New Oracle ACE Director: Dr. Frank Munz

If you work with Oracle WebLogic the chances are good that at some point you've encountered the work of Dr. Frank Munz. Based in Munich, Frank is a prolific writer and frequent speaker on WebLogic and middleware in general. In addition to his blog, Frank maintains a YouTube channel that features videos focused primarily on Oracle WebLogic and Oracle Coherence. He is the author of two books, Middleware and Cloud Computing (2012, ISBN-10: 0980798000) and Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: Distinctive Recipes (2013, ISBN-10: 0980798019), has presented at a number of DOAG, AUSOUG, SOUG events, and has contributed to a number of papers on computer science.

In 2011 Frank was named Oracle Magazine Technologist of the Year in the Cloud Architect category for his work in optimizing SOA, cloud, Java EE, and Oracle Fusion Middleware solutions.

On the basis of his considerable experience and community contributions Dr.Frank Munz was recently awarded Oracle ACE Director status. Check out his Oracle ACE Director profile here, which includes links to his blog and Twitter account.

In January 2013 I spoke with Frank about his books, his blog, and his community activities. You can watch that conversation in this video.
