Oracle Week 2016: Oracle Database Advanced Querying 2016 (slides)
This is the presentation for Oracle Advanced Querying session I did in Oracle Week few weeks ago.
Since most of my readers aren’t from Israel, let explain a bit about this event. Oracle Week is by far the biggest Oracle oriented conference/event in Israel. It’s a 5 days conference that is being organized by John Bryce Education (a technology schooling company) and has around 1500 participants each year. It’s an educational event – meaning, as less promotion/sell speeches as possible.
One of the main differences between this event and other conferences is the platform: instead of having five or six 45-60 minutes sessions, back to back – the event has 10-12 different day long sessions every day, for 5 days. Each session is from 9:00 until 16:30 (with breaks, of course) so there are enough time to go over many different aspects of the same topic.
This session is one of the crown jewels. For years it was considered to be the largest session in the conference (with 60-80 attendees) and couple of years ago it landed in my laps.
This year session was very good. The participant reviews was around 4.8/5 and course material were around 4.9/5 which was awesome. We had around 45 people in the class what smaller than last year but still the biggest session of the day.
This year agenda included some of 12.2 new features (the ones I got to actually test, not all of them) which was a big improvment on last years session.
In the agenda:
- Aggregative and advanced grouping options
- Analytic functions, ranking and pagination
- Hierarchical and recursive queries
- Regular Expressions
- Oracle 12c new rows pattern matching
- XML and JSON handling with SQL
- Oracle 12c (12.1 + 12.2) new features
- SQL Developer Command Line tool
The presentation is available for download from Slideshare.
