Jeremiah Wilton has worked with Oracle technology since 1993. His main claim to fame is having been Amazon.com’s first database administrator. From the mod '90s, he helped Amazon.com survive exponential scaling, and a wide variety of nearly-catastrophic technology failures. Jeremiah owned and ran ORA-600 Consulting for a number of years, until it was acquired by Blue Gecko, Inc., a company founded and run by some of his former Amazon colleagues. Jeremiah currently works for Pythian, a remote database administration and consulting provider. He also teaches the Oracle certificate program for the University of Washington. Jeremiah is an Oracle Certified Master, a member of the Oak Table, and a frequent presenter at industry conferences and user groups.
