I am a Software Developer and Oracle DBA by trade, but have worked with many RDBMS systems ranging from small DBaseIV / FoxPro PC databases, medium sized MySQL databases, and large Sybase, Oracle, and MS SQL Server databases.
I hope you can find some useful information here. I have been collecting posts and notes since July 2007. The information presented in Blog Posts and Notebook Pages is a wide ranging collection of hints, tips, tricks, and caveats. If you are not a regular reader then hopefully you land here from a Google search and take something away that helps you solve a problem.
Feel free to hook up to the RSS feed for updates to the site as content is added.
I also try to stay active in the dba/development community as a whole. My favorite resources are:
- Stack Overflow / (Profile)
- Database Administrators StackExchange / (Profile)
- Oracle-L Mailing List
- Oracle Forums
