Jorge Rimblas

Jorge Rimblas has been an Oracle Database professional since 1995. While he has expertise in multiple areas including Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Database and development technologies, he has been using Oracle APEX since it was called HTMLDB and in 2008 made it his primary focus area. Currently Jorge is a senior Oracle APEX consultant at Insum and has been awarded Oracle ACE since 2014.

Jorge prides himself on using his creativity and knowledge to help companies in varying industries bring their projects to life using Oracle APEX. In addition to his UI and Theme experience he is an avid problem solver that thrives in finding elegant and efficient solutions to customer problems.

In addition to helping customers find solutions to their problems, Jorge values his interactions with the Oracle developer community. He has taught Oracle APEX to dozens of people and has spoken at several international conferences like Oracle OpenWorld, RMOUG, ODTUG’s Kscope and local user group conferences like UTOUG, ECO, and COUG. Jorge is currently part of the conference committee for ODTUG’s Kscope 19 conference and is the Content Chair for Traditional Content which covers the Oracle APEX and Database tracks.

Jorge is a co-author of the book Expert Oracle Application Express, Second Edition, and he’s working on a new edition to Beginning Oracle Application Express for release 18.1.

Jorge moved to the United States from Mexico City in 1995. He lives in the suburbs of Minneapolis with his beautiful wife Marie and their two young daughters Marina and Marisol. He works out regularly at Title Boxing Club, where he enjoys going through 8 intense rounds of hitting the punching bags. Additionally, he volunteers at the local BMW Car Club as an instructor. Jorge is a coffee snob, an avid photographer, technology addict, and gadget lover.

See the “Nominate a Developer Champion” section for the technical focus areas of the program.
