Sharing Knowledge

Over the years we’ve learned a lot about Oracle products, about consulting, and about working in fast-paced environments. One of the most important things we’ve learned is that knowledge is meant to be shared. We believe in helping our community of DBAs and the Oracle community as a whole grow. This is why we publish our presentations, give away scripts, publish a monthly newsletter, and host regular DBA roundtable meetings.

Presentations and Articles
Terry Sutton, our Director of Managed Services and senior DBAs Ian Jones and Mike Dean are regular presenters at conferences such as Oracle OpenWorld, NoCOUG, RMOUG, LinuxWorld, and IOUG-A Live. Their presentations are educational and entertaining, and we have compiled their large collection of presentations and white papers on our site. From “How Are The Challenges Different For Internet DBAs?” to “Installing and Configuring Oracle on the Linux Platform,” all are available in our Presentations section.

Handy Free Scripts
If you are a DBA, you know the difference a good bag of tools and scripts can make. Over the years we’ve developed a wide array of database administration scripts and tools, and some of them are available for free download in our Handy Scripts section.

The Specialist
The Specialist is our monthly newsletter that contains valuable technical information for Oracle users, notices of upcoming events, and the latest news on happenings at Database Specialists. From information on installing 8i on Linux, to revealing many of the mysteries in the Oracle database, The Specialist contains database news you can use. Subscribe to The Specialist and read back issues here.

DBA Roundtable
Finally, we host a monthly DBA Roundtable for members of the Database Specialists team. At these roundtables we compare notes about new technologies, share solutions to challenging problems we’ve faced, show off new tools we’ve created and generally geek out. We approach our work as a team: each and every one of us has the collective knowledge and experience of all of Database Specialists at our disposal. This approach is a great benefit for our team members and our clients.
