Agile Development with PL/SQL

Agile Development gives us the ability to work on multiple features at the same time and change which ones to ship at any point in time, quickly. This might be challenging for PL/SQL teams to accomplish, to say the least. This short video shows how Gitora, version control tool for PL/SQL, helps Oracle PL/SQL developers solve this problem.

This session discusses common database challenges and how they can be solved with newer DevOps practices without impacting the DBAs “safe zone”.

Development, testing, provisioning, patching, upgrading and managing will become easier with agile tools, virtualization and collaboration.

The take-aways from this session are to embrace DevOps basics with a “DBA twist” such as: Develop, Rinse, RepeatTest Until Your Five Year Old Can Do ItHuman Intervention Creates Human Error- Automate EVERYTHING.How the shorter development cycle build business success.How the DBA can do more with less.Discover the power of virtualization and agile development practices providing more value to even the most senior database expert.

We’ll demo different scenarios surrounding…

Smart Database Architecture for Software Development

Image
We are incredibly excited to announce that the amazing Toon Koppelaars from Oracle Real World Performance Team is hosting our next webinar: Smart Database Architecture for Software Development. Register at this link.





About the Webinar

Is the database a processing engine or a persistence layer? In this presentation we'll first go through a bit of history demonstrating how the database has been used in the past 30 years: at times it was a processing engine, and at other times it was just a persistence layer. 

Having witnessed many application development projects, we are convinced that the database ought to be used as a processing engine. The persistence layer approach, where all business logic is implemented outside the database has serious drawbacks in the areas of initial application development, ongoing maintenance, and most notably in the area of performance and scalability.

We'll discuss these drawbacks, in particular the last one: We'll debunk once and for all that movin…

Apache Spark for Oracle Developers

Image
In the last few years, business problems that have been traditionally solved using databases are now being solved using other technologies. Apache Spark is one of the emerging technologies which is used for large scale data processing.

Attend the free webinar by Ivan Lokicand learn how you can use Apache Spark in Big Data applications.  


About the Webinar: Apache Spark is a general computing engine designed for large-scale data processing. Many well-known companies use it to process petabytes of data on 8000+ nodes with long running jobs measured in weeks.

In this webinar, you will learn about: Apache Spark and how Spark relates to (traditional) Hadoop MapReduce technologyWhat makes Spark so fastHow to use the rich set of Spark API’s to design and run your ETL jobsApache Spark streaming capabilities for near real-time updates and its role in Big Data processing scenariosStructured Streaming, a scalable and fault tolerant stream processing engine which makes near real-time processing scena…
