A quick thank you…

Just a quick note to say thank you to everyone involved in making the 2-day PL/SQL workshop in Utrecht happen last week. Thanks to Miracle Benelux for staging the event, to Anjo for inviting me and to Annette for organizing everything, including Anjo. Of course the biggest thanks go to everyone who came to the [...]

Slovakia Day 2

I’m not nervous about flying, but I am nervous about being late for flights, so day 2 was a complex day for me. The plan was to teach from 9:00-17:00 then go straight to the airport and leave. Having the deadline for the airport in the back of my mind all day meant I was [...]




Slovakia Day 1…

That’s day 1 over as far as teaching is concerned. The audience is quite a diverse mix. Everything from 6 months to 10+ years of Oracle experience and from variety of countries too. I’ve even got a member of Oracle staff in the group. I wonder if he’s a spy… It’s always dangerous to start [...]




Slovakia Day -1

I got to Slovakia with no major trauma.  I also had enough time to have a quick look round. There are some photos here if you are interested. As always, I used the shotgun approach. Several shots of each scene in the hope something would come out looking OK. Not sure if I’ll have time [...]




FTP from PL/SQL: An Update…

I’ve put a new version of my PL/SQL FTP API (ftp.pks, ftp.pkb) live today. The changes are also reflected in the associated article. Over the years a number of people have contributed suggestions and actual code for it. Where possible their names are reflected in the amendment history. Cheers Tim…




OCA PL/SQL Developer and stuff…

Today has been a bit of a rare day… I hurt my back last night at Karate. I managed to get in on a cancellation at my osteopath, so off I went this morning to get everything straightened out. I left the osteopath just in time to get to the Prometric test center down the [...]




Estonia Day 1 Update…

I’ve just completed day 1 of my PL/SQL workshop in Estonia. The first few minutes proved especially eventful! When I did my workshop in Copenhagen, I had a lot of trouble with the projector. This morning I plugged the projector into my laptop and all was well. I even made a joke about how well [...]




PL/SQL Seminar in Estonia…

I’ll be in Estonia on the 3rd & 4th of June doing a PL/SQL seminar. I’m guessing the details will be available here in the next day or two. Cheers Tim… PS. If I get any more dates I’m printing a “World Tour” T shirt.




PL/SQL updates in Oracle 11g

On the surface, the changes to PL/SQL look rather minor, but there is some seriously cool stuff in there. I originally intended to write a single article, but some sections got too big so I thought it was worth sectioning them out into separate articles. PL/SQL New Features and Enhancements in Oracle Database 11g Release [...]
