Oracle SQL Developer Reporting 101

150 of my closest friends, or some random people on the Internet, joined me today while we talked all about SQL Developer’s reporting feature. Did you miss it? If so, I’m guessing you’re not a member of ODTUG. They put on free webcasts for everyone in the Oracle technology space. If you’re a member, you […]

SQL Developer Q&A from ODTUG Tips & Tricks Webcast

Another great webcast yesterday – if you’re a paying member of ODTUG you can watch the show for yourself in their archives. If not, you can get my slide deck off of SlideShare. About 150 of you brave souls sat through an entire hour of me talking and then 10 more minutes of Q&A. We […]

What’s New in Oracle SQL Developer v4.0 Webcast

You may have noticed a few posts lately where I’m talking about new and improved features in SQL Developer version 4.0. You may have also been too busy to read all of them. For shame! But that’s OK. I’ll be doing a webcast with ODTUG on Tuesday, August 20 at NOON Eastern Time. When I’m […]

A Sneak Peek: Oracle SQL Developer Version 4.0

In a few weeks I’ll be speaking at the Database Symposium at the ODTUG KScope13 conference. My topic, ‘SQL Developer v4.0′ will be one of the first times I spend an entire hour showing off our new features in the upcoming release.

Oracle Developers Should Go to ODTUG’s KScope

I promised @oraclenerd that I’d make a video talking about why I thought KScope was a ‘must-attend’ event for all Oracle developers, but my web cam is acting up. In the meantime, here’s a quick plug for my favorite independent Oracle conference! Full Disclaimer: I’m speaking at KScope. When I talk about how awesome the […]

Thoughts on ODTUG Kscope12

This wasn’t my first rodeo, and it wasn’t my first Kscope, but it was probably my favorite one. What is Kscope? It’s the annual conference for the Oracle Development Tools User Group. 1,000+ attendees from 20+ countries with an average Jeff Klout score of 65. I just made that metric and score up, but this […]

SQL Developer Blitz at ODTUG Kscope12

Oracle Development Tools User Group (ODTUG) puts on an outstanding event, and I enjoy that the content comes FIRST. Yes, the after-event parties and entertainment are first class, but I look forward most to sitting in on some excellent sessions. For Kscope12 one would expect Oracle to have a large presence, and you would be […]

There will be one dedicated to tools (link), and I’ve been asked to present Toad and how it helps with instrumenting your PL/SQL code. – ODTUG KScope11 June 26-30 (Details) – One of the […]

Tradeshows, How Not To Do It

Tradeshows, user groups, conferences, seminars are all used by vendors to meet with customers and hopefully increase the chance of a sale in the near future. I have been working these types of events since 1999. In that time, I have never seen a vendor resort to playing a feature length movie on the big […]
