I’m working on creating two new courses – one of them about Oracle structures (tables, indexes etc.) the other about Oracle mechanisms (undo, redo etc.). The aim of the courses is to help people do the right thing, avoid the wrong thing, and recognise the difference; the latter, as you might guess, is based loosely on my last book. The courses will probably be ready some time around March next year.
One of the problems of creating the content for courses like this is getting the balance between what people really need to know, what they already know, and what they would really like to know (or know better); so I thought I’d throw the idea open to the public and ask the question: what would you like to learn (more) about if you came on one of these courses.
Generally I’m hoping for response like: “how Oracle does X”, “Why Oracle does Y”, “What’s the difference between A and B”, “When is P better than Q”, “Why would you use feature F “, but it would be particularly helpful if you could also include a comment about why you think the point ought to be included.
