Tell us about your role in a couple of sentences: I began my Oracle career twenty four years ago, working with Oracle Forms version 2 and Report*Writer working at several software companies in The Netherlands.
Sixteen years ago, I was hired to work in Oracle Support Services for the Developer competency, assisting customers in solving software problems. This involved supporting Oracle Forms, Oracle Reports, Application Express, Rest Data Services, SQL*plus, SQL Developer and Oracle Database Service Cloud.
During those years, I applied my expertise by coaching new engineers, team leading and teaching Application Express courses for Oracle University. For the past three years, I have been involved with the Oracle Cloud project.
I am also a member of the Platform as a Service (Paas) readiness team, who test Application Express in the cloud and in this capacity, I provided foundation training for this technology.
I am also a frequent speaker for various Oracle User Groups including the UK Oracle User Group, presenting talks on Application Express.
One of my responsibilities in Oracle Support is that of Global Technical Lead for Application Express. I work closely with sustaining engineering, product development and product management from the Application Express team.
