SOA Blackbelt training by David Shaffer, April 30th–May 4th 2012

A lot of you knew David Shaffer as the VP of Product Management for Oracle’s SOA and BPM technology. As you may already be aware, Dave left Oracle last summer to take some time off with his family and explore some ideas that he had under the umbrella of his new company, Middleworks. One of those is that there is a gap in deep training offerings around the SOA Suite and its internals. As such, Middleworks has worked with the SOA product team to offer an advanced workshop based on the "SOA Blackbelt training" previously delivered by the product management team. This will be jointly offered by Middleworks and Exilor and led by Roman Dobrik of Exilor, who was acquired into Oracle along with Dave from Collaxa. The initial offering of this class is in the San Francisco Bay Area April 30 to May 4. Agenda and registration details can be found at:

Offerings for other geographies are being considered in the future, but if you want to be sure to have a seat in this class, register now! You can get additional information or reconnect with Dave at
