Patrick Barel invited for Oracle Groundbreakers APAC Tour 2019Published on: Author: Patrick Barel Category: News
It’s going to be some busy weeks for Qualogy’s Oracle ACE Director Patrick Barel. Just returned from Oracle OpenWorld, he can already pack his suitcase again. From October 11 until 22, he is going to visit 7 cities in Asia and the Pacific for the Oracle Groundbreakers APAC Tour 2019. Patrick is going to give one of his acclaimed presentations in every city. He gives us a preview of this special trip.
“The Oracle Groundbreakers APAC Tour is a series of User Group meetings in Asia and the Pacific. Around the world, Oracle Groundbreakers and ACE Directors are flown in for presentations. In Australia, there are speakers from the U.S.A., France, Argentina, New Zealand, India, and the Netherlands. The events are widely orientated: from Database Development, Java and DevOps via Middleware to DBA, NoSQL and Cloud. The 2 big themes are Cloud and the Autonomous Database.”
A great honor
“It is a great honor to be invited to the Groundbreakers APAC Tour. I am especially looking forward to the presentations in New Zealand and Australia. Those places really spark my imagination. Events from the ACE-program are also organized in New Zealand and Australia.”
Calendar Groundbreakers APAC Tour
Patrick has a busy schedule during the tour. In 11 days, he is going to present in the following 7 cities:
A sneak peek
“My presentations are made for developers. ‘Get your money’s worth out of your Database’ is also interesting for Architects and DBAs. In this presentation, I will discuss a few Oracle Database features that are very useful, but unknown to the general public.
In ‘A gentle introduction to Polymorphic Table Functions’, I will explain the possibilities of the 18c feature in the Oracle Database. And in ‘Get to know your program by instrumentation’, I will show you how to get better insight into the course of your program, by using the Open Source framework ‘Logger’.”
“Hopefully, I will have some time to acquire knowledge myself during the many interesting presentations. If the schedule allows it, I plan to visit presentations about SQL, PL/SQL and APEX. I would really like to attend a presentation from Connor McDonald. That will be tricky, because his presentations are usually around the same time as mine. I would also like to try to attend a presentation from Richard Foote about Oracle Indexes.”
Continuation APAC Tour
“After my last presentation in Seoul, the tour will continue without me. Tokyo will be visited on October 24, and lastly, Taiwan on October 26. My colleague and Oracle ACE Michel Schildmeijer will give a presentation in Tokyo. With this, Qualogy will have a speaker at nearly every event of the APAC Tour.”
Meet The Oracle Masters congress
“After the tour, I barely have time to rest. Because on October 30, Qualogy organizes the Meet The Oracle Masters congress, with Steven Feuerstein and Chris Saxon. There, I get to give the opening presentation. Via a video connection, Steven Feuerstein will give 2 presentations. Chris Saxon will be present the entire day and give, among other things, 2 presentations.
The Meet The Oracle Masters congress is a unique opportunity for SQL and PL/SQL developers to learn from these Oracle celebrities. For more information about the congress and tickets, visit www.qualogy.com/oracle-masters.”
