Your host during morning is:

5:00am  (CEST)           
       Blockchain in Oracle Database – Crypto-Secure Data Management
        speaker: Wei Hu

Blockchain is a new technology that has attracted a tremendous amount of interest. However, up to now, blockchain has mainly been used to develop decentralized multi-party applications. This talk will describe Oracle’s breakthrough technology that deeply integrates blockchain into the Oracle database. This makes it possible to implement blockchain in mainstream enterprise and government applications with minimal application changes.

We will begin by introducing the threats posed by hackers and compromised insiders. Then we will describe the in-database blockchain and how it can protect your data against these threats. We will compare this against conventional blockchains as well as share use cases from customers who have adopted this technology.


6:00am (CEST)             
        Creating and Configuring Node.js Applications for Oracle Database
        speaker: Christopher Jones

Node.js and TypeScript users will learn how to use Oracle’s node-oracledb module to write efficient applications and services for Oracle Database. Learn about configuration and connection management. See how best to work with relational data and also with Oracle’s latest document-style JSON features.


7:00am (CEST)               
       Intro to Machine Learning for Oracle Professionals 
        speaker: Heli Helskyaho

Machine learning is here and it will stay. Everybody should know what it is about and where it could be used.
So what is machine learning and where can it be used?
What is unsupervised learning, supervised learning, or reinforcement learning? What is deep learning? These and so many more questions will be answered in this presentation.
As an Oracle Professional how can I get into machine learning?


8:00am (CEST)            (this session will be in Russian language)
    Oracle Autonomous Database – How it works
        speaker: Rustam Khodjaev

This session will give information about Oracle Cloud, particularly about Always Free Cloud Services. The main and possible benefits of using the Oracle Cloud Free Tier Program for students, teachers, researchers, developers, dba and companies will be presented. Then will be explained about Oracle Autonomous Database, its architecture(such as Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Cloud, Machine Learning and etc). Also will be presented autonomous database services, provisioning and scaling database, autonomous database administration tasks. In the end of presentation will be Live Demo
where attendees will learn how to easily and quickly create Oracle Autonomous Database on Cloud.


9:00am (CEST)       
       What is new in the relational database world
        speaker: Julian Dontcheff 

The presentation covers a review of all new features including a comparison of the top RDBMS brands: Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Redshift, Aurora, SAP HANA.
New features of different database brands are added every year if not more often. The presentation is about how the leading database brands relate to each other, what is new and what is missing. Moreover, what is needed by developers and DBAs. What are the new innovations in the RDBMS world? Is there a leading database brand?

Your host during afternoon is:

1:00pm (CEST)            
        How to normalize your tables to improve data quality
        speaker: Chris Saxon

Normalization is the process of structuring your data to avoid duplication and increase quality.
But how does it work?
This back-to-basics session discusses the problems that can arise when you store unnormalized data. It then shows you how to normalize to avoid these issues.
This session is a must for anyone who creates database tables.


2:00pm (CEST)               
        Streaming ETL, and the Disentangling Power of Events
        speaker: Stewart Bryson

The proliferation of cloud applications through the modern enterprise has affected a fundamental shift in the kinds of data organizations are sifting through:

Not all data is relational data.
Not all data is corporate data.
The cost of storing data long-term is now negligible.

This shift has caused a new entry in the extract, transform and load category: the Streaming ETL platform.

In this session, I’ll dispel misconceptions around what “Streaming ETL” means, and explain why event-streaming and event-driven architectures compel us to rethink old approaches. Using Apache Kafka, the Confluent Platform, and ksqlDB, I will dissect the concept of events, how they relate to tables and streams, and how to disentangle sources and targets in a data pipeline.


    3:00pm (CEST)      
       Hands-on-Lab: Creating a Shopping Cart using Oracle APEX
       speakers: Mónica Godoy, Chaitanya Koratamaddi

This workshop walks you through the creation of a Shopping Cart application that allows administrators users to manage the products, customers, and stores.
On the other side, customers can review and add products to the Shopping Cart and eventually proceed to checkout.

IMPORTANT: Oracle can offer you a special Oracle Cloud Account Free tier with 500$/30days trial and no credit card or SMS verification to follow this APEX hands-on lab. To benefit from this offer, please register at least 2 days before the event.


5:00pm (CEST)               
        Back to the Future with Analytic Function
       speakers: Erik van Roon, Liron Amitzi

Analytic functions in SQL, also known as windowing functions, have been around for quite a while now.
Even if you are familiar with the concept of analytic functions and are working with them occasionally, you may not realize the full potential of this feature, and in how many different scenarios it can be used.

In this session, Liron and Erik will go over a few real-life client requirements they need to find a solution for.
Liron and Erik will go back to the time before analytic functions existed and will try to solve the client requirements without them. Then, they will return to the present where analytic functions exist, taking advantage of them to provide the same results.

So, if you’d like to see how using analytical functions can provide a simpler, more maintainable, and better-performing solution, then prepare to step into your future and come to this session.
