The Developer Live event for database has concluded. Thank you to the (almost) 2000 people that attended my talk across the USA, Europe and APAC timezones! I very much appreciate you giving up your time to attend the session.
Whilst we were doing some Q&A I tried to add as many useful links into the chat line as I could, to help people with onward learning on SQL performance and database performance in general. A few of you then asked if I could publish that chat as to not lose that information, so here it is below
From Me to Everyone: 04:06 PM
Its Connor here. Chris Saxon and I are monitoring the Q&A channel, so fire off your questions and we’ll answer them right here. Anything we can’t answer, we’ll tackle at a later date.
Sessions are all recorded and will be made available in the next day or so.
Check back on https://developer.oracle.com/developer-live/database for the recordings.
