Read below a brief synopsis of each webinar:

Oracle Indexing Internals

This is a must attend webinar 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 webinar that is suitable for people of all experiences (from beginners to seasoned Oracle experts).

Indexes are fundamental to every Oracle database and are crucial for optimal performance. However, there’s an incredible amount of misconception, misunderstanding and pure myth regarding how Oracle indexes function and should be maintained. Many applications and databases are suboptimal and run inefficiently primarily because an inappropriate indexing strategy has been implemented.

This webinar examines most available Oracle index structures/options and discusses in considerable detail how indexes function, how/when they should be used and how they should be maintained. A key component of the webinar is how indexes are costed and evaluated by the Cost Based Optimizer (CBO) and how appropriate data management practices are vital for an effective indexing strategy. It also covers many useful tips and strategies to maximise the benefits of indexes on application/database performance and scalability, as well as in maximising Oracle database investments. Much of the material is exclusive to this webinar and is not generally available in Oracle documentation or in Oracle University courses.

Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning

This is a must attend webinar aimed at Oracle professionals (both DBAs and Developers) who are interested in Performance Tuning.  The webinar details how to maximise the performance of both Oracle databases and associated applications and how to diagnose and address any performance issues as quickly and effectively as possible.

When an application suddenly runs “slow” or when people start complaining about the “poor performance” of the database, there’s often some uncertainty in how to most quickly and most accurately determine the “root” cause of any such slowdown and effectively address any associated issues. In this seminar, we explore a Tuning Methodology that helps Oracle professionals to both quickly and reliably determine the actual causes of performance issues and so ensure the effectiveness of any applied resolutions.

Looking at a number of real world scenarios and numerous actual examples and test cases, this webinar will show participants how to confidently and reliably diagnose performance issues. The webinar explores in much detail the various diagnostics tools and reports available in Oracle to assist in determining any database performance issue and importantly WHEN and HOW to effectively use each approach. Additionally, participants are also invited to share their own database/SQL reports, where we can apply the principles learnt in diagnosing the performance of their actual databases/applications.

One of the more common reasons for poor Oracle performance is inefficient or poorly running SQL. This seminar explores in much detail how SQL is executed within the Oracle database, the various issues and related concepts important in understanding why SQL might be inefficient and the many capabilities and features Oracle has in helping to both resolve SQL performance issues and to maintain the stability and reliability of SQL execution.

It’s a fun, but intense, content rich webinar that is suitable for people of all experiences (from beginners to seasoned Oracle experts).

I’m very excited to be running my high acclaimed “Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning” Seminar in Berlin, Germany on 31 March – 1 April 2020 in conjunction with DOUG. If you enjoyed my “Oracle Indexing Internals and Best Practices” Seminar, you will simply love this seminar 🙂

It’s with great excitement that I announce I’ll finally be returning to London, UK in March 2020 to run both of my highly acclaimed seminars. The dates and registration links are as follows:

23-24 March 2020: “Oracle Indexing Internals and Best Practices” seminar – Tickets and Registration Link

25-26 March 2020: “Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning” Seminar – Tickets and Registration Link

You can also purchase tickets to both seminars at a special 20% combo discount:

23-26 March 2020:  Both “Oracle Indexing Internals and Best Practices” and “Oracle Performance Diagnostics and Tuning” Seminars – Tickets and Registration Link

The cost for each individual seminar is:

  • Early Bird Rate (enrollments prior to 31 January 2020) £990.00 (+ VAT)
  • General Rate  (enrollments post 31 January 2020) £1190 (+VAT)

The cost for the seminar combo is:

  • General Rate  (enrollments post 31 January 2020) £1900 (+VAT)

 

The venue is the rather nice Hilton London Kensington.

Prices include attendance to the seminar, both soft and hard copy of the extensive seminar materials, lunch and morning/afternoon tea/coffee.

Both seminars are very highly acclaimed, with past attendees universally applauding the quality and educational outcomes of the training.  They’re both aimed at Oracle Professionals (DBAs and Developers) who are interested in Performance Tuning and how to maximise the performance of both Oracle Databases and associated applications.

All the details of the Oracle Indexing Internals and Best Practices Seminar.

All the details of the Oracle Performance Diagnostic and Tuning Seminar.

Both seminars have strictly limited places to ensure a quality event for all attendees with venues booked with only small classes in mind. So I recommend booking early (as it’s cheaper) and to avoid possible disappointment. I don’t get to run these kind of events in the UK very often (it would be over 2 years since I last run seminars in London) so do take advantage of attending what will be a unique training opportunity while you can.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment or contact me at richard@richardfooteconsulting.com.

Hope to see you at one or both of these seminars next year !!
