Folks,

There are so many senior Oracle members around the globe who express their ideas and thoughts through their blogs and various posts. I just thought to collect such good blogs and keep it at one place here in OraFAQ. Keeping in mind the traffic for OraFAQ, it would be much more easier to reach these awesome technical blogs related to Oracle technology and it's abundant features, and of course written by the finest people around the globe who have had spend their lifetime in improving the technology.

I would encourage other forum members to keep adding to this thread with more good blog posts/URLs as and when you find a good one.

Regards,
Lalit


Disclaimer : Posters, please make sure you spare sometime to think before adding stuff here. I might ask a moderator to remove a post if found irrelevant. This is not to market someone's personal blog. It is my idea to bring some good content together at one place. Also, it would be easy for OraFAQ members to find a relevant link to help OP while addressing a question. It is ONLY my personal idea and that nobody asked me to do so. If anyone feels otherwise, please PM me or reach the moderators(FYI, I am not a moderator).

  • The first thing that comes to anybody's mind when thinking about a forum to ask an Oracle question is Thomas Kytes' popular site, AskTom. Not everybody would be aware that all the stuff that was at asktom has recently moved to THE TOM KYTE BLOG. For interested bloggers, have a look at http://tkyte.blogspot.in/ for more information about his blog.
    Also, I guess not everybody familiar with asktom would know that his site Ask Tom is now running on apex.oracle.com.
  • Who can forget Jonathan Lewis when the topic of discussion is Oracle? Read about him in his own blog with abundance of technical stuff. I love the way he points to a common issue at OTN forums, and based on that he expresses his thoughts on the subject.
    Explore more here Oracle Scratchpad.
  • Another good blog by Connor McDonald. Have a look at his blog here Learning is not a spectator sport.
  • You have seen him answering to questions posted at OTN forums, recently he has started volunteering in OraFAQ too. His blog posts have been really amazing the way he writes about the common bad practices/myths/misconceptions about Oracle features. He is Ed Stevens.
    Have a look at his blog here Ed Stevens, DBA.
  • I just love some the posts by Eddie Awad.
    Have a look at his blog contributions here Eddie Awad's Blog.
