Conferences 2017

Last year I’ve been to a few conferences. At some point I thought I need to record some of the sessions to let more people see them as well.
So I took a cheap action camera & recorded several presentations. Video quality is not good (mostly) due to lighting but still is enough to get an idea of how was it back there in a room.
Here’re links to the videos. Enjoy!

Hatem Mahmoud – Memory Access Tracing/Profiling

Jonathan Lewis – Just Don’t Do It

Panel Discussion at POUG2017

Marcin Przepiorowski – dNFS for DBAs

Neil Chandler – Why Has My Plan Changed

12c Release 2 – Transparent Data Encryption online !

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that even if you have incredibly stringent controls on user authentication, user authorisation etc, that wont save you if your data on disk is not encrypted.  All you need is an errant tape, a missing disk, a misplaced flash stick…and kersplat, someone has a copy of your datafiles from your Oracle database.

Data at rest should be encrypted, but that often meant taking applications offline to do so.

I’ve put my Speed Racer hat on Smile and here’s a video on a new 12c Release 2 feature covered in 60 seconds !

TimTams, Twelve Two, and tete-a-tete !

What do you do when

  • you’re an Australian,
  • you’re at Oracle Headquarters, 13,000 kms from home
  • you bump into someone whilst grabbing a coffee

Well…naturally, you lure them over with a packet of our famous Australian chocolate biscuits, grab a camera and have a chat !

Maria Colgan and I chew the fat over why you should upgrade to Oracle Database 12c (including Release 2)

Video : SQL/XML (SQLX) : Generating XML using SQL in Oracle

Another video fresh off the press.

If videos aren’t your thing, you can always read the article the video is based on.

The star of this video is Kevin Closson. Kevin’s a really nice guy and has a brain the size of a planet, but you know somewhere in the back of his mind he’s wondering what it would be like to hunt you down, kill you and mount your head above his fireplace. </p />
