You asked. We came. We were already there.
In November, the Oracle México Development Center (MDC) in Guadalajara hosted the ORAMEX Tech Day 2015 event. This great location gave the Grupo de Usuarios Oracle de México (the Oracle User Group in México) (@oramexico) access to the very strong technical community in the region, and attendees from Guadalajara and surrounding cities such as Colima, León, and Morelia heard MDC General Manager Erik Peterson kick off the proceedings with a timely keynote on the important role that MDC (now celebrating its 5th year) plays in delivering Oracle products and services.

Naturally, Tech Day was also a perfect opportunity for the Oracle Applications User Experience (UX) team to support our ORAMEX friends with the latest and greatest UX outreach.

UX team members from the U.S., Senior Manager UX Product and Program Management Tim Dubois (@timdubis) and Senior Manager Emerging Tech Development Noel Portugal (@noelportugal), joined local staffers Senior UX Design Developer Rafa Belloni (@rafabelloni) and UX Developer Sarahi Mireles (@sarahimireles) to demo the latest UX technical resources for the community, to bring everyone up to speed on the latest UX cloud strategy and messages, and to take the pulse of the local market for our cloud UX and innovation enablement and outreach.
Tim and Sarahi demoed the latest from the Release 10 Simplified UI PaaS4SaaS Rapid Development Kit (RDK) and Rafa and Noel showed off cool Internet of Things proof of concept innovations; all seamlessly part of the same Oracle UX cloud strategy.
Sarahi leading and winning with the RDK
Tim and Sarahi provided a dual-language (in English and Spanish), real-time, exploration of what the RDK is, why you need it, what it contains, and how you get started.
The long view: Tim explains that the RDK is part of an overall enablement strategy for the Oracle Cloud UX: Simple to use, simple to build, simple to sell solutions.

ORAMEX Tech Day 2015 was a great success, representing an opportunity for OAUX to collaborate with, and enable, a local technical community and Oracle User Group, to demonstrate, in practical ways, our commitment to bringing that must-have cloud UX message and resources to partners and customers worldwide, and of course, to show examples of the awesome role the MDC UX team plays within Oracle.
Where will we go next? I wonder…
