PDB Me, ASAP! Oracle Database 12cR2 Multitenant Workshop

Monday, June 26, 10:30 am – 12:45 pm CDT

Oracle Database 12cR2 has dramatically revamped the range of Multitenant features, including faster PDB cloning with virtually no downtime, tighter resource control at the PDB level, ILM Automatic Data Optimization (ADO) policies for PDBs using Heat Maps, and even FLASHBACK recovery for individual PDBs. This 2-hour workshop explores the latest features of 12cR2 Multitenant and provides attendees with practical, hands-on experience as well as numerous code examples that they can immediately leverage when deploying, upgrading to, and migrating to CDBs and PDBs.

Data Stories: Predicting Asset Prices with Oracle Data Visualization Desktop, Data Collection, and R

Tuesday, June 27, 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm CDT

Data has a story to tell, and if told correctly, data can predict the future. In this session we aim to predict the future value of any asset through storytelling. We illustrate this with an intriguing tale using a technique that you can apply to the purchase or sale of your next car, boat, home, or airplane. We use a popular business aircraft as an example to tell this story. You will learn how you can quickly and easily: scrape the data from a market website, use Oracle Data Visualization desktop to identify the price drivers of this market, and the final result into a simple R statement that will predicts the future!

Visualizing Air Traffic Data with the FAA’s Satellite-based Surveillance System, a Pizza Box, a Raspberry PI, Apex, JET, and the Oracle IOT Cloud

Wednesday, June 28, 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm CDT

In this session we “science the #$%!”* out of a Raspberry Pi 3, Apex and the Oracle Internet of Things Cloud (*ref. The Martian Film). The Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) is a precise satellite-based surveillance system that broadcasts real-time weather and uses GPS technology to determine any aircraft’s location, airspeed, other date, and relays that data to air traffic control, aircraft, and to us because we are listening! We log and store this data in the Oracle IOT Cloud, then use Application Express to build a simple application to view this data in real time and report on it over time.

Performant Faceted Search Navigation in APEX with OracleJET and PL/SQL Table Pipelines

Wednesday, June 28,  3:30 pm to 4:30 pm CDT

Faceted navigation is arguably the most significant search innovation of the past decade. Leveraged by retail sites including Amazon, Home Depot, and Zappos, faceted search allows users to quickly narrow a massive result set by giving them guides (the facets) of the major groups of their results. In this session, we discuss both thick and thin ways of doing this, from enterprise applications such as Oracle Endeca to simple methods using PL/SQL pipelined functions. We show you a retail use case and PL/SQL faceted database search, APEX application, and Oracle JET extensions.
