Back to Basics: Database Administration – Agenda now live!

After the fun of the blog-tag posts (or at least some of us thought it was fun), it’s now time for something on-topic.

The Agenda for the UKOUG ‘Back to Basics’ Special Event is now Live and can be found here.

Since my original post the venue has been changed in order to accommodate more delegates.

The event will still take place on 28th February, but it will now be held at the Odeon Whiteleys in London.
However, due to popular demand, places are still limited and selling out fast, so register quickly if you want to attend.
You can register from this link.

The agenda for this special launch event will not disappoint, with a line up of some of the best internationally renowned Oracle experts, sharing their knowledge for a beginners audience.

Tom Kyte, Database Product Evangelist, Oracle, will present
"Best Practices: Just say no"
Pete Finnigan , PeteFinnigan.com Ltd, will present
"Oracle Security Basics"
Jonathan Lewis, JL Computer Consultancy, will present
"The Beginners’ Guide to Cost Based Optimisation"
Julian Dyke, JULIANDYKE.com, will present
"Back to Basics: High Availability and Real Application Clusters"

As you can see, there really will be some fantastic speakers on the day, speakers that are highly respected for their expert level knowledge and can often be seen giving talks at many of the big international events and Conferences.

The UKOUG has been able to bring them together for this event so that they can share their knowledge and actively encourage the ‘Newbies’ out there.

One thing I really want to stress here is that this is a Beginner’s event.

The material being presented has been specifically written with the target audience in mind and is very much aimed at those new to the realms of an Oracle DBA.
The target audience for this event is DBA’s who have been in the role a short time and are looking to enhance the basic skills and understanding that they currently have.

The UKOUG runs many events and Special Interest Groups throughout the year and full details are available on their website.
Please take time to think carefully as to whether the Back to Basics event is for you, or whether you could take advantage of the many other events on offer.

For those of you that have followed this blog, you will know that putting something back into the Oracle community and providing resources to beginners is something that I feel very strongly about.

As such, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Tom Kyte, Pete Finnigan, Jonathan Lewis, Julian Dyke and the UKOUG for the time and effort they have put into this event.
