As I recently blogged, APEX Evangelists is undergoing a transformation (stay tuned for what that means for me).
We are very happy to announce that Paul Broughton (Twitter – @paulbroughton) has joined the AE Network!
For those of you who don’t know Paul, he started working for APEX Evangelists back in July 2009 (wow time flies!) and has been involved in many client facing projects (and very recently was presented with an award from a very happy client!).
Paul has grown as an APEX Developer and has been a valuable member of the team year on year and I’m sure he’ll continue to do so.
Congratulations Paul and welcome to the AE Network!
Every year we at APEX Evangelists come together to discuss the past and the future of the company.
In the past 7 years a lot has changed; the APEX market changed, the community changed, we personally changed, …
We really like APEX, we are all passionate about it, we love to have technical discussions with each other and come together to share our thoughts, but we also like our independence and make our own trade-offs company wise.
So we decided to go a different route with “APEX Evangelists”. And that’s why we’re now in the midst of transforming APEX Evangelists from a company to a network.
A network of APEX experts. A network without any financial incentive behind it. A network of independent people that are passionate about APEX. A network of recognised experts in the Oracle community. A network with members that can rely on each other and trust each other.
You can also become part of this network, but only by invitation and acceptance by the other members.
We love to compare us with the Oaktable network, which is a network of experts for the Oracle database. We hope that “APEX Evangelists network” will be the same for Oracle Application Express.
The first addition to the APEX Evangelists network is Martin Giffy D’Souza and we hope to grow the network further in the next months.
The new website of APEX Evangelists is live which reflects the network now, you find it at http://www.apex-evangelists.com
