DBD::Oracle 1.23 Released

DBD::Oracle (1.23) has been released. DBD::Oracle is the Perl module that works with the DBI module to provide access to Oracle databases. It is maintained by me, John Scoles, under the auspices of The Pythian Group as open source/free software. This release is largely a maintenance release that fixes a number of bugs.

Thanks to Gareth, the interview is now on Youtube and if you go there directly, you can watch in HD.

InSync09, AIA, Oracle-Sun Deal and MySQL

I enjoyed InSync09 conference and the networking opportunities there — great place to meet bunch of good old friends and make some new ones. The content of the presentations and direction where Oracle is going to provided some interesting food for thoughts on Oracle’s strategy and how it’s going to make money with all those acquisitions they’ve done recently including current Oracle-Sun deal.
