The ORA-WTF Blog

What That Function?

Welcome to my digital alcove, a space dedicated to the intricate world of Oracle technology, Software Development, DevOps, DevSecOps, and Cybersecurity. If you're navigating the vast sea of technology with a project in mind, you've anchored at the right spot. My mission is to cut through the clutter of low-quality tech posts proliferating across the internet by offering nuanced, in-depth content that transitions smoothly from basic introductions to complex, production-level setups.

In a world where "ORA-WTF??? What That Function? ;)" resonates with too many of us, I've taken it upon myself to document and share the quirks and qualms of Oracle technology—sometimes more effectively than Oracle does. While my blog thrives on educational and informational content, it's worth noting that the views expressed here are entirely my own and do not reflect those of any entity I have been or will be associated with.

My fascination with computers burgeoned in my youth, sparked by the modding of a first-person shooter game, SWAT 3. Those early days of tinkering, creating custom-coded maps, and hosting game servers laid the foundation for my technological journey. This playful exploration evolved into a profound expertise across a wide technological spectrum. I manage a home lab equipped with Dell 710 and Dell 720 servers, facilitating a plethora of test setups that allow me to stay at the forefront of technological advancements. Notably, I was an early adopter of Kubernetes in 2015, Gitlab DevOps, and Github Copilot, embracing new technologies with open arms.

On a professional front, my experiences are as broad as they are deep. I've navigated the complexities of Oracle Database, Oracle Apex, E-Business Suite, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and Oracle Netsuite, along with cloud platforms like AWS, GCP, Azure, and Digital Ocean. My programming languages of choice—Java, Powershell, Python, and PL/SQL—reflect a versatile skill set honed over years of dedicated practice.

Currently, my ambition stretches beyond the confines of technology itself; I'm passionately working towards integrating cybersecurity into SMBs, championing the belief that data is the new oil in today's digital economy. In this blog, I aim to not only share my knowledge and experiences but also to ignite a conversation about the importance of data security in the modern business landscape.

I invite you to join me on this journey, where learning is continuous, and the quest for knowledge is unending. Let's delve into the world of Oracle technology and beyond, exploring the limitless possibilities that await us in the realms of Software Development, DevOps, and Cybersecurity.
