As we approach the end of a year and the start of a new one, it's a good time to start considering new challenges and opportunities. We'd like to suggest Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) is a good choice to investigate in 2016 as the enterprise world increasingly adopts mobile solutions.
Oracle Mobile Cloud Service has a simple premise, to accelerate enterprise mobile development by simplifying common mobile development tasks like integration, push notifications, user management, data offline synchronization and more, regardless if you're working with Android, iOS, Oracle Mobile Application Framework and other mobile platforms. Personally having spoken about MCS to many clients since the introduction of MCS mid 2015, there is a certain point in every discussion around their mobile plans where they don't first understand the worth of MCS as they learn the platform, but then there's a near audible "click", and all the ideas thereafter can't imagine a solution without MCS.
To help you with your 2016 goals Oracle have published a free YouTube training channel on Oracle Mobile Cloud Service. And we think you'll find this set of videos special, as it was specifically designed to be easily digestible. Rather than the 1hr+ slog many other technical videos follow, this channel uses videos typically around 10minutes in length so you can fit them in while catching the bus, squeezing some time in between meetings, or just sitting there trying to digest your Christmas lunch!
The overall channel can be found here, but, it is also broken into several playlists so you can watch videos relating to specific topic areas you are interested in:
- MCS: Oracle Mobile Cloud Service Overview
- MCS: Mobile Backends
- MCS: Platform APIs & Mobile Client SDK
- MCS: User Management Services
- MCS: Notifications API
- MCS: Storage API
- MCS: Analytics API
- MCS: Data Offline API
- MCS: Connector API
- MCS: Custom API Interfaces
- MCS: Custom API Implementations
- MCS: Logging & Diagnostics
Alternatively if you want to just look at the "big picture" and skip the details, or are only interested in MCS from an Android and iOS perspective, we've also created playlists that gather just the pertinent videos for you:
Oh and of course if you're interested in picking up Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) we have an array of videos ready for you too:
- MAF: Introduction and Overview
- MAF: Designing and Developing a MAF Application
- MAF: UI Development in Oracle MAF
- MAF: Working with Data and Web Services
- MAF: Working with the Local SQLite database
- MAF: Integrating with Device Services
- MAF: Oracle MAF Security
- MAF: Debugging and Logging
Overall once the New Year rolls in, Oracle has you covered in helping you learn these new products in 2016.
