Here a small advert for one of my events scheduled for this year. On the 24th of Februari I will be giving a Masterclass regarding Oracle XMLDB in Germany. To be precise in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The following will be addressed, but might you attend, then drop me a line (marco dot gralike at amis dot nl) regarding your specific topics and I will see if I can address it within the bounderies of the course setup):
- Provide a holistic view of Oracle’s XML Database features
- Provide an in-depth view on how XML should be handled in general and in the Oracle XML database
- Provide realistic solutions, architectures, to make an XML environment work
- Show how to avoid problems while working in an XML environment
- Help to gain the optimum in performance and functionality from your XML database environment
The course is helpful for people who want to know more about Oracle XML DB and have some experience working with it, architects, dba or developers alike. I will see how good my German is during the day and if I feel very brave enough, switch to German during the course.

Lucas already gave a very good in depth overview of the "Hotsos Revisited" session last night. It always amazes me how fast he can make a cool blog post that accurately points out the impressions we had of the evening. It started off with an idea we (Jeroen, Toon, Gerwin and me) had of sharing some of the ideas, atmosphere and presentation info we got from the Hotsos Symposium this year. It is not an easy task to present the presenters accordingly trying to achieve some of the energy that shared during their presentations at Hotsos, also, of course, we were not that deep into the material they presented / as the people we tried to do credit to.
I am indebted to Jeroen, Gerwin and Toon for making the time (their precious spare family time) too make it all happen. Even if it has to be all fun, you, as a presenter, don’t want to let the attendees, the audience, down by leaving them with the impression that such an evening was lost time. So it still takes a lot off effort to make it all work.
The 8th of March 2009â€¦The Oracle Performance Symposium in Irving, Texas, also known as the Hotsos Symposium was about to startâ€¦ Four Dutch guys had the luck to attend this year: Jeroen Evers (Fameus), Toon Koppelaars (RuleGen), Gerwin Hendriksen (AMIS) en Marco Gralike (AMIS).
We wanted to share some of our Hotsos experiences, thoughts about, or revive some of the presentations we have seen this year. That’s how the idea for this AMIS Query started; Let’s share some of the lessons learned; Pass on some of the knowledge. We hope we can do justice regarding the topics we have seen and enjoyed during Hotsos.
An advert for myself. Wow! How cool is that…
The local Oracle User Group Holland starts on the 16th of April with a new series of presentations given this time by the Dutch Oracle ACE’s and Oracle ACE Directors under the compelling name "Oracle ACE Cases". They asked me to do the kick-off of the series… A whole evening with just me and "my" Oracle XMLDB. I felt honored, so I said yes, but was also surprised…
I still notice that "people" have problems regarding the "specialism" Oracle XMLDB. Is it development, dba stuff, an architecture, an appliance…? I was very proud to be able to present in 2007, for the first time, on a big symposium called UKOUG, although under the label "Fusion Technology". In 2008 I had the pleasure to be on the 25th anniversary of the UKOUG, this time I had to "compete" (if you make an attempt, why not grasp for the stars ) in the same time slot with a Mr. Tom Kyte and a Mr. Jonathan Lewis and this time my XMLDB topic was relabeled as "Server Technology".
So the name of the game is changing and being a DBA, I think this correct for core functionality as Oracle XMLDB currently is, at least since the Oracle 11g database release. I also like More >
