Ultimate SQL Tune-off with Jonathan Lewis and Kyle Hailey

Posted in: Technical Track

This is just a short blog post to spread the word about the upcoming webinar organized by Embarcadero with fellow member of OakTable Network — Jonathan Lewis and Kyle HaileyUltimate SQL Tune-off.

Ultimate SQL Tune-off

Kyle and Jonathan are on my list of the most respected Oracle performance experts and I could only imagine what they can deliver joining the forces. I’ll allow myself to quote the opening of the webinar as it sounds really interesting:

According to Jonathan Lewis, there is a basic strategy to writing efficient SQL, but it requires knowledge of the data, the metadata, and the intent of the query.

Jonathan will start with the basic principles of efficient data access and then show different ways of analyzing the data. He’ll then describe a graphical approach to finding the most efficient access path for a query and then apply the method to a problem he recently saw with one of his clients.

But wait… is there more than one way to skin a cat? Kyle Hailey thinks so, and he’s not afraid to let Jonathan know it!

Kyle’s fancy footwork will include his own approach to Visual SQL Tuning (VST) with some ring side support from DB Optimizer XE. Hitting below the belt? You be the judge.

The webinar is on June 10, 2010 at 11AM Pacific / 2PM Eastern.

Many Thanks!


Hey Alex,

Will this be available as a download, or in some format to watch later, for those of us in a inconvenient timezone?

@Neil: I believe it will be recorded and recording provided to the registrants for some time after the webinar. That means you still need to register.
