Public Appearances

5th – 7th Dec 2016 Birmingham, UK: I’ll be giving three presentations at UKOUG Tech 16.

  • Tues 6th 12:35 – 13:25, Hall 5: Cost Based Optimisation – the panel session (with Neil Chandler and Martin Widlake acting as MCs)
  • Tues 6th 16:50 – 17:40,Hall 5: Indexing and the Impact of New Technologies
  • Wed 7th  08:50 – 10:50, Hall 5: All about Bitmaps and B-trees – a masterclass on indexes (with a short break in the middle)


  • Wed 7th 11:30 – 12:20,  I’ll be moderating the round-table on the Cost Based Optimizer on the level 5 foyer to Hall 1.

I’m also on the standby list if there’s a cancellation that needs a substitute, but it’s for a two-hour session so there’s less chance of it being needed than a standard session: Interpreting Parallel Execution Plans – a masterclass that starts where typical presentations on reading serial execution plans end.

Please email me questions for the panel session at
