Tuesday

AskTOM Mini Lesson: Rapid REST Enablement with Oracle REST Data Services [THT6899]
In this session see how to REST-enable a database using Oracle REST Data Services. See the steps, including “auto REST-enabling” a table, creating a specific REST service using an Oracle REST Data Services wizard, and then exporting the SQL generated by these tools, which you can include in your deploy scripts and/or use to learn how to write your own REST services using only SQL. If there is enough time the session also includes a walk-through of the process of adding security to your new REST services. Leave this session with an understanding of how to quickly create REST services on your own database.

2:15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. | Marriott Marquis (Yerba Buena Level) – Salon 3/4 – Along with Christopher Jones and Anthony Tuininga

4:00 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. | Moscone West – Room 2010
DevOps Tools for Database Developers [DEV5055]
Are you still thinking about modernizing your database development process…someday…maybe? Do you have directories full of .sql files you use to build your application? You know that unit tests should be included as part of your build process, and you are going to start adding them…maybe next week? If you have an Oracle Cloud account, you may be surprised at what tools you already have access to and how easy it is to get started. This session takes a look at Oracle Developer Cloud Service. It discusses some of the included tools and explores mixing in some open source tools you can use to automate building and testing your applications. The sooner you get started, the more it will save you in the long run.

Thursday

2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. | Moscone West – Room 3009
IoT for Oracle Database: Soldering, Python, and a Little PL/SQL [TRN4077]
Using way too much electricity and not quite sure where? Tracking usage is a great start, but analyzing data is easiest in a database. Building on the “Watch me make a Watt-watcher” project, this session begins with an overview of the steps and components used to assemble the hardware. Data ingestion to an Oracle Database Cloud is made straight forward with the Python cx_Oracle driver. Get an overview of other cx_Oracle features useful to IoT projects as well, and come away with the tools to track the data in your own projects and hopefully some new ideas. (But no electrical burns!)

My schedule could still change.  If it does, I’ll update this post.

If you can’t make my sessions and would like to meet up and chat, you can leave a comment here or send me a tweet.

There’s a lot going on all week and it’s going to be an awesome conference.  I hope to see you there!
