Helen Sanders, Database Track Lead for ODTUG Kscope19, shares her top 3 Database Track Sessions at Kscope19. "Finally, here are my top three. It’s so hard to pick, really." Helen says.
"With all the amazing content coming to the database track during ODTUG Kscope19, it is EXTREMELY difficult to pick three favorites! We have a roster of top-notch speakers and experts willing to share their knowledge—they are really all my favorites!"
To me, every database session is “not to be missed,” but here are three in particular that I hope I’ll see you at in Seattle (and be sure to seek me out and say “hi” if you are there!):
An Insider’s Guide to Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing – Maria Colgan, Oracle Corporation
Maria is a dynamic speaker with a gift for breaking down topics into clear, easily understandable bits that appeal to beginners as well as database experts! If you’re looking to learn about this “hot” topic, be sure to stop by this session. You’re sure to come away knowing all you’ll need to know about Autonomous Transaction Processing Cloud Service.
Regular Expressions: Say What? - Alex Nuijten, allAPEX
Regular Expressions are a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I presented on them myself back in San Antonio at ODTUG Kscope17 with Justin Beard’s help.
Regular Expressions look so daunting to someone not familiar with them, but they are incredibly useful! ACE Director Alex will talk about some of the cool things you can do with regular expressions, such as redacting data and recognizing patterns in your data.
Avoid "Horror Queries": Keep Your SQL Simple and Fast - Dani Schnider, Trivadis AG
Who among us doesn’t have a runaway query nightmare story to share? Oracle ACE Dani Schnider will show examples of bad-code-gone-good from real-life stories and give you SQL tuning tips as a takeaway.
