OpenWorld is done!

Posted by

The OpenWorld conference is over for another year. It’s always a thrill, albeit a hard-working thrill, to visit San Francisco and be a part of such a huge event.

I’ll have a full wrap up post and video soon, but I wanted to get quick blog post out there so people could get a link to see the slides from my sessions.

See my OpenWorld 2018 content here

To all those people that attended my sessions, thanks for giving up your time. I hope you got lots of benefit out of the content. And as always, if you have any feedback on what you liked, or how I can make the content better for you, please drop me a comment below.

If you’d like me to speak at your local event, please reach out to me on Twitter. I can’t make any promises – these things all depend on scheduling and budgeting, but I’ll always try my best.

See you at another event soon!


  1. Hi Connor,

    Thanks for sharing your presentation.
    What is the function of the HINT_REPORT format option of DBMS_XPLAN in 19c that you mention on slide 145?


    1. That kind of information appears to be included in the Dumping Hints section from a 10053 trace file.
      The following extract shows an example of that section:

       Dumping Hints
       atom_hint=(@=ffffffff7b3e26f0 err=0 resol=1 used=1 token=83 org=1 lvl=3 txt=INDEX ("E065" "S05E001_IX02") )

      I look forward to seeing how it will be shown by DBMS_XPLAN in 19c.

  2. Hi Connor,
    I attended a couple of your sessions in the 2018 openworld. You presentation were great. They were short but very helpful and beneficial. Will you publish a grab-ALL of the content for OpenWorld 2018 like you did for 2017?

    Thank you,
