RMOUG Training Days February 12 (day 2)
Second day is over now. I attended several interesting sessions. The one I liked the most was about the role of women in technology. I am so glad RMOUG provides now this kind of session! I think we need to encourage women to fill positions that are still dominated by men, like speaking at conferences. If you consider that 40% of DBAs are women while only 11% are speakers, you get to understand something can be improved here…
Today, I will deliver two one-hour sessions:
- How to improve SQL Performance with new SQL Health Check Tool. Wednesday, February 13 at 8:30 am. Room 4a.
- How to create in 5 minutes a SQL Tuning Test Case using SQLTXPLAIN. Wednesday, February 13 at 1:30 pm. Room 403.
I am so happy to participate as a speaker at the RMOUG! My reward is simple: to see participants nodding and smiling when a concept clicks in, or when they get an answer to a question that has been boiling in their heads for some time. After 17 years at Oracle and having learned from so many smart guys, I am lucky to be in a position where I can answer many questions. Still I say “I do not know” when asked something I do not know, but when it comes to SQL Tuning, I feel pretty comfortable with most subtopics. I notice a great interest on Plan Stability and SQL Plan Management in particular. I will be offering sessions in this area within SQL Tuning…
Looking forward to a great third and last day of this event today!
