A big “thank you” to all who attended my presentations at this year’s New Zealand Oracle User Group meeting in Auckland.

This year, I gave two talks and the slide decks I used are now available:

I was worried that the latter presentation might be a bit code-heavy, but I was heartened by the feedback from the audience who told me that they had come along to my session safe in the knowledge that they could get their code ‘fix.’ It seems that it IS possible to get tired of overview slides and discussions of how the right index can make performance “up to a bit percent better“…

And to prove that I really was there:
