Oracle in 3 Minutes: Multi-Versioning

I felt like doing something new last weekend, so I went ahead and created Oracle in 3 Minutes, a new “show” on I plan to produce one three-minute episode a week. An episode is basically an audio and video screencast.

To start, I chose multi-versioning in the Oracle database as the topic of the first episode:

    I think the worked example and format worked really well.

    Thanks. Now the challenge is to produce 3 minutes every week. It sounds easy, but preparation takes much more than 3 minutes. The good thing is that I enjoy it.
