Announcement

Old ventures and new adventures

I have some news, two items actually.

First, today (it’s still 18th June in California) is my blog’s 8th anniversary!

I wrote my first blog post, about Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting, exactly 8 years ago, on 18th June 2007 and have written 229 blog posts since. I had started writing and accumulating my TPT script collection a couple of years earlier and now it has over 1000 files in it! And no, I don’t remember what all of them do and even why I had written them. Also I haven’t yet created an index/documentation for all of them (maybe on the 10th anniversary? ;)

Thanks everyone for your support, reading, commenting and the ideas we’ve exchanged over all these years, it’s been awesome to learn something new every single day!

Enkitec + Accenture = Even More Awesomeness!

Enkitec is the best consulting firm for hands on implementation, running and troubleshooting your Oracle based systems, especially the engineered systems like Exadata. We have a truly awesome group of people here; many are the best in their field (just look at the list!!!).

This is why I am here.

This is also why Accenture approached us some time ago – and you may already have seen today’s announcement that Enkitec got bought!

Hotsos Symposium 2014

After missing last year’s Hotsos Symposium (trying to cut my travel as you know :), I will present at and deliver the full-day Training Day at this year’s Hotsos Symposium! It will be my 10th time to attend (and speak at) this awesome conference. So I guess this means more beer than usual. Or maybe less, as I’m getting old. Let’s make it as usual, then :0)

Enkitec Rocks Again!!!

Yes, the title of this post is also a reference to the Machete Kills Again (…in Space) movie that I’m sure going to check out once it’s out ;-)

I will be speaking at Oracle OpenWorld and Strata + HadoopWorld NY

I will be speaking at a few more conferences this year and thought to add some comments about my plans here too. Here’s the list of my upcoming presentations:

Oracle Performance & Troubleshooting Online Seminars in 2013

In case you haven’t noticed, I will be delivering my Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting and Advanced Oracle Exadata Performance: Troubleshooting and Optimization classes again in Oct/Nov 2013 (AOT) and December 2013 (Exadata).

I have streteched the Exadata class to 5-half days as 4 half-days wasn’t nearly enough to deliver the amount of details in the material (and I think it’s still going to be a pretty intensive pace).

And that’s all for this year (I will write about conferences and other public appearances in a separate post).

 

Enkitec is a finalist for the UKOUG Engineered Systems Partner of the Year Award

Enkitec has made it to the shortlist of UKOUG Partner of the Year Awards, in the Engineered Systems category. So if you like what we have done in the Exadata and Engineered Systems space, please cast your vote! :-)

Thanks!!!
