Developer Advocate for Open Source
Blaine Carter

Blaine Carter is the Oracle developer advocate for open source. He applies his exploratory eye and tinkering inclinations to the intersection of open source and Oracle Database. He helps database developers improve their workflow using open source tools and promotes the use of open source inside and outside of Oracle. Blaine started programming in 1995. For most of his career, he has used Oracle tools to build applications. Blaine has worked with Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports and even created a framework to generate web applications using PL/SQL similar to Oracle Application Express. He has done a little Java, both inside and outside the database, and of course a whole bunch of SQL and PL/SQL. Blaine is a firm believer in learning by doing, failing, figuring it out, and then sharing.
