UKOUG Event - Back to Basics: Database Administration
It has long been noted that there have been plenty of expert sessions and advanced technical events, but relatively little aimed at the Oracle beginners out there.
After many discussions between myself, the UKOUG and my peers, we now have the ‘Back to Basics’ concept up and running, beginning with the Database Administration event.
‘Back to Basics: Database Administration’ will take place on February 28th, 2008 at Oracle’s City Office in London.
This event is aimed at Oracle DBA’s who are fairly new to the role and are looking to fill the gaps in their existing knowledge.
Maybe you’ve moved into a DBA role from a previous role as a developer or programmer and are looking for that bit of knowledge that’s missing.
The day will aim to provide hints and tips, ‘How to’ advice and point out things that you should be doing. There’ll also be a session on the best ways to get help and how to take your learning forward.
Please note though that this should not be considered a training course in how to learn Oracle.
There is a lot of support for this event from popular speakers so this is an opportunity for beginners to learn from the experts.
As a taster, we have confirmation that Pete Finnigan will be presenting a beginners guide to Oracle Security!
A draft Agenda is in place, in terms of the topics we will be covering, however as it is not yet confirmed there is an opportunity for you to have some say in what you would like to see.
The UKOUG have published an online survey here to give you the chance to provide some direction in what you would like to see covered. It’s also an opportunity for us to gauge the number of people who would be interested in attending.
If you, or any of your colleagues would be interested in the Back to Basics day then please take just a few minutes to fill in the survey.
I hope that all the Newbies out there are as pleased to hear this as I am, and I will hopefully see many of you there!
