Robert van Mölken

Oracle ACE and Developer Champion

Robert van molken

If you’ve heard of Blockchain or the Internet of Things, then you’ve most likely heard of Oracle ACE and Developer Champion Robert van Mölken. Robert was awarded Oracle ACE Associate in 2015, Oracle ACE in 2016 and Developer Champion in 2017. As his designations expanded, so have his areas of expertise. Robert started his professional career as a graphic designer and web developer but soon shifted his focus to Fusion Middleware. Robert is now a senior Application Integration specialist at AMIS with over 11 years of IT experience.

Robert’s transition from building service-oriented business processes using Fusion Middleware 12c, towards connecting the physical world with the world of IoT using Oracle Cloud offerings and open source solutions has helped him become a leader in this emerging technology. He is co-author of the first Oracle PaaS book Implementing Oracle Integration Cloud Service, and is in the final stages of publishing his next book, Blockchain Across Oracle. To find out more about Robert’s introduction to Blockchain check out this article or you can attend Robert’s session at Oracle OpenWorld!

Robert is also heavily involved in the Oracle developer community. He is an international speaker, blogger, board member of the Dutch Oracle User Group (nlOUG), and SIG meetup organizer. He works closely with the SOA Oracle Product Management team participating in Beta programs and takes what he learns and applies it to new presentations, blog posts, and community engagement.

A fun fact about Robert is he started developing video games at age nine and still plays them today on his PS4.
