Technology has driven so much change that people have become nearly oblivious to all but the most dramatic innovations. But it’s important to remember that each wave of the innovation began with a single keystroke, one character in a line of code, then another, then another. It’s important to remember that the finger pressing down on that key is attached to a human being. A developer.
Developers drive change, and change, in turn, drives developers. It’s a perpetual evolutionary cycle that requires perpetual adaptation at both the individual and the organizational level.
There’s a major shift happening in technology — and at Oracle. This evolution is powered by a diverse population of software developers. In adapting to this evolution, the Oracle Technology Network has now become the Oracle Developer Community, and over the past year we’ve created programs to support people building modern, open, cloud-native applications.
Developer Champions have expertise in modern software and cloud development, including microservices, containers, DevOps, continuous delivery, open source technologies, and SQL/NoSQL databases. These professionals are contributors to open source projects, authors on contemporary development approaches, and speakers at prominent Oracle (Oracle Code, JavaOne) and top industry conferences such as Devoxx, Developer Week, Velocity, and QCon. Meet the New Developer Champion Program.
In this international series of free events developers learn about the latest technologies, practices, and trends from technical experts, industry leaders, and other developers in keynotes, sessions, and hands-on labs. And to make sure every developer has access to these content, Oracle Code Online brings the same content and experts directly to your screen. More information...
