About the dbaOnTap Blog

The dbaOnTap blog is intended to provide readers with information surrounding my research and experiences with data-centric technologies. While many of the posts are Oracle-centric, I have changed jobs and will be chronicling my trials and tribulations with the Snowflake DWaaS .  I welcome your comments.  Also check out my Facebook Page, DBA On Tap, where I am working to aggregate a number of blog posts from some of the industry’s experts.
