I am a user experience advocate for Oracle. So, ask me about usability then...

Growing that Applications User Experience ecosystem globally, January 2012 saw innovative use of social media by the Fusion User Experience Advocates (FXAs). Responding to FXA Chris Muir's (@chriscmuir) LinkedIn call, I contributed a Reddit "I am an astronaut..." style post to the Application Development Framework Enterprise Methodology Group's (ADF EMG) online forum about user experience. I explained to a worldwide audience (700+ members) what user experience is and about the tangible benefits for apps developers and implementors in finding and engaging users throughout the process of building enterprise apps. The discussion ranged from top usability tips and tricks to the more complex use of ADF persistence framework for tailoring and bidirectional support for international apps. A lot of energy and information!

Watch out for more of these two-ways. Implementors and developers get to hear about Apps-UX expertise and resources available and Apps-UX gets to hear what IT professionals really need when making usability part of their development efforts. A big success, one ADF EMG respondent said the exchange "very informative and constructive discussion, and it's really amazing to see how the Fusion product was design with UX in mind" while another said, as a result, he's now "participated in a Usability study for new JDev UI features and more to come!"

Here's to more of these types of engagements and exchanges. What other job would let me talk about ADF componentsna and usability with people and the Middle East within a matter of minutes! Love it.
