Celebrating 5 years in Oracle's Mexico Development Center

By Sarahi Mireles, Oracle Applications User Experience

As you may know, Oracle has a couple Development Centers around the globe, and one of them is in Guadalajara, México. The Oracle Mexico Development Center, aka Oracle MDC (where I work), was 5 years old on Aug. 18, and the celebration was just as tech-y and fun as it can be for a development center.


Oracle staff hang out at the event before lunch.


Staff from the 9th floor of Oracle MDC have fun and celebrate 5 years of Oracle in Mexico (hurray!)

The celebration was split in two events, an open event called "Plug in" and a private event (just Oracle staff). Topics were related to what we love: Database, Cloud and, of course, User Experience. Some of the guest speakers were Hector García, who was chairman of the Computer Science Department at Stanford University; Javier Cordero, Managing Director of Oracle México; Jeremy Ashley, Group Vice President, Applications User Experience, and Erik Peterson, General Manager of Oracle MDC.


Hector García Molina starts with his talk, "Thoughts on the Future Recommendation Systems," with students and Oracle staff.


Andrew Mendelsohn, Executive Vice President, Database Server Technologies, gives a talk at the event.


Cheers at the conference. It was a really fun event. Geeks knows how to have fun!

Late in the afternoon, the real celebration started! We got to celebrate with all of our friends, colleagues, mates and the whole staff of Oracle MDC, and we all got to be in the anniversary picture of this awesome team, team Oracle!


Members of different teams (UX, UAE) hang out at the celebration.


This year, we all received this fun, handmade airplane as a gift to remember the 5th anniversary of Oracle MDC.

So, Sten... what would you prototype in?

Sten Vesterli posted an interesting blog a while back on his view about why you might choose ADF vs. APEX when building new applications or new applications pages. 

Sten, for the organization looking at using ADF, I'd love to know what recommendations you would have for prototyping a user interface prior to actually digging into ADF.  We have our fancy art tools as UX professionals, but what could an IT person do today - no net new software needed - to start creating a mockup of a screen design that they intend to build in ADF?
