Dear manager or team leader of Oracle professionals,
If you have Oracle professionals in your team –whether they are DBAs, PL/SQL developers or Middleware & ADF specialists – in all cases, personal growth and improving knowledge are important goals for them and thereby for you as well. In this light, there is an international event in The Netherlands in the beginning of June that I would like to point out to you: a unique opportunity (more...)
Developing a solid business case for going to a conference is not always easy. Most of the time the company culture dictates the succes-rate of your attempt.
The necessity for your own development is of great importance to you but is most of the time not the prevailing factor for the company. So how to convince your manager that it is of vital importance for the company that you will attend the conference ?
One of the drives for (more...)
I’ll be at Collaborate 16 next month and looking forward to seeing lots of good friends, learning some new things, and sharing a little experience too. For the last of those, I’ll present 3 sessions, er, more like 2.2 sessions:
Slides are available on slideshare:
Sample application used for the demo, can be downloaded from here (it consists of three parts - WebSocker server implementation, ADF BC tester application to generate continuos DB updates and JET application) - Oracle JET Live List with WebSocket.

Cedar held its annual Oracle Day in Oracle’s City office last Thursday – it was actually our 6th year of running the event. The attendance was great – just short of 100 – and with 3 streams of content there was plenty to choose from. If you weren’t there, here’s the highlights of the sessions that I attended:
After the opening keynote from Dan Woolstone, Oracle’s James King and myself spoke to a full room (more...)
I don’t have an official OOW presentation in the conference this year. However, I am presenting a session at the Oak Table World 2015 event behind held concurrently with OOW 2015. My topic is “Exadata Database Machine Security” and I plan to review some of the newest updates to security for the Exadata Database Machine engineered system.
As the website indicates, the event is completely free and there is no pre-registration or enrollment required–just show (more...)

OAUG has invited me to present as part of their upcoming Best of COLLABORATE ’12 Educational Series. I’ll be delivering the R12 Federal Financials Subledger Accounting Teardown presentation via Webinar on Friday, August 10th, starting at 9AM EDT. This presentation is a deep-dive into most of the key SLA concepts that support the R12 Federal Financials SLA accounting engine. My goal is to share what I’ve learned through 1 1/2 years of supporting one of the most complex Federal R12 upgrades to-date, now live for 5+ months.
Here’s the presentation agenda:
This is free for all OAUG (more...)
I didn’t attend, but there was an Oracle Federal Financial Briefing on 17-Apr in Reston where information was shared about some of the upcoming GTAS enhancements and target patch release dates. Personally, besides focusing on our Fed R12.1.3 stabilization efforts on my current gig, I’m working to get smart on some of the basics associated with GTAS, the upcoming 6-digit USSGL standard and new Federal Accounting/System process changes associated.
As soon as we can get our hands on these new GTAS patches, we need to jump on them to start understanding some of the impacts to our (more...)

During the past week I had the opportunity to assist both the Oracle Performance Firefighting and the
Advanced Oracle Performance Analysis and only can say: awesome!!!
Craig Shallahamer is a great teacher and has a lot of resources to effectively share knowledge, even if
the subject is complex like buffer cache structures or arid like the mathematical foundation required for
perf analysis. That is not all, he provides valuable tips of the trade or anecdote nuggets, dipped on a
very fresh and sometimes humorist perspective.
The result: we started searching for those (more...)
I have plenty of things that are keeping me busy for OOW 2010 and you’ll all get to see the results at the event (if you’re there), but I only have one traditional technical session where I’ll be on stage. I’m presenting the following session jointly with an Oracle Database Machine customer:
Session ID: S316824

Even better than a technical session is the interview and Q&A session I’m doing (more...)
I’m very pleased to report that I will be able to meet up with ODTUG Kaleidoscope attendees at both the ODTUG Community Service Day (2nd Annual!) and my own scuba dive outing as well. If you can, I’d love for you to attend both events. If you’re not a certified scuba diver, then you can at least participate in the Community Service Day festivities and help out the local area while enjoying some California weather too!
For those certified scuba divers that will (or can) be in the Monterey Bay area on 21-June, I invite you to come diving (more...)
