I just want to take the time to introduce myself. A little bit about me:

    "name": "Neil Fernandez",
    "current_employer": "Insum Solutions",
    "email": "[email protected]",
    "started_with_apex": "2016",
    "interests": [
        "Oracle APEX",
        "RESTFul Web Services",
        "Integrating APEX with 3rd party APIs",
        "Web Development",
        "Craft beer",
        "Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, MMA (combat sports)",
        "Real Estate",

I started working for Insum Solutions almost 4 years ago as an intern in January of 2016. I joined Insum fresh out of college and it has been quite the experience being able to work alongside some of the best Oracle APEX experts in the world.

Insum Solutions is a world leader when it comes to Oracle technologies with expertise in Oracle Application Express (APEX). Working alongside such amazing leaders has really inspired me to pursue blogging. It is hard not to be inspired when you are surrounded by these indiviudals!

I also am a part-time graduate student at Georgia Tech currently enrolled in the OMSCS program. I love challenges and this program has been one of my greatest challenges so far. I have been dabbling in a variety of classes and am planning to specialize in Interactive Intelligence or Machine Learning within the next year.

Outside of work and school I spend most of my time with my wife, dog, cats, and training mixed martial arts (MMA). Most of that time is dedicated to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, and kick boxing, with majority of my time doing BJJ. I would consider myself a people-enthusiast. I like good company and conversation and even better beer.

I am hoping with this blog that I am able to refer to past problems I have solved and that they are useful to you all as well.

I plan to blog mainly about web development, Oracle APEX, and technology but I also may share some of my personal ventures.

Thank you to my mentors and collegues for all the lessons and inspiration thus far!
