Hey, I’m an Oracle ACE Director Now!

I’ve been just sending the abstracts for UKOUG 2009 Conference before the extended deadline is over and realized that I hadn’t spread those exciting news. Actually, the news spread via Twitter before I saw the official confirmation in my inbox. Well, I guess the blog post title says it all.

How to Dynamically Call PL/SQL Procedure in Oracle

Just got an interesting note on Twitter that you can’t call a stored procedure dynamically in Oracle from a PL/SQL block like passing the procedure name in a variable. Well, yes we can!

Alex Gorbachev — Interview on High Availability @ InSync09

Following my presentation at InSycn09 about Oracle E-Business Suite high availability, I gave an interview to a fellow Oracle tweeter here in Sydney and member of the team behind The Red Room blog — Gareth Llewellyn. I should say that my dedication to the interview was very strong and you will believe me if I tell you that during that time the party in the InSync09 exhibition hall was already in the full swing. Thanks to Gareth, the interview is now on Youtube and if you go there directly, you can watch in HD.
