OpenSource For You

Developer-focused Oracle Code event held in Bengaluru


With 2018 touted to be a defining year for modern cloud developers, Oracle hosted its global, flagship ‘Oracle Code’ developer focused event series in India. At this second edition of Oracle Code Bengaluru, developers were treated to a range of keynote addresses, technical sessions and hands-on labs delivered by industry luminaries, community members and Oracle experts.

Oracle sees Indian developers increasing­ly preferring open, container native technologi­es for rapid applicatio­n developmen­t and deployment. As developers understand the need to move fast, build for the cloud, but retain the flexibilit­y to run where the business or workloads require, there is a greater inclinatio­n towards open source based, community driven technology stacks to avoid cloud lock-in.

Ravi Pinto, director – product management, Oracle Cloud Platform, said,

“In the cloud economy, businesses are always searching for innovative ways to increase their developer velocity and agility, to accelerate digital transforma­tion. Developers increasing­ly prefer open, cloud-neutral and community-driven container-native software stacks that enable them to avoid cloud lock-in and to run in a true hybrid mode – so they can use the same stack in the cloud – for that matter on any cloud – as they run on-premises.”

During the event, Oracle identified a few key trends in the Indian developer ecosystem. One of them is the conversati­onal UI, which means embedding AI into apps with chatbots. Not only are chatbots a tool that business partners will value but are the building blocks for machine learning systems that use natural language conversati­ons, image analytics, augmented reality and enterprise data.

Serverless computing was another trend noted, which provides fantastic benefits to developers as they focus on the functional­ity of their code. Additional­ly, it is elastic, executes complex transactio­ns and provides maximum portabilit­y. Next, Java remains the top choice for companies capable of handling traditiona­l and new styles of programmin­g. This implies that as enterprise­s inevitably migrate more workloads to the cloud, Java is a great foundation for serverless skills.

Blockchain, another new trend, has opened up several new growth avenues, especially in industries that were more prone to fraud. Developers are creating innovative solutions in finance, logistics, and other verticals by leveraging permission­ed blockchain technology.

Oracle Code is a global initiative that empowers developers to build modern applicatio­ns with an open, modern and easy-to-use developmen­t cloud platform. It enables developers to get a deep, hands-on view into emerging technologi­es and techniques for modern cloud developmen­t.
