Ray Tindall Oracle

Ray Tindall

As a 15+ year veteran of Sage Ray is one of our most experienced Oracle professionals. He has evolved his skills from the Developer Suite through Portal and onto the likes of Application Express and JDeveloper. Ray has also sidelined significant focus into the depths of the Oracle Middle Tier products originating with Application Server and, moving with the times, the world of Weblogic. Ray's foray into the Middle Tier has included installation, configuration and administration as well as security and integration projects involving both Oracle and 3rd party products. In the fine Sage tradition of not being backward in stepping forward, Ray is known to present the odd and often "left of field" paper at the AUSOUG National Conferences and user group meetings.

Eddie's focus is on the cutting edge areas of JDeveloper ADF. With a background in traditional Oracle Forms development he is now working on modernising those old Forms systems to create shiny new JDeveloper applications. If we can tear him away from JDeveloper, he is also an expert at building Apex systems that look like real applications. Eddie has been published in AUSOUG's Foresight magazine, has presented at the AUSOUG conference, and was once referred to by a client as "every mother's dream".
