As I already mentioned in my previous blog post, I attended the BGOUG (Bulgarian Oracle User Group) Spring Conference last week. It was my second time to attend BGOUG conferences, and as usual, it was a great organization. I’m really impressed how Milena Gerova and BGOUG Conference Team can organize such a successful event.
At the conference, I gave two speeches, one was “Linux Essential Commands for DBAs”, and the other one was “Oracle Enterprise (more...)
I attended the BGOUG Spring Conference last week as a speaker. While in BGOUG Conference, I had a chance to listen Kamil Stawiarski’s session about hacking Oracle. Kamil spoke about potential security issues of high level privileges such as create any index and create directory. At the end of the session, he also showed a tool written by himself. The tool (I do not remember its name right now), reads a datafile, searches for object (more...)
If you didn’t come this page from my review about the OUGF Harmony16 Spring Conference, please don’t forget to read it. This post is generated almost automatically by scripts to share the twitter statistics of the conference. The statistics cover the period between May 17 and May 20. I included three hashtags (#OUGF, #OUGF16, #Harmony16), because at the beginning of the conference, people (including me) did not used the official hashtag (#Harmony16).
Last week I took part in the OUGF (Oracle User Group Finland) Harmony 16 Spring Conference. It was a two day event, and held in Helsinki, between May 18th and 19th. In the conference, I gave two speeches: “Essential Linux commands for DBAs” and “Enterprise Manager 13c for DBAs”. Most people expect to me to speak about Enterprise Manager but in my first session, I spoke about the tools which can be used for monitoring (more...)
TROUG Days İstanbul was held last week (April 28th to 29th) at İstanbul Technical University Technopark. I think we used social media, specially twitter very effective, so I wanted to publish some twitter statistics about the event like I did for OUGN Spring Event. The statistics cover the period between April 27 and April 30.
Before sharing the twitter statistics, I would like to write a few words about the event. I feel very proud (more...)
I wanted to import a datapump dumpfile to my laptop, and I wondered if I can install Oracle XE to ubuntu guest. I thought it would be easy because I installed Oracle 10g XE to ubuntu for several times, but I saw that Oracle doesn’t provide debian packages for Oracle 11g XE. So I needed to convert the RPM to debian package (and fix incompatibility problems). Therefor, I installed “alien” package and other required tools (more...)
Yesterday, one of my blog readers asked me how I didn’t encounter ORA-20251 error when upgrading my EM12c to EM13c. He also pointed My Oracle Support document (Doc ID 2095025.1). The document says a new record will be inserted into EM_COST_CENTERS table (in fact the table name is EM_COST_CENTERS_E but it’s not relevant) for all users whose department value is not blank during the upgrade. If there are more than one records with blank (more...)
I’m very proud to announce that I am accepted as an Oracle ACE Director. Now I’m part of a special club which has only 133 members (for now) in the world. It’s surely a milestone for my carrier. I would like to thank to Gurcan Orhan, Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, Jeff Smith, Julian Dontcheff, Kamran Aghayev and Heli Helskyaho for being reference for my ACED nomination. I would also like to (more...)
As I mentioned in my previous post, OUGN Spring event is held on a cruise ship which does round trips between Oslo and Kiel. As I heard from other speakers, in previous years, there were not internet connection on the boat and people were totally isolated from the world (and social media). This year, we had internet connection almost everywhere even in our cabins. So we were able to use tweeter during the event. (more...)
Between March 9th and 12th, I was in Oslo to speak at OUGN 2016 Spring Conference. It is my first time in Norway, so I thought it will be very cold and therefore I prepared well (brought thickest clothes with me) but the weather was surprisingly calm although the thermometer indicates 1-2 degrees celsius. I attended to the speakers dinner organized by OUGN Conference Committee. The dinner was great and I had a change to (more...)
