My husband hates cracking eggs. I can see it when he hesitates right before hitting them on the side of the bowl. I can see him cringe a little when the gooey bits get on his hands. He would much prefer to have boiled eggs. He’s really good at making boiled eggs, he does it carefully and they turn out perfectly every time.

I’m putting together an article for Oracle Scene at the moment – I’ve delayed it for a couple of issues as we wanted the space for other tech articles, but my time has come. And I’m finding it very hard going. Why?
More than a year ago I started an exciting journey into a new world of Docker containers. I remember reviewing blogs, reading documentation, and of course, testing out Docker. I started looking for Oracle Linux images and was pleasantly surprised to find that the Oracle Linux team have already provided base images on the Docker…

Unfortunately for me, my experience with Oracle education has been predominately bad and former manager experienced the same where he was able to retake a course almost a year later since the original was unrealistic for real world scenarios.
With Oracle education, the most simplistic setup is used, e.g. no ASM, no Grid Infrastructure as it may add a little more complexity to set up?
A little advice, try to find out who will be the instructor before registering for the course. Call and ask.
Lately I’ve been upgrading our 11g Standard Edition databases in test environments to 12c Enterprise Edition and also plugging them in to a multitenant container database.
It’s a new technology for Oracle, but I was still quite surprised about the number of issues I faced when trying to plug in an existing non-CDB database. After resolving all these issues it has been quite painless process since then.
