POUG 2018

I just returned from a great Technical Oracle Conference hosted in Poland by my friends Kamil (@ora600pl) and Luiza (@LuizafromPoland)! They were kind enough to allow me to speak on the topics of SQL Translation Framework and Advanced Query Rewrite. It was my second year in a row to attend this conference and I must say I was extremely impressed by the content and the speakers and the venue and the professional handling of the logistics. Great job all around! I’d highly recommend this conference, so stay tuned for announcements on POUG 2019. Here’s a shot of the Enkitec guys that spoke at the conference: @phurley @JulianDontcheff @fritshoogland

Hotsos Symposium 2018

Just a quick note to say I’m doing a couple of talks at this year’s Hotsos Symposium, which starts next Monday at 8:30AM. It’s not too late to register.

As an enticement – here is one of my favorite pictures from last year’s event: (Come join the fun!)

DOAG 2016

I had a great time at DOAG 2016. It’s one of the best run conferences I’ve been to! I did a quick cameo during the keynote to talk about performance in Oracle’s cloud. Nothing like being on stage with a guy wearing a tie. :) Thanks Andrew for inviting me to say a few words.

Oracle Cloud Performance Testing Results


 

That was fun!

Then I did a couple of technical talks.

The first was on SQL Translation Framework. The second was supposed to be a workshop where I just logged on to a system and ran through some of my scripts for controlling execution plans. Unfortunately the computer gods were not with me and I had to fall back to power point instead. So I did an abbreviated version of my Controlling Execution Plans (without touching the code) talk instead.

Anyway, I had a great time. Please let me know if you have any questions.

My Favorite Scripts – 2016

I did a talk at the Dallas Oracle Users Group Technical Training Day which was held on Oct 20th. The title was My Favorite Scripts and basically talked through some of the scripts I use most often and logged on to a system and showed how they work. I promised I would upload the presentation and a zip file here. So here you go.

I had a great time doing the talk. I hope you found it useful. Please let me know if you have any questions.
