After what seems an interminable wait, Oracle Database 12c Release 1 has finally been approved for general availability. I’ve been presenting on, experimenting with, and writing about 12c topics for the past several weeks and months and I’m pleasantly surprised with what I’ve found so far, especially the new Container Database (CDBs) and Pluggable Database (PDB) features.
I’ve also been working with my able colleague and good friend Anuj Mohan to build and promote the IOUG Oracle Database 12c Special Interest Group (SIG) on LinkedIn. Anuj and I will be posting new topics every week or so on that LinkedIn SIG, so please be sure to stay tuned to that SIG for new topics. We’ve already reached nearly 100 members, but we’re looking for contributions and discussions as we continue to explore Oracle Database 12c’s rich new feature sets.
Finally, I recently found out that I’ll be one of the lead-off hitters at the IOUG Sunday session extravaganza at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 on September 23, 2013. I’ll be presenting an updated version of my COLLABORATE13 session on my exploration of Oracle Database 12c’s most useful new features. If you’d like to get a taste of that presentation before OOW, we’ll be presenting it as an IOUG webinar at 13:00 CDT on Wednesday, August 28th. You can sign up for this webinar here.
Happy computing! and I hope to meet you virtually at the upcoming webinar, or in person at OOW2013.
