I won’t spend too much time explaining what SQLBits is, however in a nutshell it “is the largest SQL Server conference in Europe and the previous six conferences have established it as a must-attend event for DBAs, developers and BI professionals who work with Microsoft SQL Server in the UK and Europe.” The next event, SQLBits 7, will be held in York at the end of September 2010 and selection for the community delivered training sessions has now finished.
The good news is my session has been selected! I shall be “introducing some key concepts and product features of the Oracle database world in an attempt to give nervous SQL Server DBAs the courage to at least have a go and store “Hello world” when they get back home. The presentation will cover the following areas: Why use Oracle, Installation, Platform support, Database and schema namespaces, DBA tools, Storage methods, Backup and recovery, Programmability features, High availability including clustering.”

As a result of this my recent blog series on Oracle will be paused at part 1, that way I can put a level of depth behind my material in preparation for SQLBits beyond which I’d normally put into a blog article.
But don’t panic, I have two non-technical articles almost ready to publish!
Catch you soon!
