SQL Experts Panel at OpenWorld

Guest Author

Got SQL questions ? Get them logged here, then come along to our SQL Panel at Oracle OpenWorld !

We are holding a panel session exclusively dedicated to the amazing SQL language:

SQL for Functionality, Performance and Maintainability, and its future

We often think of SQL solely in terms of how to tune it. And whilst it is true that SQL performance is a key factor, SQL is also so much more than that. SQL is at the heart of every enterprise running on Oracle Database, so it is critical that our application’s SQL statements don't just run fast, but they are functionally correct, maintainable, and robust to handle the continuing evolution of our applications and database systems.

And we're here to help.

Join this session for a panel of SQL experts for a discussion (and lots of Q&A) on not just how to optimize your SQL statements, but to answer your questions on what features of SQL will help you, how to write robust, maintainable SQL, and get the panel's thoughts on the future of SQL in the ever changing data landscape.

We've picked a a panel with a huge breadth of knowledge and expertise across the whole portfolio of the power that SQL offers.

The panel will consist of

  • John Clarke, Software Development Director, from the renowned Real World Performance Group
  • Keith Laker, Senior Principal Product Manager, who can answer your questions on the incredible analytical SQL functionality
  • Mohamed Zait, Optimizer Development Manager and Architect, who can assist you with your optimizer questions
  • Connor McDonald, former Ace Director, now in Oracle's SQL Advocate team, and
  • Tim Hall, Ace Director, both who come to the panel to share their many years of direct Oracle customer experiences.

Don’t miss your chance to pose your questions to the panel. You will be able to write your question during the session itself (cards will be provided), but the best chance of getting your question in front of the panel is to post it right here in the blog as a blog comment. The panel will try to cover as many questions as we can in the time available.

The session will be Moscone South Room 306, Monday October 26th at 4pm, but in the mean time - don’t be shy, the best questions relate to specific topics of interest to you, the audience. As long they relate to SQL functionality, performance, features or the future of SQL, we'll gladly share our thoughts and knowledge to answer as many of your questions as we can and help you succeed.

And just like there is more than one way to write a SQL, there might be more than one opinion on your question - so don’t be surprised if our experts don’t always agree on their answers. There is no wrong or right here. We love a discussion! It educates us all.

See you at Oracle OpenWorld.
