on, (more...)

Despite the amount of iOS and Apple Watch chatter here lately, we still have a dedicated Android user base on the team, including me.
If you read here, you’ll know that projecting an Android device screen to an audience has always been important for us, and usually we have more than one screen to project. Over the years, I’ve used several tools for this BBQScreen, Android Screen Monitor and lately, Chromecast’s screen mirroring feature, (more...)

Editor’s note: If you read here, you might recall that we have dos hermanos en Guadalajara, Luis (@lsgaleana) y Osvaldo (@vaini11a). Last month, the Mexico Development Center (MDC) celebrated its fifth anniversary. Here’s to many more. Reposted from VoX.
As you may know, Oracle has a couple Development Centers around the globe, and one of them is in Guadalajara, (more...)
At home I connect using VPN and somehow this Home Folder is unreachable. Very inconvenient, because with every restart I need to open/import my projects again.
As with the increase of the heap (more...)
Using a customization file I changed the endpoints of the content server's webservices to mock-services in SoapUI.
In these testcases I kick-off the OSB services, and in successive MockResponse-teststeps I try to catch the service-requests of OSB. This enables me to set assertions on the messages that OSB sends out to the content server, and thus validate the (more...)
The likes of Webvan pioneered grocery delivery back in the dot com days, and fun fact, Amazon owns and continues to operate what is left of Webvan. In those halcyon days, I used Webvan quite a bit. Sounds a bit silly, but being able to order groceries (more...)
Editor’s Note: Reposted from Ultan’s (@ultan) Tumblr, a great read. Ultan knows his fitness (and fashion), so his rousing endorsement of the Peak is legit. Read my impressions of the Basis Peak for more. Since I wore it last, Basis has updated the watch’s firmware to add some pretty cool features. Enjoy.
“You’ve been running! Take a selfie, see how exercise changes you!” I smile when that message it pops into the notifications list on my Android smartphone when using the Basis Peak. All part of what endears me to using it even more to track my activity and sleep patterns.
The “smile-o-meter” approach of the Basis Peak Photo Finish feature is a great mix of the analog and digital, leveraging well-familiar smart phone functionality to (more...)
I recently met up with David Craig (@davidhcraig) of Dublin Design Studio, the main man behind the Scriba stylus in the CHQ Building in Dublin for a chat about the Scriba (@getscriba) user experience (UX), innovation in Ireland, and other interests in common (turns out he’s a serious triathlete). Disclosure: I am a backer of Scriba on Kickstarter.
IMHO, the term “iPen” might soon (at time of writing) (more...)
The Year of Data continues for me, and yesterday, I finished a four-week relationship with the Garmin Vivosmart.
I use relationship purposefully here because if you use a wearable to track fitness and sleep, you’re wearing it a lot, and it actually becomes a little friend (or enemy) that’s almost always with you. Wearables are very personal devices.
If you’re scoring at home, 2015 has gone thusly for me:
A few nights ago a Domino’s Pizza commercial got my attention. It is called “Sarah Loves Emoji.”
At the end the fictional character Sarah finishes by simply saying “only Domino’s gets me.” The idea of texting an emoji, tweeting, using a Smart TV, or a smartwatch to automagically order pizza fascinates me. What Domino’s is attempting to do here is to reduce user friction, which is defined as anything that prevents a user from (more...)
