Over 3 weeks the Oracle Database product teams presented hundreds of hours of free content for our customers in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and all of Asia. Sorry Antarctica, but maybe next time.

Bummed that you missed the opportunity to attend live? No worries!

All of those sessions PLUS an additional 70 titles are now available for you to watch at your leisure.

Something that differentiates this series is the time allotted per speaker: 30 minutes. That does two things:

  • forces us to get on with it, to the GOOD STUFF
  • allows you to consume more content

If I could get you to watch all 90 sessions, I’d click that button. So instead I thought I’d highlight a few. And since ‘Top 10 Lists’ win the internet…


1. Database Upgrade Best Practices

Warning: Mike’s Munich accent will have you craving brats and beers.

2. Futuristic SQL: Make Impossible, Possible

Connor’s presentations make me feel like a n00b. He’s the our Johnny Carson/Neil deGrasse Tyson.

3. Modern App Dev with Oracle REST Data Services

Disclaimer: Jiadong is on my team. See how REST APIs make coding Oracle apps w/Python a breeze.

4. Top 10 New SQL Features for Devs & DBAs

Keith is our SQL Optimizer PM and a bloody great presenter.

5. Self-Service Data Warehousing

Patrick shows you how to point and click your way to amazing insights into your data (powered by ORDS!)

6. Oracle Autonomous Database

Yasin’s responsible for most of what makes the database actually Autonomous. Great insights here.

7.Ransomware: a Database Survival Guide

You know what we don’t talk about enough? SECURITY.

8. Autonomous Data Warehouse & the Data Lake

Marty’s a great presenter and if you’re a movie fan, his session will be particularly interesting.

9. Kubernetes and Microservices with Oracle

Do you know how many patents Wei has? He has a separate office just to fit all of his plaques. Also, ORDS makes Microservices architecture for your apps on Oracle straightforward and easy via REST APIs.

10. Next-Gen, Data-Driven Application Development

Mike is the godfather for APEX, but also responsible for all of our drivers and development tools.

If you’re wondering why I didn’t highlight my own talk, it’s because I already did that, plus I work with a tone of talented people, and you’re missing out if you just watch my stuff.

I don’t want to be a passive learner. How can I get my hands dirty?

These sessions all have associated LiveLabs! Use our cloud to host the environment, then have an expert guide you through the tech, or do your thing at your own pace.

Back to the classroom!

I'm a Distinguished Product Manager at Oracle. My mission is to help you and your company be more efficient with our database tools.
