Congrats to the Oracle Apex Developer Competition 2009 Winners

Product manager David Peake has announced the winners of the Oracle Application Express (Apex) Developer Competition:

First Place: Eric Brandenburg, USA
Second Place: Oscar Gordillo, Colombia
Third Place: Matt Nolan, UK

....with 4th-through-12th place winners from Nigeria, Germany, India, and elsewhere around the world.

The premise of the competition, announced in June 2009, was to seek the "best" application (as determined by a panel of judges) of Oracle Application Express to a business problem. The guidelines were quite detailed.

Eric's app, IT Access, is designed to track the assignment of physical IT assets and/or application access to employees - with one of the main goals being to decommission those assignments when an employee leaves the company.

I'll be speaking with Eric in person during Oracle OpenWorld (to which he has won a free pass), as preparation for a write-up in Oracle Magazine about IT Access.

Congrats to Eric, and to all the other winners!


Thank you.

Winning the competition is a huge honor.
For those that would like to see the IT Access application in more detail, I'll be reviewing it at an Unconference - Monday 10/12 @1PM.

I look forward to speaking with you in a couple of weeks at Open World.
