1-Day Oracle Performance Research Seminar 2013

Our seminar is a unique Oracle performance analysis course answering the "why" questions. Scientific experimentation has led to a number of amazing discoveries about how Oracle really works and how to practically use this to our advantage.

This Research Seminar was developed by OraPub founder and Oracle ACE Director, Craig Shallahamer, author of the books Oracle Performance Firefighting and Forecasting Oracle Performance and the insightful blog, A Wider View. Craig is a gifted teacher with 20+ years of experience. He has a knack for making complex topics come alive and become seemingly uncomplicated.

Each year Craig takes his raw research and weaves it into a cohesive seminar that is extremely day-to-day practical. We hope you can join us for this fast paced and exciting day!
