Oracle ACE Spotlight Raj Mattamal, Oracle ACE Director
Co-President of Niantic Systems, LLC., Raj Mattamal started developing web applications at Oracle in 1995 with the very same people who came to create Oracle Application Express. With over 10 years tenure with the company he helped customers in a wide range of industries deliver web based solutions on the Oracle Database. In addition to helping customers with their applications, Raj developed numerous web applications for use internally at Oracle. Outside of database application development, Raj spent much remaining time with Oracle evangelizing the Oracle Application Express. This entailed teaching Oracle software development and APEX classes globally, writing articles for Oracle Magazine, Technotes for the Oracle Technology Network, and assisting with the development of training material and workshops. Since leaving Oracle in 2006, and without missing a beat, Raj has continued to passionately evangelize Oracle Application Express and its related technologies in publications and speaking at events across the globe.
Beyond obsessing over technology, Raj enjoys playing guitar, performing arts, and all things music.
