Connect 2019


AUSOUG will again be running their excellent CONNECT 2019 conference series this year at the following great venues:

  • Monday 14th October – Rendezvous Hotel In Melbourne
  • Wednesday 16th October –  Mercure Hotel in Perth

As usual, there’s a wonderful lineup of speakers from both Australia and overseas including:

  • Connor McDonald
  • Scott Wesley
  • Guy Harrison
  • Jeffrey Kemp
  • Francisco Munoz Alvarez
  • Gavin Soorma
  • Douglas Hood
  • Charles Kim
  • Craig Shallahamer
  • David Peake
  • Patrick Barel
  • Christopher Jones

to name but a few. You can see the full list of speakers here.

I’ll will also be presenting my fully updated and revised “10 Things You Might Not Know About Oracle Indexes But Really Should” presentation, that covers the more important and recent indexing capabilities that are not so widely known or understood but can be critical for optimal database/application performance.

If you’re an Oracle professional based in Australia, this is definitely the Oracle conference for you. Hopefully, I’ll get to meet many of you at either Melbourne or Perth 🙂

AUSOUG “Oracle Master” Award November 22, 2018

Posted by Richard Foote in AUSOUG, Oracle Indexes, Oracle Master.



I was very flattered and honoured to be named one of the first 4 “Oracle Masters” by the Australian Oracle User Group at the recent AUSOUG Connect 2018 conference in Melbourne.

Thank you to all the AUSOUG members involved for this award. As always, it’s a pleasure to help fellow Oracle Database professionals in Australia in whatever capacity I can, especially at cool events such as Connect 2018.

Congratulations to the other members of the “Famous First Four”, Connor McDonald, Penny Cookson and Dennis Remmer. Exalted company indeed.
