 Oracle SQL Developer Tips & Tricks
 alumni.png Jeff Smith, Oracle Corporation


This session concentrates on the power features that most users bypass when using Oracle SQL Developer and our new command line interface, SQLcl. Do you use all the shortcuts available? After this talk, you'll know how to get what you want, as quickly as you want it. We're rebuilding this session from scratch. That's right, in 2019, this talk will be BRAND NEW. So, if it's been a while since you've seen it, come back and get caught up. As always, our goal is for each attendee to pick up one to three techniques that will drastically impact their productivity and save them time when working with Oracle Database.

 Maximizing Your Analytics Impact: Why Your Most Critical Data Set Might Be Analytics Usage
 Matthew Halliday, Incorta


Amidst the frenzy and pressure to roll out advanced analytics and dashboards—and the corresponding obstacles presented by common data warehouse approaches—most companies don’t have the time or resource bandwidth to consider analytics usability as a key data source. But it should be.

That’s because true competitive differentiation only comes to those who understand which analytics-driven insights are used, how they’re used, the transactional details behind the insights, and if those insights truly help business users do their jobs and do them well. By viewing usability data as an additional data source and linking it with the corresponding transactional data, you analyze your analytics through the eyes of its consumers and continually optimize it for improved insights.

 Stay Out of APEX Debt!
 ACE Director.jpg Scott Spendolini, Viscosity North America


Technical debt is a term often used to describe projects that continue to cost an organization money each year. Often poorly designed or built by novices, these applications are not only difficult to maintain, but also make an organization less efficient and even vulnerable to security flaws.

With APEX, there’s no excuse to wind up in this situation. Out of the box, APEX offers plenty of functionality to solve most business problems. This session will review the vast and rich set of APEX components while offering advice on what not to do when building APEX applications to ensure that you stay debt free.

 You CAN Judge a Book by Its Cover: Modernize Your User Interface with Mobile Design Principles
 ACE Director.jpg Peter KoletzkeIndependent Consultant


Mobile app design has raised the bar for the design of modern business applications. Business users now expect the speed and intuitiveness of mobile apps to be in the applications they run at work. In addition, modern business applications may need to support multiple display devices and their mobile capabilities, such as orientation change.

This session examines why our application user interfaces using popular development environmentssuch as APEX, JET, MAF, MAX, VBCS, JavaScript, Java, ADF, or even Oracle Formsneed to comply with principles used in mobile apps. We'll then review standards available from sources such as Oracle Alta UI for guiding user interface design of new or existing applications, so they fulfill expectations for device support and intuitiveness.

The presentation also shows example applications which demonstrate mobile design principles and gives resources for further study.

 Python and Terraform for the Oracle Cloud DBA
 Jessica Sharp, Infolob

The cloud is more than just your database on someone else’s server in someone else's data center. Moving to the cloud and managing it is more than clicking some buttons on a website and moving the data in. Come see what you need to know about Terraform as a cloud DBA to gracefully automate the creation of your cloud infrastructure using any cloud platform. Shift from Bash scripting to Python scripting to manage the cloud and your databases after you migrate. Join me as I break down how the spirit of tools like Python and Terraform blend with the evolution of the DBA.

 Top 10 Ways to Totally Mess Up an AWR Analysis
 ACE Director.jpg Craig Shallahamer, Orapub


You think you have seen it all...and then you see something new. I have studied hundreds of AWR reports and thought through thousands of performance scenarios. While I know how to use an AWR or Statspack report to analyze Oracle performance, I have also learned how to totally mess up the analysis.

There are some obvious ways to totally invalidate your analysis. But there are also some subtle mess ups that fool you into thinking your time-based analysis is rock solid when it's worthless and probably misleading.

Join me for a lighthearted session as we explore what NOT to do.

 Buzzword Breakdown – Blockchain, Big Data, IoT, Machine Learning
 Tom Blakeley, Performance Architects


Blockchain, Big Data, IoT, Machine Learning, AI: People throw around these buzzwords so much, we all think that everyone knows what they're doing, but they don't! This session aims to give participants a “safe space” to learn, a foundational knowledge of the technical lingo we hear daily, and a sense of what it might mean for the future. We will tie this in with technology and functional processes to help better understand their potential impact—and how we might decide to use one of them seriously!
