The Oracle Applications User Experience team has partnered with a sub-set of Oracle ACE Directors to create the Fusion User Experience Advocates (FXA) program. FXA members are ACE Directors who receive ongoing, unique, and unparalleled training from the Oracle Applications User Experience team to deliver presentations about the Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience. They are committed to spreading the word about the Oracle Fusion Applications User Experience.
Each Advocate customizes the Fusion Applications User Experience message for their particular technology focus, be it applications, database, or middleware.
You can catch FXA presentations at user group conferences around the world, or request a presentation for your local group directly. Check the Usable Apps Events page for upcoming presentations by members of this group at a user group conference near you.
