Brian Hitchcock’s secret is simple. For twelve years, he has been reading books on Oracle Database. And taking extensive notes. And publishing them in the NoCOUG Journal.

My secret is simple. For twelve years, I have been reading the extensive book notes that Brian has been publishing in the NoCOUG Journal. I’m the editor of the NoCOUG Journal but that’s not the point.

It’s that simple.

Brian’s notes on Keeping Up with Oracle Database 12c Multitenant—Book One have been published in the latest issue of the NoCOUG Journal. After reading it, you might want to registerfor the spring conference on Friday, May 13 at PayPal and attend the hands-on lab on Oracle Database 12c Multitenant that has been organized by NoCOUG. The lab offers three different sections for three levels of expertise and interest. If you are new to Oracle Multitenant, you should start with Section 1, which covers provisioning of pluggable databases (including create, clone, unplug, and plug-in). If you are already familiar with Oracle Multitenant, you can start directly with Section 2, which covers advanced concepts in security, backup and recovery, resource management, and performance tuning in the context of multitenancy. Section 3 covers Oracle Multitenant Self-Service Provisioning, a web-based application available for download from Oracle Technology Network.

Did I mention that the conference is free for members and their guests, first-time NoCOUG conference attendees, students, and PayPal employees? Bring a friend with you.
