I've been working with Oracle and SQL for many years, after completing my computer science degree in 2007, majoring in Oracle databases. I've been a software consultant ever since.

I've also obtained the Oracle SQL Expert certification.

I created this membership to teach Oracle SQL and database skills to many people. I want you to be able to improve your knowledge and skills with SQL and databases.

I've noticed that there are two main ways to learn advanced Oracle concepts - both of which have their own issues:

1. Learn it on the job, slowly, from reading other people's queries.

2. Attend an official training course, having to take days off work and costing thousands of dollars.

This solution will avoid both of those issues.

You can learn advanced topics of Oracle SQL in your own time, at your own pace, and not have to pay thousands of dollars.

When I started with Oracle SQL, I was only using the basics.

My queries were messy, and they were slow. Running these on a production database could have caused problems.

And maintaining them would have been hard.

You don't want to deploy messy or slow queries on a live production server.

You'd rather be responsible for implementing well-written, easy to maintain, and fast queries, wouldn't you?

As I learnt more Oracle SQL and learnt about advanced concepts such as sequences and materialized views, I found that I was better able to design solutions for the projects I was working on.

Imagine... knowing what feature of Oracle SQL will be the most suitable to any query that you write.

Imagine... being able to understand and contribute to what the more senior Oracle developers are talking about.

Imagine... the respect and admiration you'll receive from your coworkers when you are more knowledgeable in Oracle SQL.

Imagine... the relief and satisfaction of working with database administrators when you write clean and efficient SQL code.

So, why should you consider my solution?

  • I've been working with Oracle SQL for many years.
  • I've been writing about Oracle SQL topics and creating Oracle courses for years on the blog at DatabaseStar.com.
  • I can explain the concepts easily and show examples to help you learn and become productive with your Oracle SQL.
  • I've also obtained the Oracle SQL Expert certification, which has allowed me to improve my queries even further.
