Back At Oracle Corporation (The Return Of The Thin White Duke) November 30, 2011

Posted by Richard Foote in Richard's Musings.

I’ve been very quiet on the blogging front lately, so apologies for that.

One of the main reasons is that after a period of nearly 10 years, I’ve decided to take up a position back at Oracle Corporation as a “Principal Solutions Consultant” in sunny Canberra. So things have been rather hectic, finishing up in my previous job and starting up afresh at Oracle. Things have certainly changed a lot over this time, with new offices and a much larger workforce than worked in Canberra previously. Some things haven’t changed such as I’ve still got my old email address and the same employee number (2020) as before. I’ve got that feeling of being really excited again at work which I’ve missed recently so I’m really looking forward to my many new adventures to come at Oracle.

The good news is that I’ve been given the green light to continue on with my blogging activities so expect action on that front here again soon. I’ll still be keeping it technical (unless there’s a new David Bowie album or Pink Floyd Box-set to discuss of course) and I’ll still be talking mainly about indexes as there’s heaps that I’ll still like to cover such as Secondary Indexes on IOTs as promised previously, as well as looking at more “exotic” indexes such as those for Spatial, XML, Oracle Text etc. There are also a few “rumours” regarding not needing indexes with Exadata which might potentially become full-blown myths if I don’t do something about it 🙂

I’ll also get back to answering the various questions that have been building up over the past few weeks.

So stay tuned !!
