You can download the the slides and scripts here. They are available from the IOUG site but I thought I would put them for download here as well.
- Rise of the Machines slides
- Secure Your Database in a Single Day slides scripts
- Beginning Oracle Performance Tuning slides scripts
- How Oracle Locking Works slides
My article Cache Fusion Demystified on SELECT Journal won the Editor's Choice award for 2011. This article is available for free download here.
I hope you like them. As always, feedback - good, bad and something in between - will be appreciated.
Update as of April 29th, 2012
I usually add more stuff to my slides after the session is over. This may result from a direct attendee feedback that some content was not clear, inadequate, misleading or even incorrect. This time is no exception. I added some more content to make the concepts clearer. Also many thanks to Charles Hooper for pointing out an Oracle documentation bug which makes two scripts in my session incorrect. I have since corrected the slides and re-uploaded. Please redownload the slides for How Oracle Locking Works and specifically look at the slides 14, 18, 24, 25 and 26. Also please download the scripts for Beginning Oracle Performance Tuning. More specifically, the script lock1.sql has changed.
