Python, Oracle Cloud, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency – The Perfect Combination (Connect 2019)

Python is probably the most trending programming language you can learn these days!

It’s very popular because it’s easy to learn and use, runs on all operating systems and allows you to build a broad variety of programs: Be that web applications, desktop applications, utility scripts or using it for data science and machine learning.

In this session, you’ll learn how to use Python within Oracle Cloud – and you’ll do so by going step by step in how to build your own Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. These are of course also highly trending topics and not a lot of people understand what a Blockchain really is.

A must attend sessions for any IT Professional!

Does the Cloud Mean the End of the DBA? Life After Oracle Autonomous Database (Connect 2019)

Cloud is transforming the enterprise and the career path of the DBA. See how. As cloud gains momentum and migrations of applications and databases become more common, the question is often asked “Does Cloud mean the end of the DBA?”. Cloud is likely not the end of the DBA, but instead an agent in unprecedented change. This webcast will cover how Cloud is bringing about that evolution and what today’s DBAs must know to be successful in a Cloud-enabled future. Learn about:

• How the DBA is transforming into more strategic roles such as Data Architect
• Trends and predictions on what will impact IT
• How today’s DBAs can prepare and develop skill sets that will translate into a successful career path in the Cloud

Journey to the future – Discovering Oracle Developer Cloud Services and more (Connect 2019)

Learn all about Oracle Developer Cloud Services and how to Streamline Team Development and Software Delivery using a SaaS solution.

You will be able to plan and manage: Issue tracking, Team management, Agile Dashboard.

With regards to code: Version management, code review, and track changes.

Plus build and deliver (continuous integration, orchestration, deployment automation) and finally team collaboration (activity stream, wiki, web dashboard).

You can make it work with PL/SQL. SQL , Oracle APEX and more. This session will cover a couple of real live scenarios and user cases, including APEX on Autonomous Database.

Running Oracle Database and Applications in Docker Containers on Windows (Connect 2019)

Windows Server 2016 introduced native container support allowing Windows developers to take advantage of the many benefits of Docker containers, including ease of deployment, consistency, scalability, and platform flexibility. This session includes demos showing how to configure and use the Oracle Database , Oracle Database Client, and .NET libraries with Docker for Windows. We’ll detail supported configurations and known issues.

Leveraging Visual Studio Code for Oracle Database development (Connect 2019)

Visual Studio Code is the free cross platform and open source development environment for Linux, Windows and Mac that has rocketed up the surveys to become the most popular development environment today. Is it a good fit for Oracle developers? The answer is a resounding “yes!” and in this session we will show you why. See demos of Oracle’s support for SQL and PL/SQL in Visual Studio Code as well as an Oracle Cloud browser for exploring and managing Oracle Autonomous Database resources from within Visual Studio Code. We’ll also show similar features offered in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Developing Microservices with .NET Core and Kubernetes (Connect 2019)

.NET Core is a popular cross-platform technology useful for developing microservices that leverage docker containers, while Kubernetes is a platform for managing containerized workloads and services that facilitates configuration and automation. In this session we will show how to get started developing microservices using .NET Core and deploy into a Kubernetes environment in the cloud using Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes. We’ll point out the latest tips and tricks and also alert you to gotchas to watch out for.

The latest and greatest features (Connect 2019)

Whilst most fanfare on 12.2/18c/19c is about cloud-first, sharding, and autonomous database, there is a multitude of other enhancements that DBAs and Developers would benefit from immediately. This session focuses on the lesser known but still critical new features and improvements in 12.2/18c and even 19c.

Back to basics – the fundamentals of SQL processing (Connect 2019)

Well done! You’ve come up with the killer idea for 2019. You’ve got the best UI design anyone has ever seen! Your modern application ticks all the boxes—serverless, functional, Kubernetes, Kafka, microservices, API-based, the list goes on. It runs on every OS and every type of device. But unfortunately, all of this counts for absolutely NOTHING if your data access is slow or buggy. Better data access typically means understanding how SQL is processed by the database, and who has time for that? SQL can be hard to understand and sometimes totally hidden from view under an ORM. Let’s peel back the covers to show how SQL is processed, how to avoid getting hacked, and how to get data back to your application in a snappy fashion.

Flashback—Not Just for DBAs (Connect 2019)

There is a remarkable human condition where you can be both cold AND sweaty at the same time. It comes about three seconds after you press the Commit button and you realize that you probably needed to have a WHERE clause on that “delete all rows from the SALES table” SQL statement. But Flashback is not only for those “Oh No!” moments. It enables benefits for developers ranging from data consistency to continuous integration and data auditing. Tucked away in Enterprise Edition are six independent and powerful technologies that might just save your career—they will also open up a myriad of other benefits of well.

Get to know your program by instrumentation (Connect 2019)

When we create our programs, we usually don’t anticipate anything will go wrong. And it won’t, during development and testing. But in production there is always someone who does something unexpected and your code fails. When running in dev you can easily step through your code and see what happens, but in production you are not allowed to do this. How great would it be that you could see what was happening in the production environment? But logging every step takes up a lot of the performance. Installing debuggable code in production just to see what’s going on is usually a no-go. By instrumenting your code you can get the information you need by ‘flipping a switch’. This session shows how you can use the (extended) Open Source Logger framework to accomplish this.
