It’s that time again. Collaborate 2015 is fast approaching and, I have to say, I’m pretty damn psyched! This is the first time my personal company, NEXTGRES, will be demonstrating its game-changing database compatibility features to Oracle DBAs, developers, and users. I’d love for anyone reading my blog to drop by, whether it’s just to say “hi” or to see what we’ve been up to; We’re on Main Street at Booth 956. Also, thanks to friend and Oracle performance colleague, Craig Shallahamer, I’ll be presenting a completely revamped version of my Life of an Oracle Query session, Visualizing Oracle Query Execution. That’s right, I’ve come up with a good way to visualize the entire execution of a query in real-time as it flows from the client, to the server, through each component of the server, and is returned back to the client. I look forward to seeing you there!
