About Me

In the DBA Classroom

In the DBA Classroom

My name is Joel Goodman from  Oracle University EMEA based in the UK. I am the Technical Team Leader for Core Technology Delivery in EMEA but specialise in Oracle Database Administrators (DBA)  using the Oracle server and associated products such as Oracle Enterprise Linux. I am also the global technical team leader for the Oracle Database Certification Exam Development team. I am an Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) from releases 7.3 to 11g and an Oracle Certified Master (OCM) on Oracle 9i and 10g.

I teach DBA courses and seminars  for Oracle mostly in Northern Europe and also am a regular presenter at the UK Oracle User Group DBA oriented Special Interst Groups (SIGs). I am also a member of the Oak Table network of Oracle Professionals.

About this Blog

I will use this Blog primarily to discuss Oracle database related topics of interest to DBAs  attending Oracle University courses and seminars,  and user group sessions but I welcome other Oracle DBAs as well.

My intention is to post a couple of times each month and share useful information with you. I will also upload my user group presentations and articles I (co-)wrote over the last few years.
