The fabe team is building an app to help people stop climate change and human-caused extinctions by following a new 3Rs for the 21st century: reduce consumption, rescue species, and reconnect with nature. The team is all volunteer and distributed across the globe. We are using a 100% Oracle stack (Oracle Database on the Cloud, APEX and ORDS) to offer a mobile experience. We faced a number of challenges including:

  • How to make APEX work for a paradigm that is outside its “sweet spot”
  • Create an efficient workflow to take an idea through UI design to development and automated tests
  • Optimize interactions across cultures and timezones
  • Manage work-life balance and expectations
