Oracle is constantly looking into the future, investing in emerging technologies and innovations to ensure the user experience of tomorrow is intuitive and user-friendly. The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team helps spearhead this research, thanks to the minds behind The AppsLab, the OAUX emerging technologies team.
For the second year in a row, they are pairing with Oracle Code 2018. Oracle Code is a free event that tours the world, offering developers the chance to explore the latest cloud development technologies and best practices as well as learn from industry leaders and experts in keynotes, interactive demos, workshops, and hands-on labs.
Starting the end of February in Los Angeles, Oracle Code events will include a workshop developed by The AppsLab that focuses on the interconnectedness of things and harnessing the power of the Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Service.
This diagram from the OAUX team’s Raymond Xie explains how all the pieces come together for the IoT Workshop.
In preparation for Oracle Code, the workshop was road-tested at both Oracle headquarters in Redwood Shores, Calif., and the Oracle Mexico Development Center in Guadalajara, bringing together designers, developers, and researchers to test out the workshop. Working across mobile platforms, the workshop encourages collaboration, knowledge sharing, and a healthy bit of competition.

Be sure to follow along on Twitter (@TheAppsLab and @OAUXCloud) to see how these workshops are going as Oracle Code travels the world. And, just in case you missed it, here’s a recap of last year’s IoT Workshop, which had a heavy focus on device-side programming such as hardware boards, Arduino IDE programming, and more.
