I have been in the position of Web Minister for close to five years now. I am insanely proud of the systems that have arisen and the army of people that have come together to make it all possible. I am also at a point now where I feel confident that another can step into the role of Kingdom Web Minister and not be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of technology that must be managed on top of managing the administrative side of things.
To that end, I am seeking applications for my eventual replacement. If you are interested in serving as Kingdom Web Minister, please send me an email at [email protected] with your pertinent qualifications. I would like to make a decision by the end of January and have that person shadow me through Coronation and Crown tournament.
Secondly, I have an opportunity for someone to gain real world IT experience and learn the inner workings of the Kingdom Services portal that has been built on an Oracle Database and Oracle’s Application Express (APEX) tool. This is an apprenticeship where I will teach a person the basics of database administration, application development with APEX and Oracle’s PL/SQL Programming language, technologies that are used in many corporate environments. I am hoping to build up the knowledge base of the Kingdom such that not all of the knowledge of how things run under the hood is concentrated in one place, and to allow someone to learn modern data administration in a less stressful environment than business yet has a relevancy beyond the very basics.
If you are up for this challenge, or have questions about what it will entail, please send me an email at [email protected] and I would be happy to discuss things with you.
In service, I remain,Baron Rijckaert vanUtrecht, OPKingdom Web Minister
