I’m Kathryn Gamble and have been working with Oracle Apex since about 2006. I’m based in rural Cumbria and have worked freelance for about 20 years both as an Oracle DBA and an Apex Developer.
I’ve found that each of these areas helps the other – I’ve used Apex to make DBA tasks easier and more efficient and my performance tuning background has influenced my Apex applications.
I have often been the only Oracle skilled person on site so bouncing ideas around isn’t always possible. The Oracle Apex community is great and I attend meetups and events whenever I can.
I was recently persuaded to share of my experiences in a blog so here goes.
