Just a quick post to say that I’ve had another post published over on Oracle’s blog site about Automating developer setup in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. You can read it at: https://blogs.oracle.com/cloud-infrastructure/post/automating-developer-setup-in-oci
We recently received an invite to write a guest blog post for Oracle. We’re please to say it has gone live, and can be found at https://blogs.oracle.com/cloud-infrastructure/oracle-cloud-infrastructure-logging-and-alert-rapid-smoke-testing-of-config-and-alerts. A little different to my typical posts. Hope you find it interesting.
World Festival Conference
We’ve also scored another success, this time we’ve been invited to speak at WorldFestival in August, this is an online conference organized by the same team behind DeveloperWeek. This is the first time outside of an Oracle linked event where I’ve been amongst the first few named speakers, so proud of that. The conference looks really interesting as it looks beyond just core developer themes with conference tracks on Space & Transportation, Smart Cities, Robotics, Digital Health to name a few of the 12 streams. Worth checking out.
It’s been a quiet month for this blog, but I’ve been pretty busy with a raft of other activities…
- a recent article on our sister site – oracle-integration.cloud on RPA.
- I also appear in an interview with K21 Academy here.
- Reviewing a new book on Enterprise API Management for Packt which we would very highly recommend if you want to understand the more Enterprise perspectives of adopting APIs, particularly if you’re considering APIs as a potential new revenue stream.
- UK Oracle User Group committees for TechFest (having been reviewing the paper submissions it looks like it’s going to be an excellent conference in December) and Southern Summit (next week).
- Just launched a number of sessions for the Oracle London Developer Meetup, with another to be announced soon (Blockchain) and potentially two more before the end of the year (we’re working on the speakers now).
I have a new blog post over on the Capgemini site – https://www.capgemini.com/2018/06/oracle-code-london/ talks about the way Oracle has changed its engagement towards developers and the Oracle Code London event that I presented at – first mentioned at Oracle Code London – Presentation & Periscope Interview
I have been fortunate to be supporting and occasionally contributing to a series of blogs on Chatbots being written by Leon Smiers, Capgemini Oracle Chatbot SME (and also Oracle Ace). The blog posts are:
- Chatbots meeting expectations, introducing the chatbot maturity model
- Chatting with the chatbots? – How intelligence makes the conversation
- Integrating the Chatbot
I’ve been talking with Leon about what next in the blog series, and we can expect to see some more exciting blog posts in the series.
So it has been a busy week in terms of seeing articles published that I’ve at least contributed to. It’s funny the gap between writing and publishing can be several weeks. So whilst we’re thinking about new things we see the twitter pickup etc or work several weeks old.
Anyway, first up was a contribution to Leon Smiers‘ blog on integrating chatbots. The latest in a series of excellent blog posts looking at the capabilities a chatbot solution needs etc. The latest post is about integration, hence my contribution. My contributions to the blog series go back to the conversations Leon and I had whilst at the Oracle Partner event earlier this year. Since then, I have helped Leon by providing a critical eye and offering suggestions.
The big event, has been to have an article published on Oracle Technology Network(OTN). This is a bit of an honour as we where invited to write. My piece can be found at here. It is actually a part of a pair of articles written for OTN. With article was written by Luis Weir, and is the parent article about API management.
My article came about as a result several discussions with Luis whilst travelling to and from a client about the relationship between between microservice registries, load balancers and API Gateways. Particularly as API Gateways have a natural relationship with microservices. I’ll say no more, go read the article.
In addition to this personal site, and the Oracle ICS site we use to support the book, I now also have a company blog at Capgemini as part of their Expert Community which can be found here, along with my Expert Connect profile here.
So far there are only a couple of posts:
