30 May, 1st Conference Day

Modern SQL: Evolution of a dinosaur by @Markus Winand

The conference will start with an eye-opening session about the revolution happened, which barely anyone noticed: SQL evolved beyond the relational dogma. Markus, SQL expert and book author, will show what modern SQL can do for you.

We are Serverless — Software and databases still functioning by @Piet de Visser

We are all going Serverless to a cloud-provider, which seems that simplifies our lives but doesn’t come without some challenges. At the session, Piet will talk about the tools (java, pl/sql, python, docker and lambdas), the data, the (oracle-) database, and the people and processes needed to control the new situation.

Container Orchestration for Oracle DBAs by @Martin Bach

Martin will give an introduction to kubernetes (k8s) for Oracle DBAs interested in learning more about micro-services and cloud native deployments.

How Well Do Relational Database Engines Support JSON? by @Christian Antognini

On this session, you’ll become aware of the good JSON support that RDBMS provide.

Oracle SQL Pattern Matching Made Easy by @Oren Nakdimon

The closing 1st-day session will be both entertaining and educating. Oren will explain the MATCH_RECOGNIZE feature (allows recognizing patterns in sequences of rows) from the basics, step-by-step, with many examples, and by that demonstrating how powerful and useful it is, and at the same time eliminating the fear from what may seem at first as complex syntax.

31 MAY, 2nd Conference Day

Microservices: Get Rid of Your DBA and Send the DB into Burnout by Franck Pachot

The 2nd day will open the session, which simply can be described as “databases vs. application”. Franck, DBA at CERN, will show a demo with CPU metrics, on how the co-location of code and data matters. Also he will give examples on Oracle with SQL, PL/SQL, Javascript on the client or in the server (Multi-Lingual engine).

5 Things Developers do that Drive Me Crazy by Øyvind Isene

Another title of the presentation is “What to do when you hate your DBA”. Developers and architects, you should visit this talk in order to make your project bearable. Tuning, data modeling, security, release handling are subjects of the presentation.

Effective PL/SQL Code Insight With PL/Scope — or yet another reason to put code in the database by @Vidar Eidissen

In this presentation, Vidar will show how he used Oracles free PL/Scope to analyze 1.000.000 lines code base to make informed and well-working design decisions.

Performance tricks learned from low-level developers by @Kamil Stawiarski

The last talk of the SQL track is not going to be related only to Oracle. It won’t be related to any database in fact. Come and see what performance tricks you can learn by analyzing Assembler code. Kamil suggests to open your mind to the old.

The nice end of the conference isn’t it? ;)

The Workshop

If you’d like to extend and deepen the knowledge have a look at the workshop “Low Code Application Development with Oracle APEX — Deep Dive” by Joel R Kallman

Intense, full of useful hands-on practices, 8 hours with professional who is working for Oracle since 1996 and takes a position of Senior Director of Software Development for Oracle’s Server Technologies.

Discussion Zones

Also during the breaks on the conference, you will be able to visit discussion zones to talk about debatable topics, argue about frameworks and solutions, chat with top industry experts.

On 18.03 we’ll open a poll, where you’ll be able to suggest which topics to raise on discussion zones. Make sure that you follow us on Telegram, Facebook or Twitter.
