What to expect from Oracle DatabaseWorld at CloudWorld

There is only one day to go until Oracle CloudWorld in Las Vegas, the largest gathering of Oracle customers, partners, developers, and technology enthusiasts of the year!

Of course, the database team will be there, and this year, we will have our conference within a conference called DatabaseWorld. You will have multiple opportunities to meet with us in one of our technical sessions, customer sessions, or hands-on labs.

Plus, our very own Juan Loaiza will take to the main stage to deliver the database and developer keynote (The Future of Data and AppDev) on Wednesday at 2 p.m.

With hundreds of in-depth learning sessions across nine different tracks, no matter your role or where you plan to run your Oracle database (in the public cloud, on-premises, hybrid cloud, etc.), we will have all the product updates, technology deep-dives, and best practices sessions you need.

Must see DatabaseWorld Sessions

I plan to spend most of my time in the database and developer tracks and to help you plan your schedule, I’ve listed some of the sessions I plan to attend this week below. Remember, you can keep track of your schedule in the Oracle Events App.

How to watch Oracle CloudWorld 2022 Technical Sessions

Just over a month ago, we said goodbye to Las Vegas and Oracle CloudWorld 2022.

If you couldn’t make it in person or couldn’t get to all the sessions you wanted, don’t worry, as Oracle has made over 50 critical database technical sessions available on YouTube.

Here are some of the sessions I think you might find worth a watch:

Andy Mendelsohn’s Solution Keynote on Oracle Database 23c. In his keynote, Andy shared details on Oracle Database 23c, the next long-term support release for the database. 23c was code-named App Simple because the primary goal of this release was to assist developers in building next-generation mission-critical, high-performance database apps.

Juan Loaiza’s Solution Keynote on JSON Relational Duality. Juan’s session focuses on one of the marque features of Oracle Database 23c, JSON Duality Views, which promises to provide use-case simplicity of JSON with multi-use case power of relational. With the help of Tirthankar Lahiri and Beda Hammerschmidt, Juan explains how this new approach solves the age-old problem of object-relational mismatch.

Jeff Smith’s technical session Tips and Tricks for the Oracle Database Developer[LRN1523], where Jeff explores Which features of Oracle SQL Developer, Oracle SQL Developer Web, Oracle SQLcl, and Oracle REST Data Services will save database developers the most time?

Vlad Haprian’s session explains Operational Property Graphs [LRN3789] and how they are part of the standard SQL in Oracle Database 23c. He includes some great, simple-to-follow examples too.

If you are looking for more information on our in-database microservices support, you will want to check out Deepak Goel’s session on Distributed Transactions for Kubernetes Microservices [LRN3484].

As always, there were several great sessions by Conor McDonald, including one where he shared his Five-Step Guide to SQL Tuning [LRN3790].

If performance-related sessions are what you are after, then you might want to check out my session on Harnessing the Power of Oracle Database Optimizer Hints[LRN1479] and Nigel Bayliss’s session on Automatic Indexing.

If you are interested in knowing, How to Write Great SQL That’s Easy to Maintain, check out Chris Saxon and Alex Nuijten’s session.

Finally, if you want more details on what to expect in 23c and the features that should make your life a lot easier, you should check out Gerald Venzl’s session on Oracle Database application development: what’s new, what’s next?

And don’t forget to save the date for CloudWorld 2023, which is happening September 18–21 in Las Vegas.
