About the Author

I am in love with Oracle blogging since 2007. The blogging coupled with extensive participation in Oracle forums, plus Oracle related speaking engagements, various Oracle certifications, teaching, and working in the trenches with Oracle technologies enabled me to get Oracle ACE award. I was the first ever Pakistani to get that award. From Oracle Open World SF to Foresight 20:20 Perth, I have been expressing my love for Exadata. These days for the last some years, I am loving the data at Pythian, and proudly writing their log buffer carnivals.
