Video: Best Practices for Application Performance, Scalability, and Availability

Nancy Ikeda nails it in a great Oracle OpenWorld recording of her Best Practices for Application Performance, Scalability, and Availability session now viewable on the Oracle Call Interface page

The session covered:

Best practice coding samples and techniques show how to resolve connection management, statement execution, and data fetching inefficiencies in applications using APIs such as JDBC, OCI, ODBC, ODP.Net, or higher-level scripting languages. This session shows how the Automatic Workload Repository feature of Oracle Database and Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor profiling tools help diagnose application design and coding issues. Specific solutions show how to resolve these and other issues to enhance applications for scalability and resilience. Among the solutions discussed are Oracle Database 12c’s new client configuration file. Developers or DBAs can use it to tune and configure applications without modifying code. Examples use JDBC and OCI but are applicable to all APIs.

Nancy is one of Oracle's senior developers working in the call interface group.

The Oracle Database Access Group is hiring

Over the years I've worked very closely with the Oracle Database Access Group and have a lot of respect for them. I'm happy to share that they are hiring C developers.

To apply, go to irecruitment.oracle.com and enter the code IRC2401606 or IRC2403582 (depending where you want to work) in the Keyword search box.

Here is an excerpt from the job posting:

The Database Access group at Oracle is responsible for providing functionally comprehensive, reliable, high performance, secure and highly available access to the Oracle Database from various client drivers, including proprietary, standards-based and open-source drivers. The group works on the high level drivers, the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) layer, the Oracle wire protocol (TTC) and highly scalable server side protocol handlers that together connect an application written in any language securely to the Oracle Database Server to provide full featured access to the Oracle Database.

Some of the listed requirements are:

  • Strong C programming experience.

  • Knowledge and experience with latest application development technologies including open source and web technologies (e.g. PHP, Ruby, Python, Node.js, HTML5, JavaScript)

I believe it when they also say "Work is non-routine and very complex, involving the application of advanced technical/business skills in area of specialization". Check out the postings for all the details. I look forward to working with you.

Addendum: IRC2401606 is also available.
