    2017 CodeTalk Series: The PL/SQL Ninja: PL/SQL Can Do WHAT? 
    February 16, 2017, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CT

    How do we make PL/SQL as easy and fun to develop in as Node/Ruby/Python/[flavor of the day]? What are the things that make a language “cool” to build stuff in? Apart from being hip or used by Facebook/Google/Apple, what is the core functionality that should be available in any language and what are the core parts of the ecosystem around a language that makes it easier to pick up and start building? Looking at PL/SQL, what are the must-know packages that will get you started doing fun, useful libraries or applications? 

    In this CodeTalk session, Steven Feuerstein interviews Morten Egan, aka the PL/SQL Ninja, who has been asking himself – and then answering via code – these very questions. We’ll take a look at some of the utilities and libraries he has built for and to see what is possible and discover the sources of Morten’s inspiration and creativity. And time permitting, he’ll demonstrate with some “live” coding as well! 

    Featured Speakers:

    How to Tell If There Is an OS Memory Shortage
    March 7, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    An operating system memory shortage can cause very strange and intense performance situations. In this webinar, we will explore different ways to tell if there is a memory shortage and how this affects Oracle processes. Using a simple shell script, Craig is moving towards slowing increase memory usage.

    Then, we will watch what is happening using the vmstat, iostat and sar commands. And of course, we will also be monitoring the active Oracle sessions, key SQL statement elapsed times and key throughput metrics. As you will see, a memory bottleneck (rather, memory pressure) can cause some really strange performance behavior.

    The Database Cloud Appliance: The Next Generation Appliance for Oracle Databases
    March 9, 2017, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT

    Vendita has developed a product known as the Database Cloud Appliance (DCA), an easy to deploy alternative to Oracle Engineered Systems. In this education focused presentation, key hardware and storage concepts critical to database servers are presented and explored in a way that makes sense to DBAs. This paves the way for attendees to learn about the capabilities of the DCA. The presentation makes a strong case for the DCA as an alternative to other systems of delivery for Oracle Database. This presentation also explores cloud concepts and the cloud capabilities that are made possible by the DCA.

    Learning Outcomes:

    1. Hardware and OS concepts that DBAs must know.
    2. Basic cloud concepts and paradigms and which are prevalent (per Forrester Research) for Oracle database servers.
    3. Logical Partitions (LPARs) vs. Bare Metal Servers, and how LPARS make cloud possible.
    4. How Oracle licensing costs can be drastically reduced, with budget impact.

    Featured Speaker:

    • William (Bill) Smith, Vendita Technology Chief Architect
