Next Meeting Thursday 30-Jan-2014 1:00 PM

30-Jan-2014 13:00 - 17:00 at the DMACC campus, Bldg 7, Maple Room.

Oracle 12 New Features in demo of building and deploying the new container database. Demonstration of a variety of new Oracle12 features.

Its been a good year for our user group. The attendance has picked up some and we have had great topics with Rac experts, topics from Oracle Corp, and Data Warehouse experts. Let me know what you would like to see in 2014. We will do another meeting in the April/May time frame then another probably just after Oracle Open World...October time frame.

Our first meeting of 2014 will be January 30th at 1:00 PM till 5:00 PM at the Ankeny DMACC Campus...building 7...the Maple room (the first room...)...the usual location :)

I will demonstrate Oracle 12 New Features that include building a PDB database (pluggable instance), setting up connectivity to this PDB, adding an admin user and adding application users to this same well as many things I've noticed while working with Oracle 12 so far. I will cover most, if not all of my "Dan's Oracle 12 Top 10 New Features".

The second presentation will be on using the Oracle data dictionary. I hope to have Oracle 12 Dictionary Posters from the Rolta people for this meeting... and we will show the new Container/Pluggable Database views as well as many of the common uses (with scripts) of the dictionary views. I'd like to see you bring your useful dictionary scripts on a thumb drive to demonstrate and share with the group!

I'd like to ask your help in spreading the word about the next Iowa Oracle User Group meeting. Please tell anybody that you think would be interested in attending It's free!

I wish you all the best in this holiday season...and all the best in 2014.
