Riyaj’s Presentations at SIOUG and DOUG

Posted in: Technical Track

I recently traveled to Europe to present at a few conferences. The Slovenia Oracle User Group (SIOUG) conducted an Oracle conference in Portoroz, a port city in Adriatic Sea.

Thanks to my friend Joze Senegacnik, I had wonderful time in Slovenia. We also visited the city of Venice while we were there. Of course, we all knew that Venice is the city of bridges—over a hundred small islands connected by bridges. But visiting Venice in person had a dramatic effect on us. We were mesmerized by the beauty, culture, and architecture, in particular the Basilica of St.Mark. Venice is indeed the Queen of the Adriatic.

Back to reality. I presented a few papers for the Dallas Oracle Users Group (DOUG) for their October tech meeting too. All these papers can be accessed following these links:

1. Performance specific new features in 11g

2. Battle of the nodes: RAC Performance myths

3. Cost Based Query Transformations

4. Performance tuning: Scientific approach to bottleneck identification

Also, if you are planning to attend the UKOUG Conference & Exhibition in December, please attend my presentation on “Cost based query transformation” on Thursday of that week.

It was a great privilege for me and Lili to host you in our house. I’m so happy that you found many interesting places in the vicinity of SIOUG.

Don’t envy, some next year again to Slovenia for SIOUG or any other time. You are welcome to stay in my house!
