This is just a friendly reminder that I'll be talking at this year's DOAG Oracle conference about "Cost-Based Optimizer Basics" on Thursday, the 22nd of November, "Raum 1" at 13:00.

And soon the technical content will be back at this blog where I have lots of interesting stuff in the pipeline, mainly covering Parallel Execution topics.
