High-Performance PL/SQL with Steven Feuerstein:
2-Hour Online Class
Users hate to wait - for anything. For our applications to be successful, they not only must be correct (meet user requirements) and maintainable. They must also execute efficiently enough to avoid user frustration. This session reviews the most important techniques for improving PL/SQL performance, including data caching, FORALL and BULK COLLECT. After attending this session, you will be able to pro-actively identify opportunities for applying techniques that will most dramatically (generally, an order or magnitude or more) improve the performance of your PL/SQL code.
Watch Steven discuss BULK COLLECT in this clip from his preview webinar.
Watch Steven's full 1-hour webinar, "Look What You Can Do With PL/SQL!", a preview of this 2-day seminar (login or free registration required).

Praise for Steven Feuerstein:
"I've been coding PL/SQL for 10 years and it's incredible to find I've still so much to learn. To be honest I'd become pretty jaded by the "sameness" of things over recent times, but after your presentation I can say I'm now refreshed and re-invigorated. My excitement and enthusiasm are back! I can't say thanks enough."
"I've been doing software development since 1985, after receiving a degree in Computer Science. I have attended many trainings, seminars, and conferences, but yours, by far, is the best I've ever attended. In fact, I had stopped going to conferences and seminars because I was consistenly dissappointed. However, I found yours refreshing and loaded with ideas, tips, and information. Thanks so much for a most enjoyable and helpful seminar!!!!"
—Timothy, Dartmouth College
"I said to Steven afterwards that he'd "lit a fire," and this has been borne out by the number of people who are talking about improving their approach to PL/SQL. The most concrete outcome is that we have started cross-business-unit discussions of a common set of PL/SQL standards. Also how we can incorporate Steven's ideas as a model of best practice. I personally found the seminar very stimulating and entertaining."
—Tony, British Telecom
"On behalf of the many COUG members who attended your PL/SQL best practices class yesterday I want to say thanks and compliment you on a job well done! I know that many students, myself included, will be able to put at least some of the best practices we learned to immediate use in our daily jobs."
