Jared Still is a senior database administrator at Radisys Corporation. Jared has been working with databases since 1988, and with Oracle in particular since 1994, beginning with Oracle version 7.0.13. During that time, he has participated in a wide range of database administration tasks, as is the norm at smaller companies. Data modeling, database design, and overcoming Compulsive Tuning Disorder (CTD) have all been part of the job. As part of the CTD recovery process, he began learning how databases and Oracle in particular actually work.
The revelation was that well-performing databases and applications do not happen by accident, but by design. And "by design" means that you must understand how databases work, and how to make efficient use of the SQL language to create scalable applications and databases. Jared's goal for this book is to make it easier for developers and database administrators to understand and use advanced SQL syntax. There are many features that have been introduced since Oracle 8i, and yet they seem to be seldom used. This book should help rectify that.
