Oracle Database 11g for Dummies

How cool is that? Oracle Database 11g now has its own "For Dummies" edition:

"Dummies" books are available for Oracle9i Database and PL/SQL as well, but Oracle Database 10g was ignored for some reason unknown to me.

There really is a lot of Oracle content out there for newbies, contrary to popular belief - even an "Oracle for Newbies" seminar from Belgian consulting outfit iAdvise. We're going to try to leverage that content in some way this year, iAdvise willing.

And speaking of newbies, it's high time that OTN invaded a college campus near you. I have a fantasy about Oracle ACEs taking their place among the ranks of undergrad CS students worldwide. At the very least we should be carpet-bombing Stanford and UC Berkeley with dev software DVDs, no?

"I have a fantasy about Oracle ACEs taking their place among the ranks of undergrad CS students worldwide." "Their place"? I wonder, how many ACE's already have a degree in CS?

Meaning: let's find some deserving CS undergraduates and make them Oracle ACEs.
