Pythian’s friendly Oracle e-Business Suite DBAs would like to congratulate all of our friends, clients, Pythian colleagues, prospects, new team members whom we haven’t yet met (join us!), all database geeks, and blog readers for successfully completing 2012! Have a very peaceful Christmas and the happiest year ever in 2013! May all of your pagers be quiet, and your year-end maintenance be incident-free! ;) Here comes our Christmas card to you :)
RACing up the Miles … please enjoy this copy of the recent presentation I gave at the UKOUG 2012 conference in Birmingham England. Feedback and comments always welcome …
The mix of presentations at the UKOUG this year offers a plethora of education for a variety of attendees’ areas of concentration and I, being primarily a CORE database person, will easily find food for thought for sessions to attend when not tied up elsewhere.
If you’re like me and are a DBA in the UK with a penchant for MySQL or Oracle, you’ll know we have a smörgåsbord of conferences here next week. We’ve been waiting, and like buses two have come at once. We have the UK Oracle User Group Conference 2012, in Birmingham on 3rd – 5th December 2012, and the Percona Live London MySQL Conference running on 3rd – 4th December. Pythian will be speaking at both events.
Movember is getting to and end… and what a ball we had at Pythian this month! The laughs, pictures and performances will stay in our memories for a long time, and on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc…
I have just received notification of my acceptance into the Oracle ACE program and will enthusiastically support and continue to be an evangelist for the Oracle offerings though most of my heart lies in the same place as many current and previous personnel at this fine company – the CORE database technology.
This post is the first in a series of discussions … perhaps you have never had the pleasure of needing to change a character set. If you have not and soon do, purchase a good sleeping bag as you may be at the office late for a few days to get the task accomplished.
Perth is far from everywhere, but not far from the Oracle technologies. Passion, knowledge, and urge to share the experience, skills, tips and knowledge brought people from across the planet to gather under one roof and learn, educate and network under the banner of Oracle with 20:20 Foresight.
I always followed all Oracle OpenWorld happenings through blogs, but this is the first OpenWorld that I physically attended. The blog post from Michael Abbey on tips for OOW first timers was a godsend for me. This helped me to navigate OOW like a pro. This is what I checked out..
I’ll be blogging about reliability more in the coming days and weeks, but I’m going to quickly get warmed up with this post, pointing out two worthy reads in the domain of reliability.
