Oracle Midlands : Event #14 – Summary

Last night was Oracle Midlands Even #14 with Lothar Flatz.

The session started with “Raiders of the Data Dictionary I: Indexing for the Workload” where Lothar discussed a project he worked on based around completely revamping the indexing of a system. I guess the best way I can describe it is to say it’s a more scientific approach to indexing, using the contents of the dictionary to provide information about columns and column groups used in queries to determine the indexes to create. In some ways the approach was quite extreme (throw everything away and start again), but I also admire the bravery of that approach!

Oracle Midlands : Event #12

Just a quick reminder, Oracle Midlands Event #12 is just around the corner.

Update: The first talk is now “Why use PL/SQL?” by Bryn Llewellyn.

This is the day after I get back from India, right after my first day back at work. It’s going to be really hard to drag myself there, but I know it will be worth it!

Cheers

Oracle Midlands : Event #11 – Summary

oracle-midlandsLast night was Oracle Midlands event #11 with Chris Antognini.

The lead up to this event was not the best for me. I had been on the verge of a headache all day. By 14:00 I gave up, went home and went to sleep for a couple of hours. It wasn’t great, but it was just enough to take the edge off, so when the time came, I felt sort-of OK to head out for the event. The drive started to convince me this wasn’t the best move, but once I got to the event and sat down I figured I was going to make it. :)

Chris did two talks at the event.

Oracle Midlands : Event #10 Summary

oracle-midlands Last night was Oracle Midlands Event #10 with Jonathan Lewis.

The first session was on “Five Hints for Optimizing SQL”. The emphasis was very much on “shaping the query plan” to help the optimizer make the right decisions, not trying to determine every single join and access structure etc.

Just a quick heads-up about the next Oracle Midlands event. It’s good to encourage new speakers, so Mike is giving this new, unknown kid a shot at the limelight. I hope you will all come along to show your support.
