New Oracle ACE at Pythian

I recently nominated my colleague and good friend Christo Kutrovsky for the Oracle ACE program. Today, I’m excited to share that he has been accepted and is now part of the community of 200+ Oracle ACEs and Oracle ACE Directors.

Where’s Everyone Gone?

Now that our new web-site is live I’d like to do the first blog post on it!

You shouldn’t be surprised if you notice that it’s difficult to locate your DBAs in the first week of December (i.e. in just two weeks from now)! And you know why? Because you need to be looking in the right place to find them.

UKOUG Conference Tech & EBS 2009 — The Place to Be!

Yes, it’s almost that time of the year when one of the best Oracle conferences in the world opens its doors to attendees in Birmingham — UKOUG Conference 2009: Technology & E-Business Suite.

Before I get to the schedule, if you want to catch up with me during OOW — tweet me @alexgorbachev. You are likely to see me in the OTN Lounge or in “The Cave” if you know what I’m talking about. Here is a quick summary of my presentations.

Oracle Database Machine on a Budget: Standard Edition (SE)?
