    • Lovell,

      No plans, although I have dropped in a couple of times over the last few years; but it tends to be a short trip while I’m doing something else.
      Maybe the next time I’m working in NY I could hop across the border for a few hours. (That’s how I managed to fit in a couple of sessions with the user group in Vancouver – I think one was day trip between my speaking sessions at OpenWorld, another was a day trip up from a gig I was doing in Seattle.)

  2. Hello Jonathan,

    I would really like you to visit us in Morocco, because we really need you to seminars.

    • ZH,

      Whereabouts in Morocco – I visit Gibraltar from time to time, and Tangier is just the other side of the straits.
      Maybe you could get your local Oracle Rep to persuade Oracle University to do something there.

    • SP,

      It’s been a couple of years since I attended AIOUG – I’m trying to reduce the number of long-haul flights I take each year, but maybe it’s about time I asked the ACE program if they would sponsor me to appear at AIOUG again.

  4. Jonathan -

    Just want to say I loved your course on Indexes at Thompson Reuters in Eagan Minnesota! I do wish you come back next this year (2013) for more seminars.

    • D,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Your wish is granted, by the way; I’ve just posted details of a couple of new courses I’ve just finished designing, and a couple of provisional dates for running them in Minneapolis. (Over the next few weeks we’ll be trying to set up a timetable for a few more visits for these, and the other courses, across the USA for the rest of the year.)

  5. Hi Jonathan,

    I really enjoyed your course last year. Do you have plan to come to Dallas area in Texas sometime in 2013?

    • Jason,

      Thanks for the comment.

      I don’t have any plans for Texas at present – but I’ve got a couple of days pencilled in for Minneapolis at the end of September, so I’ll be looking at finding a couple more days elsewhere while I’m in the USA – it’s too far to travel for just two days – so I’m open to suggestions.

  6. Hi Jonathan,

  7. Vijay,

    Not this year, but the China trip I had pencilled in for October has been merged with the OTN APAC tour, and I think I’ll be covering Japan and China. Unfortunately I don’t have time for the whole APAC trip which covers NZ and Australia – but I may be able to do that next year.

  8. Hello Jonathan,

    Happy to hear that you will be coming to Dubai in the first week of Feb next year. Anyways, will get in touch with nearest OU rep for further details.

    By the way, one of your book by name “Cost-Based Oracle Fundamentals” still happens to be one of my favorite book. Very detailed explanation about optimizers. I could say, those who moved from core-developers to DBA, this will really help in understanding the concepts of histograms and mainly the chapter of ‘Upgrade Headaches’ & 10053 trace file options.

  9. Hi Jonathan,

    We would really like to attend your seminar in Dubai. But 3700$ needed for registration for the whole Oracle University event seems
    rather expensive ( to me at least). Can it be any alternative ways of attending your seminars in Dubai? I mean, is it necessary to visit the whole session
    and to pay the whole large price for five days, while we are particularily insterested only in your sessions.

    Thank you in Advance.
    Yours Sincerely, Evgeniy.

    • Evgeniy,

      I don’t have anything to do with the arrangements that Oracle University make, I just show up and do the presentations. You’ll have to contact Oracle direct to see if there are any arrangements for attending part of the event. If you have friends in the same position a group effort might be the most effective thing to do.

  10. […] footnote: I’ll be repeating November’s 90 minute webinar on parallel execution plans on 15th April. I’ll also be doing a full-day webinar on trouble-shooting (spread over two […]
