12 and 13 December 2013 AMIS will host a two day masterclas with Oracle PL/SQL guru Steven Feuerstein.
The Design Pattern movement reminds us that most of the code we write is similar to something written last week – or maybe even an hour ago. Once you identify a common code pattern you can then create a (or use an already-existing) design pattern as a template for how to solve a problem that can be used in many different situations. Design patterns generally reflect and encourage best practices. An anti-pattern, on the other hand, is a pattern that is commonly found in our code, but reflects bad practices, leading to code with bugs, performance problems or maintenance headaches.
In this two day class, Steven Feuerstein presents a series of common PL/SQL anti-patterns (classic bad-practice programming). Students, working alone or in pairs on their laptops, are then invited to fix the “anti” in the code. Steven will then explain what makes the code “anti”, review selected solutions from students, and present key lessons about applying PL/SQL features to solve similar problems.
In addition to the work on anti-patterns, students will also learn about the most important new PL/SQL features in Oracle Database 12c.
