The Ultimate Class! Learn Oracle at Sea

Share Button

In the Steve Karam Philosophy, every DBA deserves a few things:

  • Access to Metalink
  • Loads of good coffee
  • At least two computers
  • A yearly cruise on which they can learn Oracle

There’s only one thing better than an Oracle class, and that’s an Oracle class taught by top notch instructors aboard a cruise ship sailing the western Caribbean. I’ve been on two such cruises, and they’re getting better every year.

Last year, I taught aboard the Carnival Glory in a three day RAC at Sea blitz. This year I was joined by John Garmany and Don Burleson in our Oracle Tuning TechBlast at Sea aboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas, where we explored many advanced Oracle topics: everything from object storage to backups to the optimizer.

In March of 2009, we’ll be setting sail again with the Oracle TechBlast at sea on the new Independence of the Seas, a veritable floating city. One day of class will be held in the Ft. Lauderdale Grande Hotel and Yacht Club, with the two remaining days being at-sea days aboard the ship. Stops this year include Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel, with no class on port days! Topics include Oracle RAC, Tuning, Streams, Dataguard, and more.

You can read all about the 2009 TechBlast here.

I hope that you can join myself, John Garmany, Andy Kerber, and Don Burleson as we run through a wide array of important Oracle topics.

Having a hard time convincing your boss? Try these tactics!

It’s a great opportunity and a lot of fun. Bring your friends, your family, and enjoy joining a group of fellow Oracle professionals in one of the best training opportunities out there.

  1. Sounds like a great deal. Someday I will wake up on that cruise ship for real instead of in dreams.
