When user experience meets developers – 24 posts and counting

Chris Muir, one of the newly hatched Fusion User Experience Advocates trained by the Oracle Applications User Experience team, recently raised a request to our team. He asked whether an Oracle Apps UX person would be willing to chat to an online community that he plays host to, the Oracle Application Development Framework Enterprise Methodology Groups (ADF EMG).

Chris thought it was a bit off-topic to ask an Apps person to come chat to a group of ADF developers, but I thought it was a brilliant request. Ultan O’Broin, Director of Global User Experiences for Oracle, was game for the challenge and stepped into the fray.

We thought there might be a bit of interest, but we were clearly not prepared for the explosion of interest that has proven out on the thread. Kudos to Chris for leading the charge, and to Ultan for writing volumes of content that is effectively a downloadable ebook on user experience for ADF developers. To all of the ADF EMG members, keep the questions coming.

If you would like to read or join the conversation (you must contact the owner to join), you can find them here.

Some of my favorite bits from the thread so far:

Chris Muir:
“Wow. I go to bed with the discussion just starting, and I come back to find a huge amount of information. What sorely impresses me is the amount of work behind the scenes for Fusion Apps. From a customer perspective (and a fortunate one who has attended a number of Oracle-related conferences with Fusion Apps content), I still don't think it's conveyed how much work Oracle has put in behind the scenes on this new suite of products. It's not just been an exercise in writing code. Awesome stuff and thanks for sharing.”

Amr Gawish:
“First of all, I would like first to say WOW! It's like when Ultan came with his hyperlinks, I discovered a new place in oracle website, some place where I didn't even think it exist ... A beautiful place indeed, even the UI is better and more smooth!”

Jean-Marc Desvaux:
“Interesting posts and links. Plenty great content to read ... I think I have to blame Chris & Ultan for having diverted my time to an addictive subject that was not in my diary.  :O) Thanks for that.”

Comments:

Only delighted to be able to engage so easily with the ADF EMG folks: Australia, Mauritius, UK, Ireland, US, it's all doable. And what a conversation: Usability best practices for IT professionals, resources, enterprise apps UX, ADF Change Persistence Framework, localization... Phew! Here's to more of those kind of exchanges! Thanks to Chris and Misha for the inception.
