|Connor McDonnald||Building great apps with great SQL||No-one becomes an app developer to spend their days doing data processing. We do it to explore complex algorithms, build beautiful applications, and deliver fantastic solutions for our customers. But so often we don't ever get to realize that dream. We're too busy dealing with ORMs and hand-coding all the nuts and bolts of data processing so we're left with precious little time for anything else. There is a better way. By expanding our knowledge of SQL facilities, we can write a lot less middle-tier code, and get performance benefits as an added bonus. This session highlights some SQL techniques to solve problems that would otherwise require a lot of complex coding, freeing up your time to focus on the delivery of great applications.|
|20 years of hints and tips||Your database skill set is more than what you have been read in the documentation, or on blogs, or on StackOverflow. It is the knowledge from trial and error, experimentation and sometimes painful failures. And that takes time, a long time. But this session will fast track that path. I'll share with you a collection of hints, tips, tools, features and techniques that over the years I’ve either seen, built myself or simply picked up from the smartest people in the community.|
|Jim Czuprynski||Saving Your Database from Alzheimer’s: Analytic Performance Improvements From Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory (DBIM)||Oracle Database 184.108.40.206 (12cR2) significantly improves the performance of Database In-Memory (DBIM) features, offering potentially massive improvements in real-time analytic processing and queries. This session takes a deeper look at what the Oracle 12cR2 optimizer is actually doing “under the covers” when it makes its decisions to process a query against IMCS-resident and non-resident tables, including improved In-Memory Joins, leveraging Join Groups, taking advantage of In-Memory Expressions, and utilizing In-Memory Filtering effectively. We’ll look at some real-world performance improvement metrics obtained against an Exadata Express OPC environment that shows how best to tackle using these newest DBIM features.|
|Leveraging Partitioned External Tables: Primer and Practical Examples||Oracle Database 12c is the first release to offer the capability to access a file in HDFS or HIVE format as an EXTERNAL table. Later releases include the capability to partition external tables in just about any file format, as well as retain them in IMCS. Through live and recorded demonstrations, this session will explain how an Oracle DBA can leverage these new features to gather data in tabular format from these file formats while leveraging the best tool ever designed to filter, sort, aggregate, and report information: Structured Query Language|
|APEX 18.1 and the REST of the world||One of the marquee features in Oracle Application Express (APEX) 18.1 is the improved support for consuming external REST services and building components using REST-enabled SQL. In this session you will learn how to reference external REST services as Web Source Modules and how to create Reports, Charts, Calendars and other components using these modules. Remote Oracle Databases can be accessed via REST-enabled SQL, i.e. create an APEX component driven by a SQL query as before - but have the SQL be executed on a remote Oracle Database over a REST interface using HTTPS and JSON. This session will also explain how to use external data sources with custom PL/SQL code and how to build plug-ins on the data sources.|

|Rollando Carrasco||Using Oracle Intelligent Bot service from the developer point of view||In this session you will learn the development part of the Oracle Intelligent Bot service. You will learn how to:
1. Create a conversation using YAML
2. How to create an integration with an external application via APIs calls
3. How to integrate the bot with Facebook
4. How to integrate our bot with an OAuth service, for example: Linkedin
5. How to create mini application within the bot
During the session we will highlight the developer side of building a bot with Oracle Intelligent Bot service. The main objective is to have a session where the developer can learn their role in this brand new service from Oracle and relate with it in such a way that they can start budiling chatbots right away.
The session is targeted for developers. Bulding a chatbot with Oracle Intelligent Bot is quite easy, but there are many things that we need to take care and where developers are key for delivering them. My idea is to higlight the usage of the service but keeping the developers as the important piece of the conversation. We will code a little bit during the session, show how to understand the YAML file that represent the conversation. We will integrate our bot with REST Services (APIs) and also integrate it with external services such as Linkedin and Facebook. The whole idea for this is to engage with the developers and show them how easy is to create a chatbot with the Intelligent Bot. The purpose of my session is to engage with the developers and make them pick the ORacle Intelligent Bot as a serious option for their development of this kind of solutions. I will showcase both the capabilities but also the developer side.
|Best Practices for API Design Using Oracle APIARY||In this session we will talk about how to design a good API. In this era of modern development, APIs are a very important element in our development, both for consuming and for creating and publishing them. Either we are APIs consumers or we are APIs producers we need to engage them and use them, that is why a good design is critical for the success in their usage and in their development.
We also need to differentiate what an API is, and understand what is their relationship with Services, Microservices, Web Services, etc. In that differentiation is where we need to be very clear and therefore have design principles to build a good, stable, scalable, versionable, secure API. We will share with u design principles for APIs development.
Nowadays there is a lot of information about APIs. We can say that if your product does not provide an API, is not a complete product. We can say that if your organization does not have public APIs, then is not innovating and is not part of the world's digital transformation. But at the same time, we feel there are some misunderstandings on what is an API. People tend to confuse them with Microservices, Services, Web Services or even a basic REST Interface is being called an API.
Developers need to be very clear with this and one way to do it is having design principles for their APIs. In order to be true on what an API is, we think that we can ellaborated in differet design principles and share with the audience best practices around it.
We want to showcase Oracle APIARY to design the APIs and incorporate our design principles and with a live demo incorporate our design principles into an API that we will build during the session.
The idea is to have developers engaging with APIARY to design APIs and use our design principles to model them.
|Otavio Santana||JNoSQL: The Definitive Solution for Java and NoSQL Database||JNoSQL is a framework and collection of tools that make integration between Java applications and NoSQL quick and easy—for developers as well as vendors. The API is easy to implement, so NoSQL vendors can quickly implement, test, and become compliant by themselves. And with its low learning curve and just a minimal set of artifacts, Java developers can start coding by worrying not about the complexity of specific NoSQL databases but only their core aspects (such as graph or document properties). Built with functional programming in mind, it leverages all the features of Java 8. This session covers how the API is structured, how it relates to the multiple NoSQL database types, and how you can get started and involved in this open source technology.|

|Cris Pedregal||Making databases smarter and faster: innovations enabled by engineering software and hardware together||This talk presents examples that illustrate how jointly designing a database and its underlying hardware enables innovations that overcome substantial technological challenges. Some are fundamental advances in the state of the art, and all yield reliability and performance improvements that discrete component (“converged”) computer systems can rarely attain. For example, tailoring internal network protocols enables re-ordering of messages to prevent analytics queries from delaying OLTP commits, or to instantly detect a server failure. Likewise, pushing intelligence to storage can reduce both network traffic and disk accesses substantially. Caching and replication across Flash treated as its own memory/storage layer (instead of just a fast block-oriented device) boosts throughput and reliability.
This talk is for anyone interested in infrastructure-grade computer systems — not just database implementation — and will aim to provide a window into the thinking of the hardware and software technical staff at a large-scale development organization with a reputation for building and delivering systems that are critical for IT infrastructure across all sectors of the global economy.
Note: This talk will be given in Spanish with detours into English. Audience questions welcome in Spanish, Portuguese, and English
