A couple of weeks ago, RedHat announced the general availability of RHEL6… also effective on this release is the change on their certification offering. RHCT will now be replaced by RHCSA (Red Hat Certified System Administrator), and if you would like to be RHCE on RHEL6 regardless of your certification on RHEL5 you still have to go through the RHCSA exam.. and then once you pass.. you are then allowed to take RHCE exam for RHEL6. More details here: RHCSA, RHCE
And this time we have audio !!! (Wow!)
Following the huge success of my last hacking session, planned while drinking beer at Graham Woods OOW pre-party and delivered from Miracle’s massive Oracle Closed World event in Thirsty Bear (between drinking beers), I’m announcing another hacking session:
What: Using Session Snapper for flexible Oracle Performance Troubleshooting
When: Wednesday 27th Oct 9:00-10:00 AM PDT (US West coast / California time). Check what’s this in your time zone here
Where: Internet! -> Sign up here: http://tech.e2sn.com/secret
You’ll need to register fast and be “there” on time as my current GotoWebinar account only allow 100 attendees to log on… last time over 100 people signed up, but “luckily” less actually showed up, so nobody got left outside!
BTW, I have figured out what went wrong with audio last time and caused my voice in the end of presentation disappear). A program, which I accidentally launched via a keyboard shortcut, grabbed my Mic input to itself, so gotowebinar’s app couldn’t access it anymore.
See you soon!
Yes, it’s official. I’m organizing a virtual conference with some of THE top speakers in the world. The topic is Systematic Oracle SQL Optimization (in real world)
The dates are 18-19 November, the conference lasts for 4 hours on both days, so you’ll be able to still get some work done as well (and immediately apply the knowledge acquired!).
Well, none of the speakers need introduction, but just in case you’ve lived in space for last 20 years, here are the links to their blogs :)
I can tell you, (at least the first 3) people in the above list ROCK!!!
And all of them are OakTable members too :)
This conference will have 4 x 1.5 hour sessions, each delivered by a separate speaker. We aim to systematically cover the path of:
And as this is the first (pilot) virtual conference, then the price is awesome, especially if you get the early bird rate by signing up before 1. November!
So, check out the abstracts, details, agenda and sign up here!
P.S. I expect this event to be awesome!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I won’t be doing much flying anymore and so am changing all my seminar offering to online seminars.
So, I’ve changed and re-arranged my seminar content into self-contained 4-hour deep dives and thanks to the online nature (no travel needed), people can choose which days they want to attend. If you’re interested in latch contention only, you can attend the Latch Contention deep dive for example etc. Or you can still attend all the deep dives. The cool thing is that these deep dive sessions take only half a day, too (and are priced accordingly). That way you don’t have to skip work for the whole day (or week) and still can get some of your daily work done too. Hopefully it makes your life a bit easier when getting approval to attend the sessions.
As the main feedback from my seminars has been that “there’s too much to learn” within the short 2-3 days I used to do my seminars in, I have arranged the material so that there will be more time to go deep into the subject area. Also, I have planned plenty of time for questions & answers (1 hour out of the 4 hours is planned Q&A sessions and attendees can also ask questions any time during the lecture & demos).
It looks like I will only offer my Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting v2.0 class online this year. I will probably schedule my Advanced SQL Tuning deep dives in January/February 2011 and the Advanced Troubleshooting class again in March/April and so on (until I go public with my other business, when I won’t have time for full length training anymore).
You can check the current schedule and pricing out here:
Here’s a brief outline of individual half-day Deep Dives I offer:
So, sign up now, seats are limited ;-)
Just to let you know where I’ll be in the near future :)
I have rearranged and adjusted the material so it flows smoother, has even more practical tools and scripts and describes some internals even deeper ;-)
These dates are close, last chance to register ;-) Note that after these I won’t be doing an Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting class in US for a while…
I will deliver 2 presentations at the Hotsos Symposium 2010
Also, I will be the Training Day speaker after the conference (I feel quite honored about this btw ;)
Note that I will show some very cool (and of course, useful) stuff at the Training Day! Some things are gonna be so cool that I almost want to sit in the audience myself! One of the things is called MOATS – the Mother Of All Tuning Scripts for example ;-)
When I first saw that Tanel will conduct his seminar in Singapore, I told myself that I would even spend my own money just to be on that training! I’ve already read performance books like Optimizing Oracle Performance, Oracle 8i Internal Services, Forecasting Oracle Performance… And after that I still want more, and I still have questions that need to be answered. Well, if you’re on a tight budget you just opt to download some more docs/books to do multiple reads coupled with research/test cases and also reading through others blog…
But thanks to my boss for the funding, I was there!
The seminar has 8 chapters,
