Mind the “Data Gap” for DevOps Success Wednesday February 15, 2017, 1:00pm MST DevOps expert Gene Kim explains how to join the Fast Release Revolution Every day, industry leaders like Google, Amazon and Etsy make thousands of deployments, turning to the Lean Startup and DevOps movements to power that market-driven necessity. However, these companies are outliers--many others struggle to make significant gains despite the investment of time and money into new programs. What sets the exceptional outliers apart from those who are failing to keep pace is a robust strategy around data. This "Data Gap" disproportionately affects companies with large ERP implementations or other complex systems of record. Join Gene Kim, along with Adam Bowen from Delphix, to explore how to bolster your approach to data management for a stronger, more efficient software development lifecycle.

2017 CodeTalk Series - The PL/SQL Ninja: PL/SQL Can Do WHAT? Steven Feuerstein interviews Morten Egan Thu, Feb 16, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST How do we make PL/SQL as easy and fun to develop in as Node/Ruby/Python/[flavor of the day]? What are the things that make a language “cool” to build stuff in? Apart from being hip or used by Facebook/Google/Apple, what is the core functionality that should be available in any language and what are the core parts of the ecosystem around a language that makes it easier to pick up and start building? Looking at PL/SQL, what are the must-know packages that will get you started doing fun, useful libraries or applications? In this CodeTalk session, Steven Feuerstein interviews Morten Egan, aka the PL/SQL Ninja, who has been asking himself – and then answering via code – these very questions. We’ll take a look at some of the utilities and libraries he has built for codemonth.dk and plsql.ninja to see what is possible and discover the sources of Morten’s inspiration and creativity. And time permitting, he’ll demonstrate with some “live” coding as well!

Version Control for PL/SQL, Yalim Kerem Gerger, Gerger Tue, Feb 21, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM MST Version management of the PL/SQL source code has always been challenging. Database programmers lack the tools and utilities that make version control easy for developers who code with file-based programming languages such as Java and JavaScript. In fact, this is one of the primary reasons why large software teams avoid writing code in PL/SQL. In this presentation, you will learn how you can use Git, the prominent open-source version-control software built for distributed teams, to manage your PL/SQL source code. Using these techniques, you can manage your PL/SQL source code just like any other development team manages their file-based code base written in languages such as Java, JavaScript, or C#.
