Supposing you've got data as a text string with "row" and "column" delimiters and you would like to parse out those columns and rows.

Day 1? Really, is that all? There are so many things going on it feels like day 3.
And I'm not even participating in everything since I'm also coming back to do some family time each day.
I gave this a go this morning after not being able to find Kent on the first day. It was interesting and there were some good exercises that everyone should consider doing in the morning, though (more...)
If you're at Kscope15 (even if you're not!), do you realise there is another set of conversations going on beyond the talks and beyond the between-session banter?
It's online of course, and it's on Twitter. It's live; it's interactive; and it's worth 'listening' to, if not contributing as well.

Just a brief summary of the status of Escope so far - I know it's very very early and too early to even tell whether it'll become real or not, but anyway ... ;-)

Kscope15 officially kicked off on Sunday with a set of symposiums, I stayed in the APEX room the whole day, though I really wanted to hear what Steven Feuerstein had to say after lunch in the other room. I also hear a great discussion was had in the ADF room on tablet first vs mobile first.

Jonathan Lewis hat für AllThingsOracle eine neue Serie Basics of the Cost Based Optimizer gestartet und liefert damit vermutlich eine neue Standardreferenz zum Thema. Allerdings weist der Autor darauf hin, dass die Serie eher einführenden Charakter besitzt und nicht allzu sehr auf die technischen Details eingeht, weshalb ich meine Zusammenfassungen eher knapp zu halten gedenke:
In my last post
, I wrote about a dream of a European version of ODTUG Kscope
conference - working title "Escope." ;-) We're trying to determine whether it would be feasible to create such a conference - if you haven't already, go and fill out the survey
and help us find out if there's basis for the dream. And send the survey link to you colleagues and friends and network - the more (more...)
Survey time peeps! Simple Yes/No question: Would you like me to hold a DV 2.0 Bootcamp (and private certification) west of the Mississippi? If I set one up a in “America’s Hometown” (really it is even trademarked), The Woodlands, Texas (20 minutes north of Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport), would you come? Since I am an […]
It’s that time of year again; Kscope time, and I’m sure you are as excited as we are. You are most likely spending every moment of your free time reading the never-ending list of sessions trying to decide which ones to attend. Although there are over 300 to choose from, it’s time to bite the bullet and make decisions, because schedules must be made. To help you on your way, Mia, AuraPlayer’s CEO, has compiled a (more...)
