Trying to explain complex things in simple terms

It has gone really quiet!

Posted by Martin Bach on August 4, 2010

Yes, it has, and I’m really sorry but at the moment all the blog writing has to take a lower priority. I am working very hard to finish my chapters of the upcoming  Pro Oracle Database 11g RAC on Linux, which turned out to be a lot more work than I expected. The last chapter I have to write from scratch is about ASM, and it’s again a meaty one. Luckily the first draft is complete and I sent it to Apress for review and the usual editorial work.

I so decided to quit my daytime job to focus entirely on the book, which I’d like to see released between Open World and the UKOUG conference this year.

Once completed, I intend to become a freelance Oracle database consultant, specialising on RAC (no surprises here!) and Oracle 11.2 upgrades. I am available from mid September (the first 4 weeks are already booked!) if you like-just contact me!
