Welcome to the blog of Oracle's Developer Advocates for SQL! We are Natalka Roshak and Chris Saxon and we're here to share the joy of SQL. Follow our blog here or follow our daily SQL tips on Twitter at @sqldaily.
Chris has built up expertise in SQL over the past ten years working as an Oracle developer, DBA and architect. During this time he's built up a passion for interacting with data using SQL and helping others do the same. Combining this with a love of games and quizzes, Chris started the design quiz on the PL/SQL Challenge in 2013. He's looking forward to helping spread the word about SQL so that people get the most out of their data.
Chris blogs at www.sqlfail.com, at site where he shows how people fail to make appropriate use of Oracle using SQL and PL/SQL statements, along with SQL brainteasers and other topics that interest him. You can get in touch with Chris via email at email@example.com or follow him on Twitter @chrisrsaxon.
