SbhOracle welcomes 2013!!


Wish you all a great New Year 2013. I wish the year brings in lot of happiness, joy, success and opportunities in all your endeavors. SbhOracle enters into its third year. The last year saw some great heights, mixed responses from the viewers and streamlined reachability in the community.

The blog consistently clocked 500+ reviews every month – which is pretty a decent count. The book “Oracle Advanced PL/SQL Developer Professional Guide” got motivating and mixed reviews. My sincere thanks to Packt publishing who got me into this area and produce one of the first books on OCP (1Z0-146) exam preparation. As a newbie author, I did made a naive step and managed to produce a quality content. There were some reviews on the grammatical component of the language but that’s how we learn and improvise upon. Surely, there is no business alone and no growth without the quibbles. At the same time, the book was praised by some reputed names in the community and received motivating reviews for its planned structured content, examples and purposeful presentation. I am happy that the book made a good buzz among the readers and justified its objectives pretty well. Apart from being listed in all major bookstores, the book was honored to find a place in Oracle Magazine (Oracle Magazine July/August 2012 issue [Book beat section]), Oracle ACE newsletter, and library catalogs of Stanford, GW and Wollongong university.

Overall, it has been a great year of introspection and self discovery. Surely, there are several milestones to be set and many more of them to be achieved – and that’s how life is. Thank you all for what I am and where I am. Will be back with more useful content in 2013. Till then – enjoy blogging, enjoy reading!! Bye for now.

  1. This book starts with an overview of PL/SQL as the programming database language and outlines the benefits and characteristics of the language. The book then covers the advanced features that include PL/SQL code writing using collections, tuning recommendations using result caching, implementing VPD to enforce row level security, and much more. Apart from programming, the book also dives deep into the usage of the development tool SQL Developer, employing best practices in database environments and safeguarding the vulnerable areas in PL/SQL code to avoid code injection.
