New workshop "Exadata For Developers"

Just a short note that I've developed a new two day course that covers all relevant features that a database application developer should know when dealing with the Oracle Exadata Database Machine platform.

It covers in detail Smart Scans, the Exadata Flash Cache, Hybrid Columnar Compression and all surrounding features like Storage Indexes, (serial) direct path reads etc. etc.. Of course it also includes features that were added in 12c, like Attribute Clustering and Zone Maps.

All features are presented with live demo scripts, and there will be enough time to discuss your specific questions and analyse existing applications if desired.

For more information and details, check the corresponding pages:

German: Exadata für Anwendungsentwickler

Upcoming Public Appearances

It's that time of the year again... I'll be speaking at the following events:

- SSWUG 2016 Fall Virtual Conference: On November 15th I'll do the geeky stuff that was rejected by DOAG this year, which is "Oracle Database Parallel Execution plans deep dive - understanding the internals of Parallel Execution plans". You should only attend this session if you already have a good understanding of serial execution plans.

- DOAG Conference 2016: On November the 16th I'll present "Oracle Database Cloud Performance" where I talk about my experience regarding the performance of the Oracle DBaaS offerings. Note that some printed conference schedule material is outdated, I'll speak at 3pm, not 10am
