Richard Let's Talk Database Nov 2015

Due to popular demand, I’ll be running another of my acclaimed seminars in Europe later in the year, this time in Brussels, Belgium on 27-28 September 2018.

This is a must attend seminar of benefit to not only DBAs, but also to Developers, Solution Architects and anyone else interested in designing, developing or maintaining high performance Oracle-based applications. It’s a fun, but intense, content rich seminar that is suitable for people of all experiences (from beginners to seasoned Oracle experts).  Full seminar content.

I’ve had quite a number of requests to run a seminar in this region, so I anticipate quite some interest. However as always, available places are strictly limited to my small class policy.

For all the details and how to register, visit: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/oracle-indexing-internals-best-practices-seminar-with-richard-foote-brussels-tickets-47703933750.

I’m in the process of finalising the venue, but it will definitely be within the Brussels CBD area.

I’m Back !! Oracle Index Internals Seminar Scheduled in Europe For June. April 3, 2013

Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Index Seminar, Richard's Musings.

It’s been quite a while but I’ve recently been asked to present my Indexing Seminar in Europe for Oracle University and at this stage, all the planets seem to be aligning themselves to make this a distinct possibility.

Seminar details are as follows:

Location: Bucharest, Romania

When: 17-18 June 2013

Cost: 2000 RON (approx. 450 EUR)

Enrolment: Follow this link

This will be a unique opportunity as I just don’t get the chance in my schedule to present this any more, to learn some rather interesting and useful information on all things to do with Oracle indexes. Note there are currently no plans to schedule other events in the foreseeable future, this is it.

Hopefully you’ll get the opportunity to attend and I’ll get to meet you in beautiful Bucharest 🙂

Last Notice For Seminars Scheduled For Vienna and Tallinn Next Month February 18, 2011

Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Index Seminar.

Just received an email from Oracle University stating that numbers are very tight for my Index Internals and Best Practices Seminars scheduled next month for Vienna and Tallinn. Unfortunately, due to the travel time, it will be a case of them both running or neither of them going ahead.

With cancelled events in the past, it’s invariably been the case of people complaining later that they were just about to enroll when Oracle University went and cancelled the seminar. These things will unfortunately happen if things are left too late as obviously Oracle University need time to arrange and confirm travel with the presenter, print materials, gives customers who have enrolled sufficient time to give them notice of a cancellation as they often have made travel arrangements, etc. etc.

So if you are interested in attending, may I suggest you contact your local Oracle University rep ASAP of your intention before it’s too late.

Details are:

7-8 March 2011- Vienna

10-11 March 2011 – Tallinn

UPDATE: These seminars have now been confirmed and will definitely go ahead. To those attending, looking forward to seeing you all 🙂

New Indexing Seminars Scheduled For Vienna and Tallinn (New Europeans) January 15, 2011

Posted by Richard Foote in Oracle Index Seminar.

I have two Oracle Index Internals and Best Practices seminars scheduled in the coming months, in Austria (Vienna) and Estonia (Tallinn). These could very well be my last seminars for quite a while as I’m unsure whether I’ll be able to travel again this year, so this could be your last opportunity to see me in action 🙂

Details are:

7-8 March 2011 – Vienna

10-11 March 2011 – Tallinn

You need to book early to ensure your place and to ensure the seminars go ahead. Last year, a seminar in Prague was nearly cancelled due to lack of numbers only for 20 people to enroll in the last couple of weeks.

Hopefully, I’ll get to meet some of you at these events, assuming of course the Australian airports aren’t flooded, a distinct possibility considering the amount of rain that has been falling lately in this continent !!

Upcoming Index Seminar Dates (The Tourist) June 8, 2010

I’ve just finalised some European dates for my Oracle Index Internals and Best Practices Seminar for later in the year. Location and dates are as follows:

Turkey (Istanbul): 18-19 October 2010

Germany (Munich): 21-22 October 2010

Czech Republic (Prague) : 25-26 October 2010

As usual, always a good idea to book early to avoid disappointment. Last time I taught this in Germany, it was totally booked out.

I’ll also be attending and presenting at Oracle OpenWorld this year. I’ve been asked to present a session for the OpenWorld Oracle User Group Forum on the Sunday (19 September 2010) and with a bit of luck and a few more votes, perhaps the Indexing 11g R1 & R2 New Features presentation I submitted via the Oracle Mix Suggest-A-Session. I’ll also no doubt present something again during the Unconference as I have in past years.

So plenty of opportunity to catch up at some point during the year.

Busy Busy Busy !!! October 23, 2008

I thought I better publish something just in case anyone feared I had fallen down a cliff or something.

These’s last few weeks have been so hectic, it’s been crazy. I seriously got home tonight and noticed that some of my roses in the garden were blooming and I actually made a conscious decision to smell them and just enjoy the moment.

Then I remembered I was running late and had to help with the kids and that precious little moment just disappeared 🙂

Played in a football tournament over the weekend where I played 6 games of soccer over two days in 29C heat, so my body is suffering a bit at the moment. We won the “Saucer” and the title of “The Best of the Worst” teams so it was a somewhat successful campaign !! Scored a few goals as well 🙂

Much of my spare time is spent getting everything organised and ready for my trip to Europe next week. All the dates for my Indexing “Extravaganza” Seminar tour as part of the Oracle University Celebrity series have now been confirmed so there’s a lot of travel and a lot of presenting ahead of me over the coming weeks.

All the dates and venues can be found on my Public Appearance page and list on the right.

I’ve also been invited to present at the Finland Oracle User Group on October 30 at Helsinki so I’m now leaving a few days earlier to make it a nice round 3 week trip in total. I’m actually feeling just a little bit tired and exhausted just thinking about it all but it should be a whole lot of fun and I look forward to meeting some of you on my travels. I haven’t been to many of these places before so any good suggestions of where to eat, drink and what to see always appreciated 🙂

The blog has had to take a back seat but I’ll try and write something before I go and a few entries during my travels. Looking forward to the Christmas holidays already !!
