Oracle Code Innovate Retools, Embraces Virtual Format to Engage Developers
Jim Grisanzio from Oracle Developer Relations talks with Chip Baber from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) about the Oracle Code Innovate Program. The conversation centers around building the cloud community by working directly with developers — that's side by side, hands on coding collaboration — on real cloud projects for active customers. The program, which started in 2018 with in-person sprints and moved virtual in 2020, uses a flexible Agile framework that spans a week of interactions, such as planning, training, ideation, coding, standups, demos, etc. What’s great about the program is that all sides learn — the customer’s developers get more direct experience coding in OCI, the customer’s executive management gets needed projects initiated that can be evolved to eventual deployment, and Oracle gets valuable engineering feedback that can help improve OCI. Plus, it’s fun.

I met both of them in Brussels in February 2020 during the preFOSDEM 2020 MySQL Days. This is where the MySQL community comes together for two days of intensive technical sessions before going to the premier European open source conference — FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Software Developers' European Meeting). Yes, there's that much content to deal with so you need a conference before the conference! Before the pandemic, Oracle used to send many engineers from various open source projects at the company to FOSDEM to participate in the event and to engage the other 20K developers from around the world there.

Building Software Development Communities: Lessons Learned and Stories from the Field
Here are some photos, stories, and lessons I've collected over the years building Open Source software development communities at Sun Microsystems, Oracle, and on my own. I like taking photos and I like talking to developers — it's how I learn. So in this comprehensive commentary I talk about pretty much everything I've learned during the previous 15 years or so doing community development. Everything I've learned I still use today. You can follow along with the photos below or view the video. I gave an earlier version of this talk at the All India Oracle User Group's (AIOUG) virtual OG Yatra in 2020, and I've talked about bits and pieces of the content in many other presentations. That's why I wanted to bring it all together into a single narrative centered around some specific images and stories. Hope it hangs together. Podcast Host: Jim Grisanzio, Oracle Developer Rel

#389: Tech Predictions for 2021
Javed Mohammed talks with Serial Entrepreneur Bob Quillin. Predicting the future isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. In the absence of having a magical crystal ball, it requires amongst other things, experience, vision, creativity, good judgement, recognizing patterns beyond the obvious and a track record. When I think of making predictions, or forecasting the future, I am thinking of people who can determine inflection points. This is not an easy task, and there are some people like serial entrepreneurs who do it better than others. It doesn’t mean they get it right all the time or in all aspects of life, but they can do it well in a particular field. In that regard, Bob Quillin who is a serial entrepreneur graced this Podcast, and gave us a year in review of 2020 and his predictions for 2021.

The term “low code” has been around since it was coined by a Forrester Research analyst in 2014.

But in the ensuing years low code platforms such as Oracle Application Express (APEX) and Oracle Visual Builder have found fans among experienced professional developers. In this program a panel or expert developers explores the use of low code platforms and why they have captured the attention of coding pros. Read the complete show notes here.

Community Managers Bob Rhubart and Javed Mohammed share the best of 25 years of Java. May 23, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the first appearance of the Java programming language, as designed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystems. Despite the emergence of a number of competing languages over the years, Java, under Oracle’s stewardship since 2010, remains one of the most widely used languages in software development. It runs on 3 billion devices worldwide, and is used by more than 12 million developers. In recognition of this milestone in Java’s evolution, we sought the insight of people who regularly work with Java. We wanted their perspectives on the significance of this anniversary, and on the intersection of Java and their lives, professional and otherwise. As you'll hear, for these people, Java is so much more than a technology.

#356: Developer Evolution: What's rockin’ roles in IT?
The good news is that the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 24% growth in software developer jobs through 2026. That’s well above average. The outlook for database administrators certainly isn’t bleak, but with projected job growth of 11% to 2026, that’s less than half the growth projected for developers. Job growth for system administrators, at 6% through 2016, is considered average by the BLS. So while the news is positive all around, developers certainly have an advantage. But there is another story behind those numbers. Powerful forces are driving change in long-established IT roles.

#353: Pizza, Beer, and Dev Expertise at Your Local Meet-up
Meet-ups, offer a fantastic alternative to big developer conferences. They’re easily accessible local events, generally lasting a couple of hours. Meet-ups offer a more human scale, are far less crowded than big conferences, with a far more casual, informal atmosphere that can be much more conducive to learning through Q&A and hands-on activities. In this program you’ll meet four people who have organized and continue to manage local developer meet-ups. You’ll hear first-hand what they learned about what works and what doesn’t in finding venues, developing content, and creating an atmosphere that keeps developers coming back for more.

#352: Beyond Chatbots: An AI Odyssey
Chatbots. You’ve heard of them. You’ve read about them. You may even be involved in developing them.

Instead, the panel discusses the AI work they're currently involved in, the AI challenges they face, and other issues relevant to developing AI solutions. View the complete show notes.
